Am I Eligible for the SAS/TRiO Program?
To qualify for this program you must meet one or more of the following criteria:
- Low income (check with us if you are not sure about this or follow this link to the federal guidelines for low income levels).
- First generation college student (neither of your parents, or the person who raised you, has a four year bachelor's degree).
- Documented disability (physical, learning, or psychological/emotional).
- You must have some type of academic need. This criteria is broadly defined, and may include low GPA, low entrance or placement test scores, a need for assistance in completing college level math course, and/or being a transfer student or nontraditional student.
If you are not eligible for the Success at Southern/TRiO program, Academic Support Programs (formerly the ACCESS Center) in the Stevenson Union is available to all students. They offer academic advising and disability resources, which includes services for students with documented disabilities.
