We understand that it hasn’t been easy for students to adjust to so many changes over the past month. If you’re finding yourself struggling financially, academically or personally, you’re not alone. Here are a few resources that might help.
If you need help meeting your basic needs
If you’re a full-time MacEwan student and you’ve lost your job due to the pandemic, you may be eligible for the COVID-19 Student Relief Bursary. Apply by clicking on the Financial Aid tile in myStudentSystem.
Sometimes you just need someone to talk to, and who better than one of your own peers? SAMU’s Peer Support is a student-operated service that provides students with a safe, confidential environment to talk with a trained volunteer listener via online chat – no appointment necessary. For hours and other details, visit SAMU.ca/PeerSupport. Please note that the Peer Support team members are not registered psychologists.
If you’re having a hard time learning online
As you wrap up your final projects and exams for the Winter term and get ready to start Spring/Summer term courses, you might need a little help transitioning to online learning. If you need research support, have a question about citations or want some writing pointers, the library staff are online and ready to guide you. Check out the five ways MacEwan Librarians are ready to help you work online.
We acknowledge that the land on which we gather in Treaty Six Territory is the traditional gathering place for many Indigenous people. We honour and respect the history, languages, ceremonies and culture of the First Nations, Métis and Inuit who call this territory home.
