UCSB has recently established a multi-disciplinary team to assist students who are experiencing a financial crisis. The UCSB Financial Crisis Response Team will work closely with Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships and other campus resources to evaluate and respond to students in urgent financial need.

If you are experiencing a crisis, email the Financial Crisis Response Team the details and they will work with you to develop a plan of action.  Depending on the situation, you will either be asked to answer a few questions about the situation in an on-line form or be asked to meet in person with an advisor in the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships, or both. An advisor will help guide you through the process. This effort was put in place to help undergraduate students as well as graduate students. Additionally, an emergency loan program has been established to assist international students in need.
