The goal of TRIO is to provide services to Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWTech) students who are low-income, first-generation (neither parent nor guardian has a bachelor’s degree and neither does the student), or students with disabilities. We, at TRIO, encourage students to complete their degree or certificate and transfer to a four-year college in Washington or elsewhere, if possible. The staff at TRIO strive to make college a rewarding and successful experience for our students.
During these difficult times with the COVID-19 outbreak across our nation and here at home, TRIO is still here for you and able to serve you remotely.
