Emergency Financial and Housing Assistance
Cal State LA offers financial and housing assistance to students who are facing an emergency situation or crisis. This would include serious, unexpected circumstances beyond the student’s control (e.g., death in family, accident, fire, sudden loss of housing or job, medical crisis, etc.), which directly affect the student's ability to continue and be successful in school.
Cal State LA Emergency Grant
Cal State LA's Emergency Grant Program allows for students who are experiencing a financial crisis due to serious, unexpected circumstances beyond their control to apply for up to $500 this school year in emergency grant funding. Funding for emergency grants is limited so priority will be given to students in the greatest need. Applicants are required to provide documentation/verification of their emergency circumstances. A review of applicants' financial aid awards may be part of exploring resources available to applicants and determining equitable response to the applications received.
Students must be currently enrolled in at least 3 units, and be matriculated in a bachelor’s or graduate degree program, or in a credential program, to be eligible to apply.
