College Reach Out Program (CROP)

Helping More Students Seek Higher Education

The College Reach-Out Program (CROP) is a statewide program established in 1983, which is state funded through the Florida Department of Education that is designed to increase the number of students who enter and successfully complete a post-secondary education.

The program's primary objective is to strengthen the educational goals and preparation of low-income and academically disadvantaged students in grades 6 through 12, representing various cultural backgrounds, who "otherwise would be unlikely to seek admissions to a community college, state university or post-secondary institution without special support and recruitment efforts." The HCC CROP Office is located on our Brandon Campus.
