JTCC Student Emergency Fund
Due to the COVID-19 crisis and the volume of student requests, response times may be longer than our normal processes. Please be assured that we are processing requests as quickly as possible and funds will be awarded as they are available.
The Emergency Fund assists Tyler students who are facing a short-term financial emergency that could hinder successful academic progression. The fund can assist students with expenses resulting from an unexpected emergency, event or circumstance. The Emergency Fund is not intended to provide ongoing relief of recurring or routine expenses.
Examples of types of expenses that could qualify for Emergency Fund support:
- Homelessness or sudden loss of housing
- Food insecurity
- Transportation expenses
- Utility expenses
- Replacement of personal items due to theft, fire or natural disaster
- Tuition or academic materials
Who can Apply
Any full- or part-time program-placed Tyler student may apply for Emergency Fund assistance. Students who receive Emergency Fund awards are not obligated to repay the award.
Size of Awards
A student may apply multiple times within 365 days for a maximum award of $500 per student per 365-day period.
How to Apply
Students can access the emergency fund in a number of ways:
- Referral by faculty or staff member
- Referral by Tyler’s Care Team
Students can apply to the Emergency Fund online.
The Dean of Students Office will make every effort to contact the student about his/her application request within two business days.
