CARES Act and HEERF Emergency Grant Application

  • CARES Act and HEERF emergency grant funds are limited, and applications will be processed in the order in which they are received on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • To qualify for funding students must be enrolled in the semester for which they are requesting aid.
  • Students can only submit one application per semester regardless of receipt of CARES Emergency Grant in prior semester.
  • Award amounts may depend on a student’s requested amount, and maximum award amount is $500.
  • This funding does not count towards the students’ estimated financial assistance (EFA) for Federal Financial Aid, and therefore it will not reduce the amount of any other aid awarded or disbursed.
  • Once the application has been reviewed, the student will receive communication via their college email address regarding the status of the application and the timeline for disbursement.
  • Students may view the CARES Emergency Grant award amount in Self Service Financial Aid, MyAwards section.
  • CARES Emergency Grant awards are disbursed via BankMobile, a technology solution, powered by BMTX, Inc. Students who have not completed their BankMobile account set up or have not selected a preferred refund method may do so by clicking here to access BankMobile’s website.

CARES Application funding has ended for Fall 2021
