Beginning March 17, as a COVID-19 preventive measure, CAPS offices at Olin Health Center, MSU Student Union, and the Neighborhoods will be closed. CAPS counseling and psychiatry staff will work remotely to help meet the needs of MSU students.

MSU Financial Aid: Emergency Needs

Students in good standing can talk to their financial aid counselor about applying for extra funds for specific emergency needs. See more on MSU Financial Aid Emergency Assistance.

City & County Resources

Various city and county resources are available to support student needs.

Michigan Department of Health and Human Services

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services offers a variety of resources and services through its MI Bridges, including  the Food Assistance Program (FAP), Cash Assistance and State Emergency Relief (SER) to help pay for heat and utilities.

Generally, to qualify, a person needs to work 20 hours per week, but there is an option to explain why one cannot work (for example, losing an on-campus job).
