Emergency Financial Assistance for Students

Emergency Assistance provides support to hard-working students facing unforeseen financial hardships or financial emergencies so they have the resources they need to stay in school. Students must meet the following requirements to be eligible for assistance:

  • Cumulative 2.0 GPA or higher in a curriculum program
  • Enrolled in a minimum of six credit hours and attending classes during the semester in which funds are requested
  • Documentation of unforeseen financial hardship or financial emergency

NOTE: Applications are approved depending on availability of funding. Meeting the minimum qualifications does not guarantee approval of your application.

Anyone enrolled in a Workforce Continuing Education program who needs emergency assistance should email [email protected] for an application.
