Student Emergency Fund

The Student Emergency Fund is administered by the Dean of Students Office, working in tangent with the Financial Aid department of the Student Service Center. The fund was developed in 2005 to assist students who are experiencing financial hardship with the expenses of life as a college student. The fund is also used to assist students who experience an unplanned expense, such as having to return home for a family emergency. Financial assistance given to students through the student emergency fund is not a loan.
