If you find yourself short of financial resources, we encourage you to reach out to Financial Aid — even if you never have before. Leave a message on their phone with details of your situation, or provide them in email. Counselors will research your situation and get back to you.

If you have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, resources like rental and utility assistance may be available to you.

Are you a current Pierce College student in need of emergency help with transportation, housing, childcare or food?

We encourage you to apply for emergency grants through our Financial Aid or Workforce offices.

Financial Aid Office

Federal Emergency Grants offer a one-time payment to a debt for those who qualify. Contact the Financial Aid office at 253-964-6544.

Workforce Office

State Emergency Assistance Funding supports current students with living expenses (not including tuition and fees) such as transportation, housing, childcare or food. Students must complete a request form and have a short intake conversation to submit their form. Funds are limited!

  • Go to Workforce Connections for the request form and more details.
  • After completing the application, contact Job and Career Connections for an appointment at 253-964-6265.
