Sometimes, things happen. We are here to help.

CU Boulder has a commitment to inclusive excellence, and we believe all students should have access to all the resources and support they need to thrive in college and finish their education. CU Boulder’s Student Emergency Fund (SEF) is a stipend that can assist students during unanticipated life events that might cause the student to pause or stop their educational goals. The fund is managed by the Division of Student Affairs.

Case managers in the Division of Student AffairsÌýsupport students who are experiencing a financial emergency or have financial concerns. Our staff understands that the financial concerns may go beyond what the emergency fund is able to support. Our team will work with you to explore financial resources on and off campus, which includesÌýlooking into additional emergency funding here at CU Boulder.
