Emergency Student Financial Assistance

We understand that this may be a stressful time with rapidly changing conditions. We would like to remind you that emergency resources are available to help you with unexpected financial hardship and can include assistance for gas, automotive repairs, utility bills, childcare, food, and medical expenses. Please complete the Emergency Financial Assistance Application and reach out to your success coach for more information. A printable version is also available in MyNicolet in the Document Center.

This application is for all the various forms of financial assistance for students at Nicolet College, which include:

  • Student Success, Student Support, and Emergency Assistance Program, which are 100% provided by grants from the federal Carl D. Perkins Act and the Wisconsin Technical College System
  • Nicolet College Foundation through the generosity of its donors
  • Gift cards provided by Student Activity Fees and private donors

What else is important to know?

If you are requesting assistance with a bill, please submit a copy with your application.

Funding is not guaranteed. To access some funding sources, students must have a complete and current FAFSA on file with Nicolet.

Students should expect to hear back on Emergency Financial Assistance applications and their next steps within 72 hours. Timelines depend upon the request and if any additional documentation is required.

Nicolet students can ask the Welcome Center for a Northwoods Transit punch card. Visit for Northwoods Transit routes and on demand services.
