Financial Insecurity

One of the most common obstacles to student success is financial insecurity. Students facing unanticipated financial hardships that impact their educational experience and cannot be met through Financial Aid are encouraged to submit an application to the Emergency Angel Fund. Once received, the Student Resources Coordinator will work with the student to identify potential resources including micro-grants, book rentals, and emergency funds.
