Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible to apply for financial support?

Any currently enrolled, domestic or international undergraduate student is eligible to apply and be considered for financial support.

How do I determine which source of funding (Residential College Accessibility Funding, Access and Opportunity Portal or Emergency Funding) to apply for?

The Residential College Accessibility Funding, the Access and Opportunity Portal, and Emergency Funding each fund different things. Consult this list for more specific examples of items that each funding source will consider.

What if I need funding for something that is not listed?

If you are requesting non-emergency funding for something that is not listed, submit your funding request to the Access and Opportunity Portal. All true urgent, emergency requests, in which a undergraduate student is actively in crisis, should be directed to the Dean of Undergraduates.

Will I receive the entire amount of funding that I request?

Undergraduate students could receive 100% of their request, a partial amount, or none of their request.

I don’t currently live on campus. Am I still eligible to apply for Residential College Accessibility Funding?

Yes. Residency in the residential college is not a requirement to apply for and to receive funding.

I have a question about the application process. How can I get answers?

Questions related to the Access and Opportunity Portal should be e-mailed with the subject line of AOP Request Question. Questions related to the Residential College Accessibility Funds should be directed to your residential college’s Magister.

Is there a limit to the number of times that I can request support from the Access and Opportunity Portal?

No, there is no limit to the number of requests that a undergraduate student can make to the portal. It is important to note that funds are limited and the goal of the Access and Opportunity Portal is to provide support to as many students as possible. As a result, all funding decisions are final.
