The TRiO Student Support Services Project

The SSS Project for Students with Disabilities is one component of the TRiO program, a federally funded group of outreach programs developed to increase participation and provide academic support to students in higher education.

The SSS Project for Students with Disabilities at San Diego State University serves more than 200 students each year by supplementing legal accommodations through intensive, individualized support services to students with documented disabilities.


 Meet our NEW TRIO Project Advisor


 My name is Mariela Melendrez Rodriguez, and I am the new Project Advisor for the TRiO Student Support Services program at San Diego State University! 

I am a recent graduate from the M.S. Rehabilitation Counseling program here at SDSU and graduated in May of 2019. I conducted my graduate internship at the Student Ability Success Center (SASC) by providing accommodations to students with disabilities attending our university. I have now been given the fantastic opportunity to come back and work in TRiO and still be a member of the SASC family. 

Some of the services I can provide to students registered with SASC are academic advising, assistance in applying for financial aid and scholarships, help with time management, and assistance in applying to graduate school for example. 

Please feel free to contact me to learn more about what TRiO has to offer and how to become a TRiO participant!

To contact Mariela, please call her at 619-594-8336, or email her at
