TRIO College Programs

Individualized Advising

Advising sessions are individually designed with open communication in mind so we can get to know you as an individual. 

We provide weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly meetings and strive to build a close working relationship that enables you to effectively reach your academic, career, financial, and personal goals. 

You will work collaboratively with your Advisor to develop a College Completion Plan in order to map out your goals each semester and each year. This plan is reviewed and updated on a regular basis as you may encounter roadblocks or discover new paths. 

Working with your Advisor, you can measure and evaluate progress as you learn to navigate the university system and access resources that will assist you at the University of Southern Maine. 

To schedule an appointment, you can either call us at 207-780-4627 or click the link associated with your advisor.
