Emergency Funding

Emergency Funding Application Update

The application for Winter Quarter 2022 will open on December 7, 2021.

Winter Quarter disbursements will start on January 7, 2022. Students who have been approved for tuition assistance and have given Shoreline electronic permission to pay tuition charges, will be held in classes until payment has been applied. Any residual funds not used for tuition will go out starting January 7, 2022.

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.

Emergency aid is funded through the following sources: the Department of Education CARES Act for COVID-19 related student emergencies, CRRSAA: Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund, ARP: American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, the Shoreline Community College Foundation, and United Way of King County. Priority will be given to students with exceptional need. Exceptional need will be determined based on the Emergency Application form:

  • Need determined by the Department of Education Guidance as being Pell Grant eligible as determined by current FAFSA
  • Need determined by current State of Washington Median Family Income (MFI) up to 65% MFI. Must fill out the Emergency Aid application
  • Need determined by the College with previously established financial hardships and/or Emergency Aid application

Funding may be available for:

  • tuition and fees
  • rent and housing expenses
  • utilities (internet, phone, electric bills, etc.)
  • grocery
  • transportation
  • healthcare
  • technology needs
  • other bills

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.
