Message from the Director:

Welcome to the Western Oregon University’s Student Enrichment Program (SEP) TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) website. Following US Department of Education Guidelines, our program is committed to supporting low income, first generation and/or students with a documented disability. We are honored to have served and supported this vibrant community of citizens and scholars for over 30 years! SEP is dedicated to helping students succeed in reaching their academic and personal goals as they navigate their way through their college experience here at WOU. Our hands-on, holistic approach to academic advising, along with our tuition-remitted First Year Seminar (FYS) courses, workshops and financial support services help our participants successfully persist in their collegiate studies to graduation. Please explore our website and discover the many ways students benefit from our services.

We look forward to helping you achieve academic and personal success,
