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. Once a year, events are held on each campus to raise funds to sustain the crisis fund. 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.
