6. The method(s) used by the institution to determine which students receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants and how much they would receive under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act.

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 included a student-initiated application process related to more immediate needs surrounding the pandemic, while the second phase expanded the application to ensure students had the technology resources necessary to be successful in the Hy-Flex educational model used by Grand View due to 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.
