Student Emergency Funds

The Student Emergency Fund (SEF) provides limited emergency financial assistance to currently enrolled Xavier University students who are unable to meet immediate, essential expenses because of temporary hardship related to an unexpected situation. The fund is designated to offset a short-term financial need and is not intended to replace or supplement financial aid. Funds are awarded as a grant, and unlike a loan, do not need to be repaid. Funds may count as income and may be subject to federal and/or state taxes.

To request Student Emergency Funds, fill out this application form and submit it to the Division of Student Affairs in GSC 300.
