In instances where students may need assistance with bills due to sudden, extenuating circumstances, funds may be available in the form of an emergency loan. Students interested in emergency loans may receive up to $1,500 to help with the costs that include rent, transportation, food, and other expenses associated with attending college during the academic year. Emergency loans are for non-academic expenses and cannot be used to purchase textbooks or other things covered by financial aid.
- Be a registered Reynolds Community College student during the semester in which funds would be applied
- Be eligible for financial aid
- Provide documentation of the emergency
Emergency loan requests are reviewed and discussed on a case-by-case basis. While emergency funds are not guaranteed, we make every effort to help support student needs. Emergency loans come from Foundation funds, but must be repaid through expected financial aid refunds.
