SNAP (Food Stamps)

Students

Students may be able to receive SNAP benefits if they meet certain requirements. If you are a student, your eligibility specialist can answer questions about whether you can receive SNAP benefits.

Utah has temporarily added two new student exemptions. These temporary exemptions now include any student who is eligible to participate in State or Federally financed work-study. Students can find information about their eligibility to participate in work-study in their financial aid award letter. Additionally, the exemptions also include students who have an Expected Family Contribution of $0 will also qualify; if family circumstances have changed since students entered college, they can work with their financial aid office to reflect those changes. If students have any questions, if they currently meet the new criteria, they can contact their financial aid office for clarification, students should get this information in writing to help establish their eligibility.
