CARES Act Information

CARES Act Notice:

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, or the CARES Act, is an economic stimulus bill passed by congress and signed into law to respond to financial hardship brought on by the 2020 pandemic. Through the CARES Act the school is able to provide students with emergency financial aid grants to help cover expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus.

Funds have been provided to our school to distribute to students who have filed a FAFSA for the 2020-2021 school year and are approved for title IV (federal financial aid) funds. Once eligibility is determined, we will be dispersing the funds equally among qualifying students. If you have filed your FAFSA, have federal loans or grants, and do not receive a portion of this funding by February of 2021, please reach out to make sure you were not overlooked.
