South CARES Collaborative Access, Resources and Emergency Support

Life circumstances can change quickly, at times in ways outside of your control. We understand that these stressors can cause anxiety and may impact your ability to be successful.

At South, we are committed to your success and stand ready to connect you with the academic, financial, physical, and/or emotional support you may need in order to navigate these stressors.  We want to see you continue to flourish in your academic pursuits.


South CARES is USA's Collaborative Access, Resources, and Emergency Support program. The South CARES portal (below) will allow you to connect with us by submitting an online request for contact, securely. By sharing a little information about your situation we will match you with a Student Aid Advocate, who can help you in identifying resources and programming specific to your needs.
