Emergency Funding Assistance

Student Emergency Services
Emergency Funding

When a student is faced with the financial effects of an emergency and has exhausted all other means of assistance, a staff member can assist in identifying potential sources of emergency funds.

Emergency funding assistance is provided to a student one time during his or her academic career at Texas State and funds are limited to $100-500 per student, depending on the funding source.

We will respond to requests in 1-3 days. Once funding is approved and in order to make sure the funds are available quickly, the student should make sure that the direct deposit information is accurate and up-to-date. Go to the "Student Payment Portal & E-Refunds" link on the Student Business Services webpage. 

Qualifications for Funding

  • Currently enrolled or was enrolled in the previous long (fall or spring) semester as an undergraduate or graduate, but did not graduate.

  • Can provide official documentation about both the emergency (unforeseen) event and the subsequent financial need.
