Resources for Students and Family Members
Parent and Family Information Sessions
Reed hosted spring term information sessions for students and their families. The sessions addressed academics (e.g., registering for spring classes, course formats, finals, thesis, and senior celebrations); COVID-19 guidelines for returning to campus in the spring; student engagement programming; how to plan for summer; and more. The recorded sessions are available below.
The full spectrum of student support services—including tutoring, counseling services, peer advising, and disability accommodations—will be available during the spring semester, though many will continue to operate in modified ways in accordance with health and safety guidelines. Support for community members disproportionately affected by COVID-19 will be a key priority.
Reed’s Student Hub provides 24-hour access to important information and resources related to academic advising and support, classes and registration, research and library services, career advising, housing and dining, finances, and more.

COVID-19 Financial Support
Reed is committed to supporting students and families who are experiencing financial difficulty or incurring additional expenses as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Students seeking financial support should contact the financial aid office.
Staff will work with students to determine whether their needs can be addressed through the financial aid process and may refer them to another campus resource.
Reed College Emergency Fund
Contact Sara Rosenberger in the business office for more information about loans for students who are experiencing financial hardship.
Office of Financial Aid
For general queries regarding financial aid, students may call or email the financial aid office. Students and parents may also book a virtual meeting with a financial aid staff member.
Should the college be forced to ask students to leave campus during the spring semester due to pandemic conditions, the college will prorate room and board charges and refund unused board points.
