Emergency Aid Application
Starting Fall 2021, the Shasta College Financial Aid Office will accept applications for emergency aid, funded by Federal COVID stimulus funds.
In Fall 2021, the eligibility criteria for these funds are that a student must be enrolled in at least 3 units in Fall 2021 and must NOT have already received an emergency student aid grant funded by COVID stimulus funds. These grants appear on a student's 2021-22 Financial Aid award letter/My Awards as "COV2S - CRRSAA" or "COVD3 - APR."
Applications will be reviewed weekly and students will receive confirmation of their application, and notification when their application has been reviewed.
