Emergency Assistance

Hawks Helping Hawks

We understand and recognize that being a student can be challenging in more than one aspect. In addition to balancing life and school, there may come a time when you need some assistance due to an unexpected and unforeseen life circumstance.

In order to help support you during these times, we have established the following support programs:

Hawk Emergency Fund Grant

Assistance is available to currently enrolled UHCL students experiencing unforeseen, unavoidable, and extenuating emergency circumstances which potentially cause difficulties enrolling or remaining enrolled in classes. For details pertaining to qualifications and the application process, please visit the link above.

Hurricane Evacuation

During an emergency, UHCL may provide transportation to an evacuation site for any currently enrolled UHCL student without a means to evacuate. For details pertaining to the program and how to register, please visit the link above.

Hawk Pantry

The Hawk Pantry provides non-perishable food items, toiletries, gender specific hygiene products, and limited school supplies for all UHCL students. For details pertaining to accessing the Hawk Pantry, please visit the link above.

The Online Learning Assistance and Reimbursement Program (oLARP) is for currently enrolled UHCL students who do not have a reliable computer and are in need of some assistance. For details pertaining to the oLARP application process and qualification, please visit the link above. 


UHCL has finished disbursing the Federal funding received through the CARES Act to directly assist students. Visit our CARES Act Reporting page for more information on how these funds were administered.
