The Student Emergency Assistance Grant (SEAG) is a funding opportunity intended to provide monetary assistance to students experiencing unforeseen emergencies or situations that affect their ability to attend classes. The application process is a low-barrier process that involves meeting with staff from the Career & Community Services center to complete an application and review opportunities for referrals to services.
The Community Resource Manager will help identify any additional barriers and offer support. Whether it is by finding additional campus resources or sending referrals to community partners, our goal is to diminish barriers that could derail your education.
