Impacted by a natural disaster?

Here's How to Stay in College & Keep Your Financial Aid Intact

September 25, 2018 by elease dillard

After being severely impacted by a natural disaster, you may be wondering about where you stand regarding college and your financial aid. Before you make any major decisions, keep reading…

Depending on your situation, you may have evacuated your home or experienced your lifestyle being highly impacted. What do you do now?

Last year, there was an effort by multiple colleges and universities such as New York University , Cornell University and Miami Dade College to help hurricane-impacted college students continue to attend college by providing options such as in-state tuition, a free semester of study, and more. 

At the time that I am writing this post, hurricane Florence is still hitting areas as I speak, so I presume any announcements regarding hurricane relief for college students will be made in the coming days or weeks. When I hear about it, I will let you know!

In the mean time, the Federal Student Aid—an office of the U.S. Department of Education—addresses common concerns about natural disasters including what to do if you need to transfer schools, what to do if some of your financial documentation was damaged in the storm, aid eligibility, and more.
