Students who had an Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) of $0 – $40,000 as determined on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), are automatically awarded funds based on the tiers below and you do not need to complete an application for the Cares Emergency Relief fund.
Students with EFCs of greater than $40,000 can apply using this form and will be awarded up to $250 if approved.
||$0 – $20,000 = $650 award
||$20,001 – $30,000 = $450 award
||$30,001 – $40,000 = $250 award
Students who were not automatically awarded the emergency grant can be considered for funding by applying here.
Students who apply and are approved for funding can receive up to $250 from these funds. A CARES Act review committee will review each application and render approval or denials. Processing time will take 2 to 3 weeks.
Students who received an automatic award may apply for an additional $250 award provided they can document costs that exceed the total amount they may be awarded. For example, a student who received an automatic award of $650 would need to document $900 or more in COVID-19 related expenses ($650 automatic award + $250 additional award = $900).
Funds will be awarded on a first come basis until all funds have been distributed.
