Financial Aid Available to Harvey-Impacted Students

Many students continue to be impacted by the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey, and the university is committed to supporting all those impacted.

The Office of Financial Aid is currently helping affected students and their families who experienced dramatic changes to their financial status. Financial assistance is available for students and families who, as a result of Hurricane Harvey, experienced financial hardship, such as loss of income or additional expenses due to loss or damage to property from the storm.

To be considered for financial assistance, complete the Harvey Special Circumstance Appeal form. The deadline to submit your form is April 2, 2018. You must have completed a 2017-18 FAFSA in order to appeal for Harvey-related special circumstances.

If you have questions or need assistance, please contact us by emailing or visiting our offices on the third floor of the Student Services Building (SSB).

Additional resources for impacted students include:
