Student Support Services (SSS) is a 100% federally funded TRiO program authorized by the U.S. Department of Education. Each year, the SSS program at Gogebic Community College is awarded $248,063 to provide access and support to 160 students. In order to be eligible for the SSS program, students must meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • First Generation Status: A student, neither of whose parents have completed a four-year college degree (baccalaureate degree). In the event that one parent supports the student, eligibility will be determined based on the supporting parent's degree status.
  • Income: A student who meets current TAXABLE income guidelines as defined by the U.S. Department of Education. Please contact an SSS staff member concerning income guidelines for eligibility.
  • Documented Disability: A student with a documented disability that limits her/his ability to participate in college. Students are also encouraged to access disability related accommodations.

Gogebic Community College is committed to ensuring equal access and reasonable accommodations to students with documented disabilities. Students with disabilities are considered for admission to Gogebic Community College on the same basis as all other applicants. Once admitted, students may request support services in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Documents providing evidence of disability must be presented to the Office of Accessibility Services (T105E) and a confidential file established before academic accommodations may be approved and implemented. It is the student's responsibility to initiate contact with the Office of Accessibility Services to request reasonable accommodations. Services will be issued upon request, if eligibility is determined.
