Selection for the Cal Poly Student Support Services (SSS) program is partially based on students meeting at least one of the following federal requirements:

  • First-Generation College Students
  • First-Generation college student means:

    1. A student, neither of whose natural or adoptive parents received a baccalaureate degree; or
    2. A student whose sole custodial parent did not receive a baccalaureate degree;
  • Low Income Eligible
  • Based on the U.S. Department of Education low-income guidelines, determine if your family's taxable income fell at or below the listed income for your family size.

  • Disability Eligible
  • If a student has a documented (physical or learning) disability, the student is eligible for the Student Support Services program.

    Students who have a disability, as defined by Section 504/ADA, may be eligible for participation in SSS as a result of the educational needs stemming from that disability. Submit a copy of disability documentation or ask your counselor in Disability Resource Center to send a referral notice to the SSS office.
