Emergency Financial Assistance

The Student Advocacy Center hopes to help current students who are struggling due to financial emergency or the cost of mental health care. 

The Student Emergency Fund   may be a resource for students at risk of dropping out of college due to an unexpected financial emergency.  This fund cannot assist with university expenses such as tuition, a past due balance with the university, or student health insurance.  

The Mental Health Care Grant helps to alleviate the stress of mental health related medical bill debts and expenses accrued since January 2024. 


Students inquiring about alternate financial aid options (such as loans) are encouraged to contact BuckeyeLink directly.  

If you are an active F-1 or J-1 international student, please contact the Office of International Affairs at for grant information through the Office of International Affairs.
