  1. CARES – The institution initially identified all students actively enrolled in a program as of March 13, 2020, that transitioned from on-site learning to distance learning as eligible for Emergency Financial Aid Grants.  After reviewing guidance issued by the Department on April 21, 2020, the institution concluded student recipients must be eligible for Title IV Federal Student Aid, in addition to the enrollment and on-site learning transition criteria.  Although CARES Act Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students were allocated for food, housing, course materials, technology, healthcare, and childcare expenses, the institution determined technology as the only category students may have incurred expenses related to the disruption of campus operations.  The institution identified four technology related subcategories students may have incurred expenses, and an appropriate amount associated with each subcategory was assigned by group consensus.  A student survey for technology related expenses was created and sent to all eligible students.  The student survey responses were used to calculate each student Emergency Financial Aid Grant distributed.  


CRRSAA – The institution identified all students actively enrolled in a program as of December 27, 2020 and up to the date of disbursement as eligible for Emergency Financial Aid Grants.  CRRSAA Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students were allocated for any component of the student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arose due to coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care, or child care.  A student survey was created and sent to all eligible students.  The student survey responses were used to determine the Emergency Financial Aid Grants distributed.  Students with exceptional need were prioritized.  Students with exceptional need received $2,600.  All other students received $2,000.


ARP – Students identified for CRRSAA funds were determined as eligible for ARP Emergency Financial Aid Grants.  ARP Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students were allocated for any component of the student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arose due to coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care, or child care.  The 2020-21 Pell Grant maximum award amount of $6,345 was used as the maximum amount disbursed to all students.  Students received the difference of $6,345 and the amount disbursed for CRRSAA.



  1. CARES – The institution contacted students without a current FAFSA on file and explained the opportunity for eligibility to receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants by completing the FAFSA.  Students were informed the FAFSA was necessary to determine eligibility for the CARES Act Emergency Financial Aid Grants, and not a request for Title IV funds.  Fifty-two eligible students received the survey for technology related expenses incurred due to the disruption of campus operations.


CRRSAA – One hundred two eligible students received the survey for expenses incurred for the cost of attendance or emergency costs such as tuition, food, housing, health care, or child care.  By signing the survey, students acknowledged expenses incurred due to coronavirus.  Students were notified that no additional documentation was necessary to receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants.
