The Campus Cares program is designed to render assistance to currently enrolled Stanislaus State students who are experiencing a personal crisis or an emergency situation.

How it Works

Applications are temporarily paused, please check back on May 23, 2022, for an update.

The California Emergency Assistance Grant is designed to provide aid to currently enrolled students experiencing an emergency situation. Qualified students may apply for one-time funds to help cover these costs. These funds are limited and may run out. Emergency funding is not intended to provide ongoing relief for recurring expenses, and these awards are not loans that students are expected to repay. The value of the award will range in response to student needs and the availability of funding.

Additional Information

These awards are coordinated with Financial Aid and may cause a student to be over-awarded, requiring a Cost of Attendance appeal or reduction in other aid. Please visit our Professional Judgement webpage for additional information on Cost of Attendance appeals and other Professional Judgement applications.
