Emergency Funding

The purpose of the Emergency Fund Request is to provide immediate support for students needing emergency assistance with expenses, such as food, housing, transportation, and educational needs. This funding cannot be used towards tuition. For 2022-2023, students can only be awarded up to $1000* per academic year. Applicants will be considered for SFS emergency funding, but also referred to additional support as needed.

*Some exceptions may apply.

When determining eligibility, the following will be considered:

  • Does the student have a FAFSA/WASFA on file?
  • Has the student utilized all available student loans?
  • Does the student have unmet need?
  • Is the student meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)?
  • Does the student have an EFC of $15,000 or less?
  • Is the student currently enrolled in at least 3 credits

Do you or someone you know need additional support?

The Student Care Network can help when you have a concern about a student’s well-being, behavior, academic performance, or access to financial, food, or housing assistance.

Have your financial circumstances changed?

If the FAFSA or WASFA does not accurately reflect your and/or your family’s current financial situation or budget expenses, a special circumstance appeal may apply to you.
