The Student Emergency Fund (SEF) provides limited, one time, financial assistance when you 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 loss of job, reoccurring rent/utilities, larger medical expenses, etc. will be referred to the Financial Aid Office for a more in-depth review of possible funding options.
Fund Eligibility
