TRiO Student Support Services programs are designed to serve college students who meet specific program requirements. To be eligible for admission to GOCC’s SSS program, students must be a U.S. citizen or meet residency requirements for federal student financial assistance, be accepted to GOCC, and have a need for academic support. Additionally, students must meet at least one of the following criteria:
- Income Eligibility: Each year, the U.S. Department of Education publishes guidelines which define students' income status based on family size and taxable income. Click here for income guidelines.
- First Generation College Student: First generation college students are defined as students whose natural or adoptive parents did not receive a 4-year college degree
- Disability: Disability refers to students with a physical or mental impairment which limits a major life activity. This includes learning disabilities. To qualify for the SSS program under this criterion, you must have documentation of your disability.
