We hope this note finds you all healthy and getting ready for the end of the spring semester. We wanted to communicate some news related to the newly enacted CARES Act. A provision of this Act will allow us to provide emergency assistance funds to our students who have been displaced or adversely affected by the COVID-19 global health crisis.
We are working as quickly as possible to understand the rules and regulations surrounding these funds as guidance is evolving and changing daily. We anticipate getting access to these funds in the coming weeks and once we do, we will be distributing payments directly to you. Please make sure your updated mailing address is on your student record.
We will be back in touch shortly once the government releases the funds and provides further direction on how they should be distributed. Please stay tuned.
