Emergency Funding

Fall Quarter Pandemic Assistance Emergency Aid Application Opens August 22

Fall Quarter 2022 is the last quarter that Federal COVID Pandemic Assistance will be available for Shoreline students. Students cannot submit applications before August 22nd for Fall Quarter. If an application is submitted before August 22nd, it will not be considered for funding. There is a limited balance remaining. Not all applicants who meet exceptional need guidelines will receive funding. Students may request up to $2,298.00 for assistance for tuition, books, technology, housing, food, child-care, healthcare, or transportation expenses due to COVID.

Students requesting tuition assistance for Fall Quarter 2022 should indicate on the application if they would like Shoreline to make payment on their tuition and fees. With electronic permission, Shoreline will place a tuition hold on their unpaid balance until emergency aid can pay for their tuition and fees.

Students requesting emergency aid for other expenses will receive their funds through Bankmobile. Fall Quarter disbursement will begin on September 29th, 2022, through the student’s chosen Bankmobile disbursement method. Students must have a United States address to receive a Bankmobile disbursement.

Shoreline has funds available to support our students and ensure learning continues during the COVID-19 pandemic. To qualify for these funds, you must either be enrolled or intend to enroll in credit courses at Shoreline Community College, and you are experiencing emergency or exceptional need which has impacted your ability to pay for your financial and educational obligations.
