Financial emergencies often occur when we least expect them. The Eagle Support Program (ESP) provides short-term loans to assist eligible students facing emergency expenses or unanticipated financial losses threatening their enrollment. These situations are typically time-sensitive and one-time. The level of need must be $1,000 or less.

The program can only consider special assistance for emergency expenses one time per academic year.

Remember: the best prevention for the unknown is to be prepared today. The SMMC coaching team helps students learn how to best prepare for financial emergencies should they occur during your college experience.
