Students can be referred to the program at any time in their academic career
Students in the program must demonstrate academic need and meet eligibility criteria (low-income, first generation college student or student with a documented disability)
Students can download an application from this website or students may go to Parenzo 104 to complete an application and review eligibility
In compliance with the U.S. Department of Education, 2/3 of program participants must be first generation college students from low-income families, or students with disabilities. In addition, 1/3 of the participants with disabilities must also be low-income.
At times, students may be placed on a wait list to participate.
TRIO serves full-time students at Westfield State; we unfortunately do not serve DGCE students.
