A Low Income student is any student whose adjusted gross income (AGI) or their parent(s) AGI does not exceed 150 percent of an amount equal to the poverty level set by the U.S. Census thresholds. CSUMB uses these thresholds defined by the U.S. Department of Education TRIO Programs. Student AGI is used for independent students; parent AGI is used for dependent students.
