Do I Qualify for the Program?


Do you meet at least 1, if not more, of the criteria below?

1. First Generation Students

- Does the parent you live with have a 4 year degree or higher?  If no, you are considered a first generation student!

2. Meet Income Guidelines

-This varies by year.  Please contact the office. 

3. Student with a Disability 

-A note from a doctor, diagnostic testing, or an IEP will provide sufficient documentation. 

Application Process


COPE Student Support Service has a limited number of spots.  Interested students should fill out an application.  Applicants will then be interviewed by a staff member.  This interview is to learn more about the students and their goals.  

Students are accepted on the basis of:

- eligibility

-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.
