Support Services is part of a network of federally funded programs called
TRiO, whose objective is to
expand educational access to and opportunity in, higher education for all
Americans. While student financial aid programs help students overcome
financial barriers to higher education, TRiO
programs help students overcome class, social, and cultural barriers to higher
The University of Montevallo has had a Student Support Services (ASPIRE) program since 1979; and annually provides individual and group services to 200 students. The mission of ASPIRE is to increase the academic success, retention and graduate rates of first generation (neither parent/guardian has completed a Bachelor’s degree), low-income students and individuals with a disability.
An important aspect of the ASPIRE Program is that it provides a consistent and ongoing support system that program participants can depend upon throughout their time here at UM; and they may participate throughout their enrollment at UM
|If students are committed to achieving their academic goals, they
will find great benefits in being an ASPIRE participant!
The ASPIRE Program office is located in Main Hall, Lower Level. It is easily accessible from the parking lot off Vine Street and is right next to the Anna Irvin Dining Hall.
