Well-Being Resources

Student Well-Being Resources

We know that sometimes life makes it difficult to concentrate in class which can keep you from being academically successful. These things aren’t your fault! CBC, and our surrounding communities, offer students valuable resources to support you through hard times and support your well-being. We encourage you to take advantage of these resources—it’s what they’re here for!

You are urged to carefully research Community Resources to ensure that the services they provide align with your particular needs. CBC does not endorse or exercise control over any non-CBC resources listed on this page, and assumes no legal liability for the acts or omissions of any such persons or organizations. 


CBC Foundation Student Emergency Fund
Columbia Basin College Foundation’s Emergency Need Fund is funded in partnership with STCU in order to assist students who are experiencing an unforeseen financial crisis that is creating a barrier to their student success. The fund provides small grants to students who are experiencing a one-time financial hardship that is unlikely to occur again.

Money for You
Through the generous help of ASCBC and the CBC Foundation, we have three programs to help students: Childcare Reimbursement, Travel Reimbursement, and Emergency Short-term Loans. In addition, grant funding is available if you are a Workforce Education student pursuing a Certification or AAS.
