Emergency Funding

Summer Quarter Pandemic Assistance Emergency Aid Application Opens June 13

Students may request up to $2298.00 for assistance for tuition, books, technology, housing, food, child-care, healthcare, or transportation expenses due to COVID-related circumstances.

Students requesting tuition assistance for Summer 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. Summer Quarter disbursements will begin on July 5, 2022 through the student’s chosen Bankmobile disbursement method. Students must have a United States address to receive a Bankmobile disbursement.

Students may request emergency aid to pay past debts owed to the college by indicating on their application that they give Shoreline electronic permission to pay a past debt owed to Shoreline. In order for debts to be paid, the debt must have occurred during the declared pandemic, from March 2020 to the present date.

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.
