The SAIL Program-Celebrating 42 Years of Excellence at CSUSB

The Student Assistance in Learning (SAIL) Program is a TRIO Student Support Services grant, which has served nearly 7,000 students at Cal State San Bernardino since 1981. Administered by the U.S. Department of Education, the federal TRIO programs began with the passage of the Educational Opportunity Act of 1964. TRIO includes outreach programs designed to assist low-income, first-generation, and students with disabilities as they proceed through the academic pipeline from middle school to post-baccalaureate programs. The specific goals of TRIO Student Support Services programs like SAIL, are to increase the college retention and graduation rates of targeted students at the undergraduate level through intensive and personalized academic support and advising services.

Prospective 2024-2025 Students

If you are interested in joining the program in Fall 2024, you are encouraged to complete SAIL’s 2024-2025 Interest List. Eligible students on the interest list will be contacted via their MyCoyote email address with additional enrollment steps.
