Student Support Services Fact Sheet

Student Support Services - 
"Helping Undergraduates Excel at Your Home by the SEA"

Student Support Services, a federal TRIO Program funded through the Department of Education (DOE), has been an integral part of Hampton University for the past 40 years. Our goal is to increase the retention rates of eligible students, improve graduation rates among our participants, and to produce alumni equipped to matriculate to graduate school. As a member of our program, you will have access to a range of services designed to help you successfully navigate your transition to Hampton University.

To better meet our students' needs, we've developed initiatives to regularly inform and engage parents, corporate partners, and faculty liaisons. The main components of our program include:

  • The Tutoring Center
  • The SEA Protocol Academic Tracking and Counseling initiative
  • Financial Literacy Initiatives
  • Academic Enrichment and University Transition services
  • A Peer Mentor Program
  • Grant Aid for eligible active participants with demonstrated unmet financial need
  • An annual Graduate & Professional Schools Tour
  • Social and Cultural Excursions

Eligibility Requirements

To qualify for participation in the program, an applicant must be a citizen or permanent resident enrolled at Hampton University, and meet one or more of the following requirements established by the DOE.

  • The student's family's TAXABLE income for the preceding year did not exceed 150% of the federal poverty level amount.
  • The student is a first-generation college student (neither residential parent nor legal guardian has earned a bachelor's degree).
