Get Help for Life's Unexpected Emergencies

Does an unanticipated financial emergency have you down? Are you considering dropping your classes?

ACC has a student emergency fund to help keep you on track to reach your academic and career goals.

The Student Emergency Fund can help you with unanticipated financial emergencies caused by:

  • Housing and living expenses
  • Car repairs or transportation issues
  • Childcare
  • Family emergencies
  • Natural disasters
  • Unanticipated loss of employment

If you are currently enrolled in an academic, credit-only program at Austin Community College, you are eligible to apply for emergency aid. Unsure if you qualify for assistance? Call 512-223-7872.
