The college plans to distribute funds to as many students as possible while focusing on those with the greatest financial need. Using the application responses and any follow up documentation, reviewers verify eligibility based on CARES Act specifications and demonstrated need due to disruption of college operations.
    • Demonstrated needs considered include:
      • Use of the college’s childcare services
      • Use of the college’s health services
      • Use of the college’s food and personal care pantry

      • A FAFSA already on file for the student
      • No FAFSA on file, but the student will file (assistance can be provided to students interested in filing)
      • No FAFSA on file and the student is not interested in filing (a separate form is required in order to determine eligibility)
    • Eligible applicants are awarded the following based on FASFA eligibility, Expected Family Contribution (EFC), and demonstrated need. Awards will not exceed the cost of attendance ($6,195).
      • Student EFC higher than 5576 = $1,000 award per term
      • Student EFC is 1-5576 = $1,500 award per term
      • Student EFC is 0 = $2,000 award per term
