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 enrolled in classes, and have a need for academic support. Additionally, students must meet at least one of the following criteria:
- Income: Each year, the U.S. Department of Education publishes guidelines which define low income status based on family size. Click here for income guidelines.
- First Generation College Student: First generation college students are defined as those whose parents or legal guardians have not completed a Bachelor’s 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.
