Food Stamp Eligibility for Students

Posted by medliorator on November 24, 2008

Most able-bodied students ages 18 through 49 who are enrolled in college or other institutions of higher education at least half time are not eligible for SNAP benefits. However, students may be able to get SNAP benefits if otherwise eligible and they:

  • Get public assistance benefits under a Title IV-A program;

  • Take part in a State or federally financed work study program;

  • Work at least 20 hours a week;

  • Are taking care of a dependent household member under the age of 6;

  • Are taking care of a dependent household member over the age of 5 but under 12 and do not have adequate child care to enable them to attend school and work a minimum of 20 hours, or to take part in a State or federally financed work study program
