New College of Florida offers emergency funding options to students in emergency and crisis situations. When a student decides to apply for funding, the student will first meet with the Case Manager or another member of the New College Emergency Fund Committee. After the initial meeting and the student submits their application, the New College Emergency Fund Committee will meet to review and determine the amount of funding, if approved. After the committee meeting, the student will be notified in an in-person meeting. Based on the student’s self-disclosed financial crisis, the Case Manager or another appropriate member of the Student Support Team and/or New College Emergency Fund Committee will guide the student through the process as well as the emergency or crisis situation. Requests for emergency assistance are considered on the basis of what is recognized as an emergency by the committee. As such, the New College Emergency Fund Committee considers each request separately. The fund is sustained by monetary contributions.
