What Are Emergency Funds?
Emergency Funds are a one-time award to assist students with unforeseen expenses that may cause a student to withdraw from school. Emergency Funds can be used once per academic quarter. Awards vary depending on student need and resources available.
Awards are available for costs associated with:
- Family/Household Emergencies
- Other related challenges that will prevent academic progress or completion
Note: Tuition, books, and fees may also qualify if they would cause a student to withdraw
Our program’s purpose is to support South Seattle College students through unexpected financial circumstances so that our students will be able to focus on graduating. Our process involves equity to each student’s application. The intention of emergency funds are to help relieve some financial hardship that would prevent a student’s academic success.
Must be a current South Seattle College student. Apply at the link below:
