Emergency Student Funding Request

Student Emergency Funds are available for students experiencing financial emergencies related to housing, food, health care, and materials required for classes in the current online instruction environment. (This is not an exhaustive list.) These Emergency Funds are available thanks to generous donations from donors.

Schedule an Appointment Online

Request an appointment with a Student Care Case manager. Appointments can take up to 2 days to confirm; critical, non-medical needs will be prioritized above all other appointments. If you need immediate assistance, please give us a call at 509-335-5757 instead. For medical care, contact Cougar Health Services.

Concerned About a Student?

Submit a Student Care Network Referral regarding a student’s emotional or psychological well-being, physical health, or academic performance. When students are in distress, early intervention can make a big difference in outcomes.
