Services for Students with Disabilities

Students may experience an emergency situation or one-time, unusual, unforeseen expense while in school. The University offers several types of assistance for students in such special circumstances.

NOTE: Emergency funding may impact previously awarded aid, so it is important to coordinate with the Office of Financial Aid. Students are also encouraged to contact the student affairs office in their respective school or college.

Situations that warrant funding may include:

  • Medical, dental or mental health emergencies for the student
  • Major accidents and events such as fire and natural disasters
  • Expenses related to the death of an immediate family member

The table below provides information regarding the availability of emergency funding from a variety of sources.
