Student Assistance Program

The road to your academic goals is not always as smooth as we’d like it to be. Whether you've hit a pothole or a fallen bridge, we’re here to give you the resources to overcome any hazard and reach your destination.

Student Assistance Program


Crisis assistance

If you find yourself needing a meal to get you through the day, in need of a safe place to stay for the night or you are experiencing an unsafe relationship, we can help connect you with local resources.

Navigating assistance programs

Do you need help determining if you’re eligible for government assistance, gathering materials to apply and ensuring a quick and simple application process? If so, we have a large library of resources to help you navigate the process and connect you to additional support.

Program verification

We don’t just help you enroll in assistance programs, but also support you along the way, including  verifying attendance and progress for certain programs.

Advocacy services

Do you find yourself in a situation where you have to choose between your education and something else? Are you feeling overwhelmed by a responsibility or burden? We’re ready to empower and help teach you the skills to advocate for yourself.
