Welcome to TRIO SES at the University of Kansas

Supportive Educational Services (SES) is a federally funded TRIO Program known nationally as Student Support Services. SES provides eligible students with tools and services to successfully earn undergraduate degrees at the University of Kansas. 

SES works with first-generation, limited-income students, and students with disabilities, to help them remain in undergraduate programs and complete their degrees. The program has a 30-year history of success at KU, and includes professional mentoring, academic advising, tutoring, and cultural events. 

All SES services are free, but students must apply and be accepted to the program.
