To be eligible, students must meet the following NSF and local eligibility criteria:

- Must be a U.S. Citizen or national, refugee, or lawful alien;

- Must be enrolled full-time (minimum of 12 credit hours each fall and spring semesters) in one of the targeted disciplines that lead to an associate’s degree in a technology area associated with a targeted S-STEM discipline;

- Must demonstrate academic potential, as determined by one of the following:

- Composite ACT score of 21 OR COMPASS placement scores of 50 algebra / 85 reading / 81 writing OR High school GPA of at least 3.0;

- Must demonstrate financial need, as defined by the U.S. Department of Education;
