The CARES Act provides emergency financial aid grants to students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to COVID 19. These funds may be used to cover a student's expenses related to COVID 19 or the disruption of on-campus delivery of courses. Expenses may include food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, childcare, and transportation costs. If you believe you have suffered financial hardship due to any of these factors, please respond to the situations that apply in the list below and note expenses incurred for which you are seeking reimbursement. Explanations for hardship must include job loss, employment furlough, medical expenses, or additional expenses due to online instructional delivery. These expenses should be incurred during the period from March 23 through May 8.
