Morton College to Launch Student Emergency Fund Program

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Education

Morton College has additional resources to help students weather financial emergencies. Students can apply for small grants to help cover expenses just beyond their means, which allows them to quickly return focus to their academic pursuits. The Student Emergency Funds (SEF) program at Morton College is supported by the new partnership with Follett Higher Education Group that manages the College’s Bookstore and has guaranteed revenue provision. One of the ways Morton College will use this revenue is to fund the new Student Emergency Funds program. The program is open to students who are currently enrolled, have no code of conduct record and show a financial hardship that can prevent them from continuing their education. Some of the covered expenses are:

• Tuition and fees

• Replacement of books and supplies lost due to theft, fire or flood

• Recommended or required services important to student success, such as diagnostic testing for accessibility resources

• Purchasing winter clothing or suit for job interview

• Money for groceries, rent or transportation
