Financial Services

Financial Services

Emergency fund
Students in need of short term financial assistance can submit a request to be eligible to receive emergency funding through the college's own emergency fund, and through other funds available to all university students. Emergency funds are meant to provide assistance to short-term, unforeseen financial needs (eg. housing, transportation, technology) - they are not meant to replace students' primary source of funding their education.

Note that international students can seek emergency funding via ISSS independently of this process.

Students can request emergency funds in two ways:

  1. Email One Stop at onestop@umn.edu 
  2. Notify your advisor of your need for financial assistance, and you will be provided with information to submit a request.
