Emergency Assistance Funding

Bates Technical College cares and we are here to support you in achieving your dreams and educational goals. 

Bates Technical College is offering emergency assistance to students who experience a financial emergency or unanticipated expenses that cause financial hardship. The goal is to cover expenses that affect a student’s ability to stay in college and complete their education. Emergency funding is not intended to provide ongoing relief of recurring expenses or as a consistent supplement for educational purposes. These funds will NOT be awarded for more than one quarter per year (Fall/Winter/Spring/Summer) without extenuating circumstances. 

We understand that many of you may be struggling to make ends meet. Bates Technical College is here to assist you during these difficult times. We have established limited emergency funding for currently enrolled students. 

All communications will be sent to your listed email address on your ctcLink file. If you need help setting up your student email, please email studenthelp@batestech.edu
