However, we highly recommend applying with an experienced advocate. We are here to make the application easier, help interact with the Department of Social Services, keep your benefits, and connect you to other resources! Also, students who apply with an advocate have a 20% higher acceptance rate compared to those who apply on their own.
Please bring with you:
1. A laptop, ipad, and/or a smartphone with a working camera
2. Physical or digital copy of State ID, Driver's License, Passport, or Birth Certificate Required documents
3. Required student documents
Note: All required documents can be physical copies, screenshots, or downloaded PDFs. If you are missing any required documents, a Calfresh Advocate can give you instructions on how to upload missing documentation at a later date and alternate documentation that you can use if you do not have access to a certain required document. Most documents students are required to provide can be found online through BARC, Financial Aid, and other relevant student portals.
