TRiO Student Support Services

The TRiO Student Support Services program’s goal is to increase the college retention and graduation rates of its participants, and to facilitate the transfer of its participants to four-year colleges and universities. TRiO participants may receive peer and professional mentoring, assistance with study skills, career advising, and financial literacy, in addition to opportunities to attend cultural events and visit four-year schools. For more information, contact the Academic Support Coordinator at 906-302-3004.

Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an internationally recognized academic support program that targets traditionally difficult courses. Students come together in regularly scheduled study sessions to compare notes, discuss course materials, develop creative study tools, practice problem solving, and prepare for exams. These sessions are facilitated by trained SI Leaders that attend the course sessions and prepare study materials for use during SI sessions. SI is a great tool to help you learn course material with fellow students and is just one more program that Bay College has implemented to provide you the opportunity to succeed. Check to see if any of your courses have a SI section available! If you have any questions about SI, contact the Academic Support Services Coordinator at 906-302-3004.
