Emergency Assistance

Times are tough. We're here to help.

We understand that unforeseen hardships during difficult times can add to financial strain. If you're a student in need of emergency funding due to the COVID-19 pandemic or other unexpected circumstances, extra support may be available to help you get through.

You can apply for emergency funds to help pay for your medical bills, rent, utilities, and other necessities. Please note that support will first be distributed to those students who have the most dire needs.

If you need other support, contact us, and we'll do our best to connect you with the resources you need.
