The Long Beach City College TRiO program, Growth and Opportunities Project (GO Project), is funded by a TRiO Student Support Services grant from the U.S. Department of Education. This program serves the academic needs of first-generation, low-income and students with disabilities.
TRiO programs do not provide financial aid or scholarships; the support programs are designed to increase retention, graduation and transfer success for program participants. The programs work primarily with students interested in transferring to a 4-year college or university after receiving their AA/AS Degree at Long Beach City College. TRiO programs provide opportunities for students to learn about careers and educational opportunities beyond Long Beach City College.
**The Department of Education allows program participants to receive services up to four years as they prepare to earn an Associate’s degree and transfer to a 4-year college/university.
