How can the Office of Student and Family Support help?
College is a time to discover your passions, meet new people and begin your path to professional excellence. Sometimes that takes more time than you expected—maybe you’re changing majors, or you have not made many connections as you’d like or found an outlet for your interests.
The Office of Student and Family Support is here to help you overcome barriers to reaching graduation. We collaborate with departments across campus to offer holistic support through academic, emotional, social, spiritual and financial resources. We help you navigate college, find what you love to do and make a difference along the way.
With the support of the Creighton community behind you, you can succeed and thrive—in your studies, your life and your career. Bluejays are resilient.

Student Emergency Funds Application
Currently enrolled Creighton University students who find themselves in an unexpected situation who cannot meet immediate essential expenses may be eligible for assistance. In these cases, the Student Emergency Fund may be able to provide you with limited and short-term financial assistance. The fund is designated to offset a short-term emergent financial need and is not intended to replace or supplement financial aid.
Parents and Family Engagement
At Creighton University, we believe parents and families are partners in student success. Use these different engagement tools to stay engaged with your student's academic career.
100% of students who don’t ask for help, don’t receive it.
Learning to ask for help or learning that it is ok to ask a question is a part of the adulting process at college. We are here to help students thrive at Creighton.
You’re not on the college journey by yourself. Creighton has the resources and the community to help you reach your goals and find your place here. Please reach out to us and we’ll create a success plan with you.

Collaborating with faculty and staff across the Creighton community is key to student retention. Along with direct intervention, the trusted voice of faculty and professional staff is our strongest tool to help students navigate their path at Creighton.
