  • Maintain a GPA of 2.0 or higher and a 50% completion rate.
  • Be currently enrolled in at least 6 credits

What to expect after you submit a request:

After submitting a request, our staff will reach out via your ACC email address for further clarification or documentation. It’s important to note that not all funds can be directly distributed to students; some may be used to pay bills on your behalf. While we strive to assist with unexpected expenses, please be aware that the Student Emergency Fund may not cover the entire request.

NOTE: Please keep in mind that you are not eligible for emergency funds if:

  • You have received emergency funds within the past 12 months. 
  • You have received an ARP disbursement ($1200) during the 2023 spring semester.

Your success is our priority, and we are here to support you through life’s unexpected challenges.
