Emergency Funding

Emergency Funding Requests

Emergency Funding Requests should be made to the Dean of Undergraduates office for those financial needs which require urgent, immediate attention and in which the undergraduate student requesting support is actively in crisis. Because these requests will be reviewed immediately upon receipt, only those requests requiring same day resolution will be considered. Although not an exhaustive list, requests that could be considered to be an emergency and eligible for funding include:

  • Request for rent needed immediately due to impending eviction
  • Funding for co-pays or upfront costs associated with emergency surgery

Please review the Access and Opportunity Portal and the Residential College Accessibility Fund information PRIOR to contacting DOU to make a request for Emergency Funding to insure that you are requesting the correct type of support. The type of requests considered to be Emergency Funding are very narrow in scope as the EFR is designed to address the most urgent and serious financial concerns for undergraduate students.
