Hsc Students Standing Arm In Arm

HSC students are not immune to the challenges that are happening in the world today. Our Student Emergency Fund has been established to assist with unplanned needs such as loss of income, medical bills, food, insecurity, auto emergencies, etc.

Student Emergency Fund

The Student Emergency Fund (SEF) is a critical part of the support system that HSC provides our enrolled students to continue their education despite unforeseen circumstances.

SEF funds are allocated to those experiencing temporary financial hardships who have exhausted all other financial assistance options from the Institution. All SEF requests are reviewed by the Office of Care and Civility in collaboration with the Office of Financial Aid.

In addition to providing direct financial assistance to students, the SEF is used to purchase food and personal items (toothpaste, deodorant, soap, etc) for our HSC Food Pantry that can be accessed by all HSC students.

The health and wellbeing of our students is our number one priority at HSC. We are committed to providing the resources and support services necessary to meet their needs.
