As part of the federal government’s American Rescue Plan (ARP), the University has received $19,888,022 in additional supplemental funds designed to assist students in need because of the COVID-19 pandemic and its disruption of campus operations. Funds will be distributed during the 2021-22 academic year.

What types of expenses do HEERF emergency funds cover?

HEERF III Emergency Funding may be used for any component of the student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus, such as paying for tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care) or childcare.

How much funding is available?

Award amounts are from $300 to $2,200, depending on each student’s cost of attendance including living on campus, need, and on the student’s enrollment level (e.g., full-time, part-time). Amounts for medical school students will be based on the student’s socioeconomic circumstances indicated on FAFSA and details provided on their funding requests.
