Emergency Funds

Winston-Salem State University Emergency Grant and Loans

Winston-Salem State University provides limited emergency loans to help students through unexpected financial crises, such as illness, family job loss, and delays in other types of funding, such as financial aid, paycheck or military benefits. Such an unforeseen expense that, if not resolved quickly, could lead to the student’s departure from the institution and/or loss of momentum toward completion.  Once approved emergency funds will be disbursed 2-3 business days.

Emergency funds can only be accessed one time during the total enrollment of a student at Winston-Salem State University.

All students must complete an in-person interview prior to the awarding of any emergency funds.  The conversation must take place prior to submitting any application for emergency funds.
