1. Emergency Financial Aid

Continuing UO international students who have an unexpected financial hardship may be eligible for limited emergency financial assistance through our office, However, our funding for 2021-22 is very limited. Please apply for financial assistance through the Dean of Students and the Student Financial Aid and Scholarships (see above links). If you have exhausted all other emergency financial aid opportunities, call the ISSS office at 541-346-3206 to schedule an appointment with an ISSS advisor.

2. Severe Economic Hardship

This is a type of employment authorization for F-1 students suffering economic hardship due to “severe, unforeseen economic necessity.” Severe economic hardship employment allows off-campus employment up to twenty hours per week while school is in session, full-time (over 20 hours per week) during vacation periods. The off-campus employment can be in any area; the work does not have to be related to your major.
