Making a difference in a student’s life

We are aware that sometimes in life, unexpected crises arise. The Dennis McDonald Student Emergency Loan Fund is designed to assist students with short-term emergencies such as medications, fire loss, emergency medical costs, and emergency travel expenses. A review committee looks at every request and makes a determination regarding application approval or denial. Students can borrow up to $500 towards an emergency. Please plan to submit any documentation along with your request to help expedite matters (i.e., a bill or invoice, a letter of eviction, etc.) We work with each student on repayment terms that are flexible and fit each individual’s financial circumstance. There is a five business day turnaround on review and disbursement of funds, however, in certain emergency cases, the College will work with students on a case by case basis if funds are needed sooner.

We understand it is not always easy to ask for help. Students should reach out to the Counseling Center if they find these challenges overwhelming or difficult to navigate on their own.
