Student Crisis Fund assistance is only provided to cases in which a student has no alternative source of funds. Any currently enrolled student may apply; repayment of the financial assistance is not required. Requests for money to repay personal loans, educational travel, tuition payments or to pay for fines or credit cards are not considered "unanticipated emergencies."
