Application and Eligibility


Eligible students must have a need for academic support and also meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • Be first-generation college students
  • Meet federal income guidelines
  • Have a documented physical/learning disability


Students are usually enrolled in SSS upon entry to Rider, and are provided services until they graduate. Referrals for potential SSS candidates are welcome at any time. Applications can be completed online, downloaded from this Web site (scroll down for options), or picked up at the office during business hours. For processing purposes and acceptance into the program, completed SSS applications must be accompanied by the parent's/guardian's IRS 1040 tax form (or that of the student, if s/he is independent.)
