Welcome to OLC'S OMG Emergency Student Aid Program

The OMG fund is available to students to apply for emergency expenses that if left unpaid, could contribute to a student stopping out. Examples include car repair, rent, food, medical/dental, transportation, utilities, and childcare. Expenses that are not eligible for funding include school expenses such as fines, tuition, books, supplies, and required tools/equipment.

Below are the student eligibility requirements and stipulations for the program along with the link to the application.

  1. Must be enrolled full or part time at OLC.
  2. Must have a minimum of 2.0 GPA.
  3. Must be enrolled in the semester in which they are requesting funding.
  4. This is a one-time funding program. If you are funded from the program, you may not apply again. If your request is denied, you are eligible to reapply.
  5. Funded applications will have the amount dispersed to the organization, business, etc. that the funds are to be used for. FUNDS WILL NOT BE PAID OUT TO STUDENT.
  6. Students are required to submit supporting documentation for the expense they are requesting funding for. For example, if it is a car repair, the student should provide an estimate from the mechanic or repair shop.

The application period for the OMG Emergency Aid Fund is closed and applicants are under review.
