Students: Check Your Email for Federal Grant Funding Information

submitted by

As a result of funding provided by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, funds are being disbursed to all students enrolled this fall semester. Emails were sent on Friday with information about how to access this funding.

Following guidance by the Department of Education, grant amounts were primarily determined by a student’s program type and their Expected Family Contribution (EFC) from the FAFSA. We understand that students have experienced a multitude of disruptions in the midst of this pandemic, including financial distress. We hope this funding can provide some small relief during this challenging time.

In addition to this federal grant, we also want to remind students whose financial circumstances have changed that a special circumstance application for financial aid is available on the Student Financial Services website. Changed circumstances may include, but are not limited to, job loss, reduction of income, change to household size, one-time sources of income, etc.
