Crisis Fund

In 2006, Northeast Iowa Community College established a crisis fund for students with an immediate crisis that threatens their ability to attend class or progress in their coursework. To date, more than $60,000 has been raised to serve 185 students.

Students may be eligible if they have a crisis that is affecting their ability to attend school and to progress in their coursework. Students can apply for assistance through the Counseling Office on their respective campus.
