  • completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA); and

Meet our NEW TRiO Project Advisor 


My name is Nicky Kratzer (she/they) and I am the new TRiO Academic Advisor here at San Diego State University! I am so excited to be here and work with our SASC and TRiO students.

As the TRiO Academic Advisor, I help students get registered for classes, review their degree evaluation, and make a graduation plan. I also meet with students to work on scholarship applications, learn more about time management and study skills, and write personal statements for grad school applications (among many other things). TRiO also has a tutoring and mentoring program.

If you have any questions about becoming a TRiO participant or anything related to TRiO, please let me know. I would be happy to help!
