Emergency Assistance Fund
Disclaimer: Cuyamaca College has exhausted the funding provided by the CARES Act. All fall semester applicants have been placed on a waitlist until more funding becomes available.
To those who have already applied for the fall 2020 semester but have not yet been paid: You will not be disqualified and you will not lose your place in line; you will be disbursed your emergency funds as more funding becomes available.
To those who would like to apply: You are still welcome to do so using the link below, however please note that your application will be placed on a waitlist until more funding becomes available.
The Emergency Assistance Fund is meant to assist students facing financial emergencies. Students can receive up to $500 dollars for housing/utility assistance, emergency auto repair, bus passes, and so much more. If you're unsure if you can receive funds for your situation, please don't hesitate to ask.
Students of all residency statuses are eligible to apply for Emergency Assistance Funds if they have been affected by COVID-19 in any away. Students may apply each semester they are enrolled in at least one unit and must check the application box that indicates their request is in some way related to COVID-19 (clicking the box indicates the student may have experienced a reduction in work hours, loss of a job, incurred costs associated with online learning or daily living, need to purchase technology to success in online course work, need assistance with utility costs or room and board, etc.)
Where to Start
To apply for financial assistance, please fill out the application for emergency funds and register with BankMobile if you are not registered already. Registering is necessary to receive emergency funds as well as financial aid. If your application is approved, funds will be distributed shortly afterward. Contact Kaylin Rosal at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
