Get Screened for Benefits
Reynolds Community College knows that students’ educational and career goals are important and Student Support Services can help them address any hurdles that can occur along their journey. Student Support Services connects students with resources and support to help them overcome emergencies so that their goal of graduation is not derailed.
The Student Support Services team connects students with a variety of free and comprehensive social services and community resources so they can stay focused on their academic goals. These resources and support include:
- Benefits Screening – Learn whether you qualify for federal and state benefits, such as food and nutrition programs (SNAP, WIC), health insurance (Medicaid), cash, utilities, and more. You can also get assistance in applying for these benefits.
- Tax Preparation – Get help maximizing your tax credits and refund while filing your taxes for free.
- Health Care Enrollment – Explore health care insurance options and receive help with enrolling or renewing your coverage.
- Financial Education – Achieve your financial goals with guidance in budgeting and debt management.
- Community Resource Referrals – Get connected to community resources and agencies who can help you with your barriers or challenges. Areas include healthcare, food access, utility assistance, and more.
Students interested in learning about their eligibility for these benefits and resources can complete a profile using the online Single Stop self-screening tool. Once a profile has been created, a staff member will reach out to review the results and help determine the assistance you could receive at no cost.
Single Stop Screener Tool
Student Support Services uses a screening tool called Single Stop, which is a short, easy-to-use benefits screener and referral database to engage students about their potential eligibility for benefits and to refer them to organizations that can help them apply for those benefits.
Students can complete this quick screening online and then meet with Single Stop staff for assistance with finding local resources and supports. Single Stop will screen for services such as health coverage, food, housing and more.
Complete the Single Stop benefit screener here. Once the profile has been created, a staff member will reach out to review the results and help determine the assistance you could receive at no cost.
