Student Emergency Assistance Funds

Spring Quarter Applications open back up on April 22nd. All applications before then will be denied and responded to with resources.

The Student Emergency Assistance Funds pulls from two grants. The Student Emergency Assistance Grant (SEAG) is an emergency aid program to assist students experiencing short-term unforeseen emergencies or situations that affect their ability to attend classes; and the Supporting Students Experiencing Homelessness (SSEH).

Funding Eligibility Requirements:

  • Must be an enrolled BC student.
  • Student Emergency Assistance Funds cannot be used for tuition, tuition related debts, textbooks, or fees.
  • Each request for funding must be for a new emergency circumstance/situation unless informed otherwise.

It is with the understanding that due to limited available funding students who have not been
supported through the funds before will have priority over those who have previously received them. The funds are designed to be one-time assistance for an unforeseen circumstance that requires immediate support not a continually recurring situation.
