College Reach-Out Program

WELCOME TO THE COLLEGE REACH-OUT PROGRAM

The College Reach-Out Program, also known as CROP, at Gulf Coast State College is a state funded program designed to promote post-secondary educational opportunities for 6th-12th grade students from selected schools in Bay, Franklin and Washington Counties. The program serves students from various cultural and socio-economic backgrounds and offers a pathway to a successful experience. 

OUR GOAL

Our goal is to strengthen the educational motivation and preparation of low-income and educationally disadvantaged students in grades 6th through 12th, who, without special support and recruitment efforts, "would be unlikely to seek admission to a community college, state university or pursue other educational opportunities." We are also committed to increasing the number of  students who successfully enter and complete a technical or college program. 

Eligibility

Participants must be U.S. citizens, permanent residents or an eligible non-citizen. They must also meet any of the following criteria: 

First generation (neither parent has four-year bachelor degree)

Low income (based on federal guidelines

Has a need for academic support
