Emergency Aid Application
CARES Act Funds: Review FAQs about CARES Act emergency grants to find out information such as eligibility, what expenses are covered, and more.
Spring and Summer emergency aid applications are now closed. We are only accepting Fall 2020 applications if you are registered for the fall semester.
Note: Please allow 3-4 weeks for a response to your Emergency Aid application. You will be notified through your preferred email account as indicated in ASAP. Funding priority will be given to students who have not received CARES Act funds before. Due to funding limitations, multiple applications and second requests will not be processed or approved. If additional funding assistance is needed, students may apply for the UTSA Educational Expense Loan.
Please note that emergency grants are available to both degree-seeking undergraduate and graduate students and will be given out as long as funds are available. These are one-time funds only that are administered as long as a financial aid application is on file and if all financial aid, such as grants and student loans, are exhausted. Those without a FAFSA or TASFA on file or whose aid is not exhausted may be offered an emergency loan. This emergency loan will need to be repaid within the semester. Please fill out the Emergency Aid Application below and attach supporting documentation in order to be considered for emergency aid.
