3.12.20: Further information as students prepare to leave campus

For any students--graduate, undergraduate, domestic or international--who are experiencing financial hardship and do not have the resources to purchase travel home, we can work with you on these concerns.  As we have already started using our housing system to track some requests, this remains the best system to gather information and respond to residential students. 

Dear Students,

By now, we hope you have seen the University decision to move classes to remote learning for the remainder of the semester.  If you haven't, please check your email for the subject line: Lehigh moves to remote learning for remainder of academic semester and familiarize yourself with the University's plan.

For any students--graduate, undergraduate, domestic or international--who are experiencing financial hardship and do not have the resources to purchase travel home, we can work with you on these concerns.  As we have already started using our housing system to track some requests, this remains the best system to gather information and respond to residential students. 

Therefore, students who live in Lehigh University on-campus housing can request support by visiting your Housing and Dining Self-Service Page located here. Click on “Applications” on the left side of the screen then click on “Move Out Form” to complete the request form. 

Students who live off-campus can request support through the Emergency Aid form. Additionally, any student with concerns about necessary technology resources to work remotely can use the Emergency Aid form to request support as well. All requests will be reviewed by the offices of the Dean of Students, Financial Aid and International Affairs. (Please note: Ignore any reference to “undergraduate students” on this application form for this situation. All students are eligible to apply.)

Your health and safety are important to us, particularly during this transitional period.  Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work to address the concerns of our community.

Sincerely,

Donald A. Outing, Ph.D., Vice President for Equity and Community
