About Us

TRIO/ASP extends service to students from low-income families, students with disabilities, and/or students who are the first generation in their families to attend college. Applicants also must have been admitted to UIC and demonstrated a need for academic support. Admission is limited to 160 participants.

The goal of TRIO/ASP is to help increase the retention and graduation of low-income, first-generation college students and to foster an institutional climate supportive of their success. We seek to accomplish these goals through supportive services that foster academic achievement, personal growth and development, self-actualization, self-confidence, and leadership.
