Supporting You In and Out of the Classroom

You study, work, raise a family, and hold everything together – you shouldn't have to worry about your next meal. SUNY offers automatic enrollment in SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Programs) for eligible students enrolled in the Online Training Center, Educational Opportunity Centers, and ATTAIN labs.

What does it mean to be eligible?

  • Must be engaged at least half-time in a career or technical education program, remedial course, basic adult education, literacy, or English as a second language program through SUNY’s Educational Opportunity Centers and Advanced Technology Training and Information Networking (ATTAIN) labs.
  • Meet the income eligibility requirements for SNAP in New York State.

To learn more, ask about SNAP auto enrollment when you speak to your Online Training Center representative after completing the short interest form above.
