New! Mental Health Fund
Because mental health care is variably covered by insurance, the expense of care can be a barrier for students seeking treatment. A new fund has been established to award students financial aid grants of up to $500.00 per semester to pay for mental health care not covered by insurance. The $500.00 award may be renewed with documentation from the student’s external mental health care provider that the previous funds were used for services and that there is a need for continuing care.
