  • The method for distributing CARES Act funding for students was based on the criteria that a student must be Title IV eligible and had to be attending at least one class that met in person as these were the students who had been most disrupted and impacted due to the cessation of in person classes and residence hall shutdowns.  The following allocation was used:
  • Students who lived in campus housing and attended in person classes received $800
  • Students who attended in person classes as a traditional daytime student received $600
  • Students who attended at least one in person class as part of the evening accelerated program received $300
  • Students who were eligible for funding were notified via email on April 29, 2020 of their eligibility.  They also received a link to a form to fill out if they wished to request additional CARES Act funding due to extra expenses incurred as part of the disruption.
