CARES Act Emergency Grants
The purpose of this funding is to assist students who have experienced unanticipated expenses as a result of the pandemic. The amount of HEERF funding that institutions receive is primarily based on the number of high-need students enrolled.
Student Emergency Fund Application Available
The Student Emergency Fund (SEF) provides limited, one-time financial assistance when students are unable to meet immediate, essential expenses because of a temporary emergency. Given the limited amount of funds, not all requests can be approved even though there may be a clear need for assistance. Situations that are longer-term or require more substantial funding—such as the loss of a job, reoccurring rent or utility payments, larger medical expenses, etc.—will be referred to the Financial Aid Office for a more in-depth review of possible funding options.
The Center for Academic Advising & Retention (CAAR), Running Start, and the School of Global Learning are offering only online advising appointments at this time. Appointments can be scheduled online:
