Educational Credit Management Corporation Emergency Aid Program

All FSU Undergraduate Students,

Fayetteville State University has been approved for the Emergency Aid Program offered by Educational Credit Management Corporation (ECMC) as part of Project Success.  Project Success is an initiative designed by the U.S. Department of Education to help minority-serving institutions improve student success and institutional outcomes which is administered by ECMC.  The Emergency Aid Program is designed to support students’ persistence toward degree completion by removing unforeseen financial obstacles from their path, which if not resolved quickly, could cause students to abandon their plans for higher education.

Fayetteville State University will administer the funds and provide eligible student facing short-term, nonrecurring emergencies with one-time awards of emergency aid dollars to remedy the situation.  The student requesting the aid will complete an online application and submit supporting documentation of the emergency.  Student can request up to a maximum of $500. The student may apply multiple times, but the $500 limit is over the life of the program, not per request or per academic year.
