The Ross and Carol Nese College of Nursing recognizes that students may experience unforeseen financial emergencies. If you are in need of short-term financial assistance, please submit an application for funding support from the College’s emergency funds:
In rare cases, awards from these funds may impact the amount of aid that a student receives from other sources – most often by reducing the amount of student or parent educational loans. However, this only occurs if a student is already receiving financial aid up to their total cost of attendance for the semester awarded.
Penn State established a Student Emergency Fund to help meet the immediate needs of students experiencing unforeseen financial emergencies and crisis situations. More information about Penn State’s COVID-19 resources can be found using the links below:
