Service Eligibility

Interested students should contact the SSS department to receive application materials. Students must qualify as first-generation (neither parent or guardian received a bachelor's degree) AND low income (see current income guideline below), first-generation only or have a documented disability (as supported by documentation submitted to the Disability Services Office). Two-thirds of LHUP's SSS program must include first-generation college students who meet federal income guidelines. One-third of the total population of students with documented disabilities must also qualify as low-income.
