Student Assistance Program

We understand life happens. And what life throws at you can sometimes get in the way of reaching your goals. STLCC offers the Student Assistance Program to help you through many situations that may make it harder to finish your degree.

Sept. 2, 2020 Update:

We recognize that while things still look a bit different than they have in the past, the Student Assistance Program is still here for you. To accommodate local and federal guidelines, services will be provided on an appointment basis through phone and video conferencing methods. You can also utilize the chat feature to connect with staff. Here’s who to contact at each campus:

Let us know how you are doing and how we can help. Complete our campus Care Team survey and we'll respond to you within a couple of days with the information & resources you request.


Crisis Assistance

If you find yourself needing a meal to get you through the day, in need of a safe place to stay for the night or you are experiencing an unsafe relationship, we can help connect you with local resources. The Archers' Market order form is available on our Hunger Response page. 

Navigating Assistance Programs

Do you need help determining if you’re eligible for government assistance, gathering materials to apply and ensuring a quick and simple application process? If so, we have a large library of resources to help you navigate the process and connect you to additional support.

Program Verification

We don’t just help you enroll in assistance programs, but also support you along the way, including verifying attendance and progress for certain programs.

Advocacy Services

Do you find yourself in a situation where you have to choose between your education and something else? Are you feeling overwhelmed by a responsibility or burden? We’re ready to empower and help teach you the skills to advocate for yourself.

Additional Resources

There are many resources in the St. Louis region. These two sites maintain lists and databases with current information on available assistance for a variety of needs:

  • Mercy Neighborhood Ministries: Get access to over 40 resources to help you make ends meet in the St. Louis area.
  • United Way 2-1-1: From basic needs to mental health, this online database lets you search for the resources you need.
