Congress passed a bill in late December that authorized additional Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF II) dollars to provide emergency student grants as well as defray institutional expenses related to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Office of Financial Aid will make payments prioritizing students with the highest need based on FAFSA data. Funds will be paid automatically and directly to students. Students do not need to apply. Students will receive an email to their K account notifying them of payment.
These emergency student grants are intended to help with emergency costs that arise due to coronovirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care or child care.
