The Department of Human Services (DHS) decides who qualifies for food stamp (SNAP) benefits. DHS uses many different factors, including your income. DHS will consider the income you listed when you fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Your college or university must notify you in writing if you qualify for SNAP benefits. Undocumented students are not eligible for SNAP.
Schools may also provide more resources. You should check to see if your school has a public benefits liaison or point person. They can help you apply for SNAP.
