Emergency Financial Assistance

Our office is currently able to provide emergency financial assistance to students in need.  


NEW:  Mental Healthcare Financial Assistance

These funds, provided through the government CARES grant, can provide financial assistance to students experiencing a financial barrier to seeking mental health treatment, or who are struggling financially as a result of recent mental health care costs.    You can read more and apply here. 


The Student Emergency Fund

The Student Emergency Fund provides emergency financial assistance to students who may otherwise be at risk of dropping out of college due to an unexpected financial emergency.  

If you, or a student you know, are experiencing an unplanned expense, we may have emergency funding available (resources are limited).  Our office is accepting applications and may award up to $1,000 to eligible students.   Please read more and apply here.  


*Students may only receive funding once per academic year.










Information submitted in applications will be used to determine eligibility.  It may be shared with other university offices that have a need to know for purposes of reviewing/processing this request, and/or to comply with university policy or law.
