Title III

What is Title III?

Title III refers to the U.S. Department of Education's Strengthening Institutions Program. The program's nickname, Title III, comes from the Higher Education Act of 1965, where it’s cited in Title III, Section 311-315.

The program provides funds to help institutions of higher learning expand their capacity to serve low-income students and strengthen the institution’s academic quality, fiscal stability and institutional management. In October 2007, SWIC received the first installment, $399,997, of a five-year grant totaling nearly $2 million.
