Emergency Funding

Emergency Funding for International Students

The International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) Office offers emergency funding to degree-seeking or English Language Program (ELP) international students whose financial situation has changed due to unforeseen circumstances beyond their control and who can document their financial need; however, this emergency funding is limited. Students who have been at UW-Platteville fewer than two semesters (Fall and Spring) are typically not eligible for emergency funding.  Priority will be given to international students who are within 1-2 semesters of completing their degree. Consideration will be given based on a commitment to a diverse student population.
