Emergency Funding


We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing economic crisis has strained many students and their families. Unfortunately, emergency funding from SCC will not have the full capacity to address all financial needs that students are facing. Emergency funds is a pool of money that students can apply for to address an immediate unforeseen or imminent financial hardship that will affect their ability to remain in school. The emergency funds is not intended to provide a supplemental income and funding is limited to 2 x per academic year. Please note that applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and the committee may not be able to cover the entire cost requested.  


How to Get Started

1. First sign up (first time logging in) or sign-in by using an email address and creating a password on the Emergency Funds application page.

2. After completing your general profile, make sure to fill out the application for Emergency Funds (look for "Seattle Central College Emergency Funds - Central Students ONLY" in the list of opportunities).

3. Please attach supporting documentation for the expenses you need help with.

4. Completed applications will be reviewed, and applicants will be contacted by Student Support Programs.



While the funding committee is unable to provide rental assistance at this time, we are passing along community resources that may be helpful.


King County has created a new program to assist households who have been unable to meet rent obligations and are at risk for eviction due to COVID. More info about the King County Eviction Prevention and Rental Assistance Program can be found HERE.
