Emergency Funding Assistance

CARE Center Services
Emergency Funding

When a student is faced with the financial effects of an emergency and has exhausted all other means of assistance, a staff member can assist in identifying potential sources of emergency funds.

Emergency funding assistance is provided to a student one time during his or her academic career at Texas State and funds are limited to $100-500 per student, depending on the funding source.

Once funding is approved and in order to make sure the funds are available quickly, the student should make sure that the direct deposit information is accurate and up-to-date. Go to the "Student Payment Portal & E-Refunds" link on the Student Business Services webpage. 

Qualifications for Funding
