Two years ago, emergency government aid opened the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) to all college students enrolled at least half-time who were eligible for work-study programs or had an expected family contribution (EFC, as determined by your FAFSA) of $0.  As the COVID-19-era expansion for SNAP is expiring May 11th, we urge qualified students to submit their application or recertification for this program to qualify for these federal food benefits.

More information regarding this program, requirements, and resources, can be found on the MN Office of Higher Education website,
