Panther Relief Fund

Your health and safety are South Florida State College’s top priority and we know that many of you are at home taking classes and working, taking care of family, or loved ones and making the best of of a very difficult situation. We want you to know that we are thinking of you and we will get through this time together.

Many students have had their academic and personal lives disrupted by the COVID-19 virus. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was signed into law to get support to those most in need as quickly as possible and that starts with college students whose lives have been disrupted, with many facing financial challenges and struggling to make ends meet.

In response, SFSC, with the support of the federal government’s CARES Act, has developed the PANTHER EMERGENCY STUDENT AID FUND to help with immediate financial needs. Any student who has been negatively affected by the COVID-19 outbreak and needs emergency financial assistance is encouraged to complete the PANTHER EMERGENCY STUDENT AID FUND APPLICATION. Follow the procedure to submit the application with appropriate documentation. This application will give us the information we require to respond to your need and to provide financial assistance in accordance with the guidelines set forth by the U.S. Department of Education. 

To assist with your continued success, all Student Services are available remotely by phone and email at southflorida.edu/studentservices. We also have a Remote Engagement Team who are reaching out to all SFSC students individually and are ready to answer your questions.

South Florida State College is committed to your continued academic success and we post updates to the website and to our social media platforms whenever possible so you can stay informed and successful during COVID-19. Keep up-to-date on College developments at southflorida.edu and by paying close attention to your SFSC email for updates and real-time information. We have been committed to serving our students, even in the most challenging of times. Our hearts go out to everyone who has been impacted by this global crisis. Our offices may be closed, but we’re still here for you. Watch your email for updates and real-time information.
