In order to be successful in the classroom, your needs must be met outside of the classroom. Single Stop is an online screening tool that can estimate—in minutes—what local resources might be available to you. Germanna is dedicated to helping you find and secure the right resources to keep you focused on your academic goals.

There are two ways to complete a Single Stop Screening: 

1. Complete an assisted screening

During an assisted screening, a Germanna single Stop specialist will complete the screening with you. Upon completing the screening,  the specialist will discuss with you which resources you may be eligible for and how to apply for them.

2. Complete the online screening tool

After completing an independent screening, a Germanna Single Stop specialist will contact you to schedule a follow up appointment to discuss which resources you may be eligible for and how to apply for them.

Student FAQ's

Even before the coronavirus pandemic disrupted the economy, about one-third of VCCS students reported food insecurity.


Students at Germanna Community College told us that….

  • 48% experienced at least one form of basic needs insecurity, including
  • 29% who experienced food insecurity in the prior 30 days,
  • 38% who experienced housing insecurity in the previous year, and
  • 10% who experienced homelessness in the previous year.

Research from SCHEV estimates that nearly 25% of VCCS students would be eligible for SNAP, but only a tiny fraction of them received SNAP benefits.
