  • Students with Disabilities (see Disabilities Services for more information)
  • Students with limited English proficiency (English is not the native language)
  • Students preparing for a Non-Traditional career field (examples: male nurses or female automotive technology students)
  • Economically Disadvantaged (identified through Pell eligibility)
