  POPLARVILLE – Applications are being accepted by Student Support Services at Pearl River Community College for the 10th anual Summer Bridge to College Program, also known as START.  The “START” acronym stands for Students Transitioning to Academic Success and Responsibilities at The Community College.
  The START program  runs from June 25 to July 23 and allows students eligible for Student Support Services to earn up to 9 college credits while learning skills to help them be successful in the community college setting. The primary criteria for Student Support Services participation is the need for academic support, based on ACT scores, grade point average in high school, graduation from a GED program or being a non-traditional student who has been out of school for more than five years.
  Participants must also meet at least one of the following criteria:  considered low-income, neither parent has graduated from a four-year college with a degree and/or have a disability. Students accepted for the START program pay no tuition and are required to apply for a federal Pell Grant (FASFA) to possibly cover the cost of books, fees, dormitory room, etc.
  To be considered for START, students must complete a two-step process:
• Submit a signed admissions application to the PRCC admissions office that includes an official high school transcript or GED test scores, along with ACT scores. (Students must be accepted as PRCC students by the admissions department.)
• Mail a completed Summer Bridge Program (START) application to Georgia Field, Student Support Services, P.O. Box 5118, Poplarville, MS  39470 or fax the application to 601-403-1042.
