Student Emergency Assistance Program (SEAP)

Student Emergency Assistance Program

The Foundation is collaborating with Student Aid and Scholarships to support the CARES Act funding Emergency Aid grant. Students should contact caresfunds@cptc.edu for questions about eligibility for CARES Act funding for fall quarter. More information about CARES Act funded Emergency Aid can be found at: https://www.cptc.edu/cares-act

Please note, the regular Student Emergency Assistance Program funding is only available to full-time students who are not eligible for CARES Act funding for Fall quarter. Students should apply for the CARES Act funding first before being referred to the CPTC Foundation for the Student Emergency Assistance Program (SEAP).  Please apply for the CARES Act funding by emailing caresfund@cptc.edu to determine if you are eligible.

When funding is available, emergency assistance through the Student Emergency Assistance Program may help students meet emergency financial needs that would prevent students from continuing their education. The Student Emergency Assistance Program is coordinated through the CPTC Foundation. Please contact Janet Holm at Janet.Holm@cptc.edu if you have questions.

Emergency funds have been donated to the Student Emergency Assistance Program by individuals and organizations interested in breaking down barriers to student success. Funding is available on a first come, first served basis each quarter. Advising and Counseling is prepared to assist students in identifying community resources that may be able to provide additional assistance. http://cptc.edu/advising
