FINANCIAL

The Student Emergency Assistance (SEA) Fund provides emergency financial assistance to currently-enrolled Harford Community College students who are facing a short-term financial emergency. The goal is to help current students remain in school. Awards are based on fund availability with the maximum award equalling $500 per student per academic year. Every attempt will be made to process the application within 48 hours. Awards are considered financial aid and must be processed through the Financial Aid Office.

Requirements:

  • Students must be in good standing and currently enrolled and taking a minimum of 6 credits.
  • Emergencies must be documented and related to daily living expenses—not tuition, fees, and/or books.
  • The situation must qualify as a true emergency as determined by the SEA committee.
  • May not receive SEA funding more than once per academic year.
  • Only students with unmet financial need may apply.

REFUNDS/CREDITS

Refunds are offered in the form of future credit. Knowing that COVID-19 may cause extreme hardships for students to complete their courses, the refund exception committee will continue to review student requests for refunds. The process is outlined below:

Student withdraws from the course(s) and documents their request for a refund (future credit) via the Spring 2020 Refund Exception Form. The refund exception committee approves/denies requests for future credit based on the information provided. The committee can also approve partial refunds (future credit). Students will receive written notification regarding the decision. Students who wish to appeal may do so by following instructions in the written notification.
