As a college student these days, finding the resources to purchase a much needed tablet or cell phone and internet services to pair with one of those devices can be challenging when finances are limited. But, for students attending Del Mar College (DMC) who receive a Pell Grant or potential students who are Pell Grant-eligible, the opportunity to get these resources free will be available during the College’s Holiday Registration Event scheduled next Wednesday, Dec. 6, with services hours extended to 7 p.m.

DMC Financial Aid Services has partnered with Austin-based Go For Results! LLC (G4R) to provide eligible individuals with one of the two devices and free one-year internet services.

Attending college right now is a  challenge as general living expenses continue to rise, including rent, food and other costs that are just part of everyday life for our students. When you add the costs of a device such a as a tablet or cell phone and internet services needed to stay connected, those expenses can mean the difference between keeping your gas tank filled or buying enough groceries each month for some of our students. We’re very thankful that Go For Results has partnered with Del Mar College to provide these resources to current and potential students who qualify for these necessary tools that are now so much a part of our lives, including academic success.

G4R representatives will be on-hand at all three campuses––Heritage, Windward and Oso Creek––during in-person registration Dec.6 to check individuals’ eligibility on-the-spot and hand directly to them one of the two devices after qualifying. Tables will be set up in the buildings where other registration day services will be conducted as follows:

Additionally, current and potential students can sign-up through G4R’s representatives for free “health boxes” that will be delivered monthly to their doorstep. The health boxes include COVID-19 antigen home tests, dental essentials, personal care items and other products as the shipments evolve. They’re also fully covered by Medicare and Medicaid, and more than one box can be delivered to qualifying households.

For G4R representatives to process individuals’ eligibility, current and potential students need to provide the following:

·      valid identification, including last four digits of their Social Security Number,
