Emergency Assistance & Lending Library

The Lending Library and Student Support Program allow students to apply for textbook loans and financial assistance for tuition, fees, and emergent issues, such as limited transportation funds.
If you are in need of emergency financial assistance, textbook(s), or equipment complete the Emergency Assistance & Lending Library Application.

To qualify for emergency assistance and/or a textbook/equipment loan, students:

  • must complete the application thoroughly
  • must provide specific information request (i.e. $ amount needed or specific textbook/equipment need)
  • must provide any supporting documentation to prove the need to (i.e. quote/ estimate, receipts, bills, lease, etc.)
  • must provide a plan to be able to financially manage the remainder of the time as a student at OTC

Equipment can be specific tools required for a course or technology equipment needed to complete online courses. While the textbooks/equipment are in your possession, you are responsible for them. Any textbooks/equipment damaged, lost, or stolen will have to be replaced. A hold will be placed on students' accounts for textbooks/equipment needing to be replaced or are overdue. This hold will be released upon the return of the textbook/equipment in the same condition as it was borrowed.

Preference is given to students who are nearing the end of their academic program and have not received financial assistance from Emergency Assistance during the current fiscal year. Upon approval of your request, you will receive an email via your student email from the Office of Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs. You will check out textbooks/equipment from the Office of Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs Office (JEK 198).

Incomplete applications will not be processed. The application review is a minimum of two (2) business days.
