Grand View is awarding the CARES Act emergency grants in two phases that address the immediate and sustained needs of our students. The first phase includes a student-initiated application process and the second phase uses existing student support structures to identify students with needs associated with COVID-19. Both phases provide financial assistance to students with increased expenses caused by the disruption of campus operations due to the coronavirus pandemic. Student eligibility is determined according to the parameters set by the CARES Act, including Title IV eligibility and spring 2020 enrollment for students who were not exclusively in on-line courses at the time of the disruption.
7. Any instructions, directions, or guidance provided by the institution to students concerning the Emergency Financial Aid Grants.
Grand View notified students and parents of the emergency grants available via email. The email linked to an application on the University’s website on the COVID-19 web page. Following review, the students were notified of their grant amount via email that also included additional relief resources.
