Student Emergency Fund

A catastrophic event should not be compounded by forcing a student to drop out or delay their studies. The Student Emergency Fund at MCCC assists students facing unforeseen, one-time emergency expenses that may disrupt their education, such as a home fire or theft. After tragedy strikes, the Student Emergency Fund helps ensure that a student still has what he or she needs to continue their coursework.

The number of students who can be served by the Student Emergency Fund is subject to the availability of funds. We need your help to seed and sustain this critical fund. Contribute today, and help a student when they are at their most vulnerable. 


  • Applicants must have a financial hardship resulting from an emergency, accident, or other unexpected critical incident.  
  • Applicants must be currently enrolled students. 
  • All other resources, including emergency loans through scholarships and student aid must have been considered and are insufficient, unavailable, or not available in a timely manner.

Students who are in need of emergency financial assistance with unexpected expenses that are essential to their continued academic success may petition Dr. Valerie Culler, director of financial aid at, for funds when they have exhausted all other resources.

This funding is not intended to replace or supplement existing financial aid and does not have to be repaid. Funds distributed do not generally exceed $500. If you are currently receiving financial aid, please be aware that receiving funding from the Emergency Fund may affect your future aid packages.
