STUDENT EMERGENCY NEEDS FUND
Eligible Financial Emergency Expenses
Each student’s situation is different. Financial emergency is described as an unforeseen expense that, if not resolved quickly, could impact the student’s ability to attend class or remain enrolled at Mercy College. Applicants for this funding will need to submit supporting documentation of the expense.
Eligible emergency expenses may include public transportation/bus pass, personal automobile expense, gas, child care, housing/rent, utilities, food, and medical/dental expenses.
Ineligible expenses include tuition, fees, books, entertainment expenses, legal fees, tobacco, and alcohol.
Eligible students who wish to apply for Student Emergency Funds should schedule a meeting with Diane Haskins at 515-635-1128 or firstname.lastname@example.org, to ensure that the application is completed accurately and appropriate supporting documentation is submitted.
You may also schedule a meeting by stopping by the Norkaitis Student Success Center in the Academic Center for Excellence.
