First you should ask, is TRIO UB hosted by Finlandia University successful?

As a grant program, we are constantly changing, but one thing that has remained consistent is the years of successfully helping our participants find their own personal success in life.

To measure our success, TRIO UB looked at national statistics of students who fit the profile of our participants.

  • Nationally 40% of high school graduates will move to education beyond high school, 78% of TRIO UB participants entered some form of education beyond high school.
  • Nationally 12% of students who fit the TRIO UB participants profile complete a 4-year bachelor’s degree in a 6-year window, 26% of program participants have completed a 4-year degree.

TRIO UB hosted by Finlandia University is doubling national averages for students coming from backgrounds similar to our program participants.

*Program statistics have been compiled over the last 15 years and national statistics come from the Pell Institute.
