A Student Support Services Project
Furthering education can seem overwhelming, but the PROMISE Program at York Technical College eases the transition to college by providing the support students often need. The program offers a wide variety of free services and programs to help students achieve their academic, career and personal goals, while confronting the challenges of completing a college degree.
PROMISE, the acronym for the College's Student Support Services (SSS) Project, stands for Providing Resources Opportunities and Motivation to Improve Student Endeavors. SSS is one of seven federally funded programs known collectively as TRIO Programs. All TRIO Programs are authorized and funded through Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 and administered by the US Department of Education. SSS has been in operation at the College since 1978. The program was renamed PROMISE to coincide with the program's goals and objectives.
