The purpose of the Student Emergency Fund is to assist a student experiencing a short-term emergency. The fund was created through donations from employees of the College. Emergency needs include medications, fire loss, emergency medical/dental cost, emergency travel, and any other unexpected, non-tuition-related needs. The Student Emergency Fund is a one time, interest-free loan program with an expectation that the recipient will re-pay the loan when able. Inability to re-pay should not stop a student from applying.
