We provide our students and their immediate families with access to benefits and services that help students stay in school and graduate. Whether it is after school programs, health insurance, legal advice, debt solutions, childcare or government benefits, we can help to identify the services that are available to you. Single Stop offers the following:

Petrie Student Emergency Grant Fund

The Carroll and Milton Petrie Student Emergency Grant Fund has been awarded to us for the purpose of providing quick-response emergency grants to matriculated students in good academic standing who are facing  short-term financial emergencies. Learn more about the Petrie Student Emergency Fund.

Contact us to make an appointment.
