Methods Used to Determine which Students will Receive Emergency Grants and How Much

Spring 2022 Methods

Undergraduate Students who completed the 2021-22 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), with exceptional financial need as determined by their FAFSA expected family contribution (EFC) ranging from $0-$15,000, and were enrolled in at least one unit for the Spring 2022 semester were prioritized and automatically receive a one-time, lump-sum grant of $1,900. No separate application is needed. Students are not required to have received federal aid or fall into just the $0-$15,000 EFC range to qualify. If you have extenuating COVID-19 related expenses that exceed $1,900, you may submit a HEERF 3.0 Emergency Relief Grant Application no later than April 22, 2022 for additional consideration. Students who have not completed a FAFSA may also still apply. Financial Aid will review and determine an amount, if any, on a case-by-case basis.
