Emergency aid is an effective tool that institutions use to retain those students who are faced with an unexpected financial crisis.
Resources such as housing or food assistance, emergency loans, and grants can help alleviate the financial strain a student may face on their path to a degree.
However, for emergency aid programs to make the most impact, institutions must partake in a highly collaborative, well-coordinated effort.
