EDGE Program Eligibility

Are you eligible to become an EDGE member?

You are eligible to participate in EDGE if you are enrolled at San Juan College as a full time student (12 credit hours a semester, or planning on completing 24 credit hours/year), are a U.S. citizen, have a need for academic support, AND you can answer “YES” to at least one of the following questions:


1)      Are you a first generation college student?
       (First generation means that neither of your parents or guardians received a four year degree before                             you turned 18 years old.)


2)      Are you eligible for a Pell Grant or income-challenged?


3)      Do you have a documented disability (physical or learning)?



If you answered “YES” to at least one of these questions, you may be eligible and should apply to EDGE! You may pick up an application in person, in room 1414, by the Little Theatre!

EDGE serves over 160 students each year and new participants are accepted until all available spaces are filled. >Spaces are limited…So apply EARLY!
