Although limited tuition assistance for students with urgent financial need (e.g. participants in free or reduced lunch programs) is available through Project Advance, we encourage schools and students to explore the possibility of scholarship aid through local organizations.
When applying for emergency tuition assistance, supporting documents must be attached to each request (e.g. a current W-2 statement or 1040 form, approval letter of qualification for reduced or free school lunch programs, or details of special circumstances).
Parents or guardians are responsible for completing the Emergency Tuition Assistance Form and then returning all the supporting documents to the SU Project Advance office for approval prior to the first payment due date.
