TRIO/PROJECT SUCCEED

Project Succeed logo

P.S ... It’s not an afterthought when you set out for success!

Student Support Services and Project Succeed are available here at HCC! We provide a comprehensive array of information, counseling, academic instruction, and other support services to students who may have been underrepresented in colleges in the past.


Project Succeed is a federally funded academic retention program designed to enhance the academic success, retention, and academic goal completion of project participants.


As a participant, you receive ongoing individual attention and support by meeting with a coordinator to discuss your goals and develop a strategy for success!

Project Succeed provides services from a team of professionals dedicated to helping
participants achieve their educational goals. Here’s what Project Succeed can do

Mandatory (required) provision of the SSN: The Department of Education requires Project Succeed to request an SSN from every student that applies to the program.  The SSNs are very important as they allow the Department to match participant lists with the federal financial aid files for purposes of tracking participant outcome.  Providing the information on this form is mandatory (to be accepted into the Project Succeed Program); failure to disclose a SSN will not result in the denial of any rights, benefits or privileges to which you are entitled.

The information that is collected on this form will be retained in the program files and may be released to other Department officials in the performance of their official duties
