Keystone Education Yields Success (KEYS) helps students with financial need complete their college education. We assist students who receive Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) support. Students enrolled in the program have the opportunity to meet regularly with program staff who will help them meet their educational goals.

Students are connected with appropriate support services both in and outside the College. Academic performance is monitored, and students are referred to needed services such as tutoring, advising, and career and personal counseling. In addition, KEYS can assist students in accessing benefits and services through the County Assistance Office and other community agencies.
