Financial support for the unforeseen
We understand that the COVID-19 crisis has significant financial impacts. If you are experiencing a financial emergency, you can request assistance through the Student Emergency Fund.
The Student Emergency Fund is a different resource than the one-time funds made available to the university through the CARES Act. The CARES Act funds are comprised of a Direct Payment to eligible students as well as Supplemental Funds available to eligible students with additional critical financial needs as a result of the disruption.
The Student Emergency Fund assists Worcester State University students by providing limited emergency financial support when they need assistance with unexpected, unforeseen and unavoidable emergency circumstances that jeopardize their ability to successfully continue in school.
This funding is not intended to reimburse for expenses that have already been paid, or to replace or supplement existing financial aid. Decisions regarding amount and disbursement of funds are made on a case-by-case basis. Awards are not considered loans and do not require repayment. Some funds may be considered income and are therefore subject to federal taxes.
Examples of expenses considered for funding include but are not limited to:
