Spartan Aid

Spartan Aid services assist students to evaluate their financial and personal situation to identify and resolve any non-academic barriers to college success. For example, an independent student with dependent children who works at a low-wage job may find it difficult or impossible to pay all of her/his bills. Spartan Aid staff may help that student to identify his/her eligibility for SNAP (food stamps) or other benefits available through college, state, or federal sources. Securing SNAP benefits may allow a student to feed his/her family and release needed funds for other expenses, allowing that student to stay in school to finish a degree. Small no-interest loans are available for textbooks and/or emergencies. Spartan Aid staff is knowledgeable about a variety of college and community resources and will refer and/or assist students with the process of applying for these services online or in person.
