Student Eligibility

Convenient And Simple Application Processing

Provide faster service, accurate processing of applications, and greater efficiency to the family of schools in your district.

Eliminate Manual Data Entry

Manual data entry is not only time consuming, but frequently leads to mistakes due to human error. Automatic application handling allows for batch scans of 25-50 free and reduced lunch applications with one click of a button.

Recognize Students

Despite qualifying, many students simply don’t participate for free and reduced meals. Increase program involvement and income by detecting students who have not reapplied with their siblings. Identify students eligible to obtain meal benefits by connecting family members with previous application history.

Accurate Status

Inaccurate eligibility statuses can cause serious issues for reimbursements and compliance. Instantly distinguish application type and eligibility (i.e. SNAP, foster child, income) determined in accordance to USDA guidelines. Automatic selection of requests for verification, and easy tracing of the applications through the process will support complying with USDA requirements.

Application Processing

Handwritten applications and paper processing often leads to errors and requires excess work. Automated processing leads to greater process efficiency and enhanced audit readiness.
