What is Title III?
Title III is a 5-year U.S. Department of Education grant intended to improve students’ retention through completion of their college courses and increase their financial literacy.
The Title III department at Saint Paul College includes a Student Success Team, who provide integrated support to assist students enrolled in pre-college courses. These integrated services that contribute to academic success include:
- Academic Advising/Workshops – Provides feedback on academic progress and serves as part of the students’ journey to success during their first two semesters at Saint Paul College.
- Supplemental Instruction – Offers individualized academic support in math, reading, and writing. This academic support is provided by professional tutors in Saint Paul College’s own Fellows Program.
- Orientation – Supplies a robust introduction to Saint Paul College that enhances students’ first-semester experience and helps them successfully transition to college.
- Financial Literacy – Helps students gain knowledge and skills in responsible borrowing, financial planning, and literacy.
- Wrap-Around Support – Connects students to the resources they need to achieve their educational goals.
- Bridge Program – Provides eligible students with an opportunity to build and practice math, reading, writing, and other academic skills before beginning their Saint Paul College course.
To be eligible for Title III, students must:
- Have an academic need or require pre-college course work
