Emergency Funding

Financial assistance is available to Shoreline Community College students who are dealing with financial hardship resulting from an emergency, accident, or other unexpected critical incident that has a direct impact on their academic success at Shoreline.

Emergency aid is funded through United Way of King County and the Shoreline Community College Foundation.

Types of expenses covered:

  • groceries
  • transportation and gas
  • healthcare
  • childcare
  • utilities (internet, phone, electric bills, etc.)

Limited support for tuition, tuition-related fees, and required educational materials is available.

If approved for United Way of King County assistance, funds will be disbursed to the student through BankMobile. Students must have a United States address in order to receive a BankMobile disbursement.

If approved for Shoreline Community College Foundation funding, funds will be paid directly to the service provider or in the form of a gift card for groceries and gas.

Funding is dependent on grant eligibility requirements and availability. Funding is not guaranteed. Please check out Shoreline's other sources of funding for more options.
