Overcoming Health Barriers to Graduation Emergency Fund
We all know life can get tough. Unexpected things happen. And, even the most dedicated, hardworking student can be struck by unforeseen medical issues. Unfortunately, when this happens, students who need more than a few counseling sessions to get through a really hard episode of anxiety or depression, or the unlucky few who need to see a specialist medical provider in the community because of a scary diagnosis, simply can't. Even for those with insurance, the co-pays are often an insurmountable barrier, public transportation isn't available where/when it's needed, or the limited number of specialists in our rural community makes it impossible find a local provider with the right training. As a result, students are forced to leave university -- a problem that could be fixed sometimes with as little as $20 for a co-pay or $10 for a taxi ride. Health and Wellbeing services are a true force-multiplier, supporting student graduation and this fund increases student success through access to well-trained physical/mental health treatment and prevention resources, helping students overcome unexpected health barriers on the way to graduation.

This fund is used to support student success by increasing access to well-trained physical and mental health treatment and prevention services, including assisting with the costs of provider visits, financial gaps to treatment like co-pays or other out-of-pocket costs associated with short-term health care, prevention efforts, emergency basic needs, provider recommended evaluations, developing specialized provider competency, best practices training or other professional development, transportation related to student medical visits or leave of absence, or other short-term basic health needs as recommended by a licensed provider.

The J-Point Redistribution program is a way for students, staff, and faculty with meal plans to help students who are in need. J-points (the campus' food currency) don't roll over at the end of the year. People with leftover J-Points can donate those points to Oh SNAP and then students who demonstrate a need can receive those points. Students requesting J-Points do not need to have a meal plan. If you would like to inquire about donating j-points or if you are in need of j-points please email ravin@humboldt.edu.
