Student Emergency Assistance Program
The Student Emergency Assistance Program provides one-time financial assistance to currently enrolled students who are experiencing acute financial distress and meet the program's eligibility requirements. Monetary support for the program is provided in part by the Carroll and Milton Petrie Foundation Emergency Fund.
The Student Emergency Assistance Program is designed to address urgent needs and cannot be used to cover tuition. Other ineligible expenses include reimbursements, non-emergency travel, future non-urgent expenses, and on-campus housing. Student grant recipients are expected to work with Student Support staff or outside services to take steps toward long-term stability.
The program can assist students contending with emergencies such as:
- Fire in living quarters
- Temporary loss of job
- Medical, vision, dental expenses
- Theft of personal property
- Travel for death/illness of family member
Students may be eligible for assistance if:
- They are enrolled for the current term
- They are in good academic standing
- They are experiencing an emergency
Students who need emergency financial assistance and meet the eligibility requirements, can complete this application. Once you submit your application, you may be asked to attend a meeting with a Student Success staff member and/or submit more detailed documentation regarding your request.
Please note: Students experiencing extreme hardship are prioritized for support and applications are processed on a rolling basis. Submitting an application does not guarantee funding.
