Students can submit a financial hardship application if they want Financial Aid Staff to conduct a Professional Judgement review.

This year, because Emmanuel College has received COVID relief funds to distribute to students experiencing financial hardship, we have combined the Professional Judgement application with the COVID Relief funds application. If you feel you qualify for either Professional Judgement or COVID relief funds, please complete the application below and submit it to

All applications must be received with the required supporting documents otherwise they will not be processed. Applications are reviewed the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month. 

Students with exceptional need that receive American Rescue Plan (ARP) COVID relief funds are not obligated to use those funds to pay an outstanding balance with Emmanuel College. However, if the outstanding balance is part of the financial hardship a family is facing, students can elect to have Emmanuel hold their relief funds on their account to assist in covering the balance. Students who wish to use their relief funds in this way should also complete the Consent Form below and return it to the Office of Financial Aid with the completed application..
