CARES Act HEERF Information

In June 2020, the University announced that it accepted $6.2 million of funding that the federal government allocated under the CARES Act Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund, and is directing the entire amount to eligible students with the greatest financial need for their COVID-related expenses. These funds are an important additional source of support for students with financial need who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the Autumn Quarter, the University invited all students who met the eligibility requirements and had incurred expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus to submit applications for CARES Act HEERF funding.
