Application and Interview Process

COPE Student Support Service has a limited number of spots.  Interested students should fill out an application.  After completing the application, applicants will have an informal interview with a staff member to learn more about the student and his or her goals.  




Students are accepted on the basis of:


potential success and need assessment


available space

Since this program is funded through a federal TRIO grant, no additional cost will be charged to the student. Early application to the program is encouraged since enrollment is limited.
