CARES Relief Update
LMU is receiving about $4.7 million from the federal government to assist in mitigating some its new expenses. LMU Financial Aid is working continuously with the U.S. Department of Education to secure and disburse emergency grants to students from relief funds allocated in the CARES Act. We are also working continuously with congressional, state, county, and L.A. City leaders to assure that our needs are considered.
On May 21, the U.S. Department of Education released a new statement regarding student eligibility for CARES Act funding. LMU Financial Aid is revising the university’s plan to begin disbursement of funds based on this new information. More details will be announced soon.
