Application for Basic Needs Support & the Student Emergency Fund

UPDATE: EMERGENCY FUNDS WILL NOT BE DISBURSED BETWEEN DEC 19, 2021 AND JAN 3, 2022.

DUE TO THE VERY HIGH VOLUME OF REQUESTS YOU MAY BE CONTACTED IN APPROXIMATELY 1-2 WEEKS REGARDING THE STATUS OF YOUR REQUEST AFTER SUBMISSION.

Submit a Basic Needs Support Request for assistance with getting connected to campus and community resources, such as the emergency fund, school supplies, government assistance programs, and more. A member of the Basic Needs Team will reach out to chat through any of the resources or information you've requested.

If you are requesting emergency funds, make sure that you have reviewed the resources listed on the Basic Needs website. Please be sure to read the eligibility criteria prior to applying.

Additionally, if eligible, make sure you've completed your FAFSA or DREAM Act Application. In order to receive emergency funds your BankMobile account needs to be set up. If you need assistance with setting that up, please contact Cashier Services at 805-922-6966 ext. 3270. 

Awards range from $50 - $500. To ensure equitable distribution of emergency funds, students may only receive up to $500 in emergency funds per semester. All applications are assessed on a case-by-case basis.
