The method used by the School to determine which students received emergency financial aid grants under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act: Phase One: The School took the total amount of award for students and immediately disbursed 90% of the total amount to all eligible* students enrolled in its Title IV programs attending or committed to attend temporary online classes as of March 16, 2020, to provide emergency relief for essential items of daily living (child care, food and shelter, utilities, etc.). The amount allotted per student was an equitable $375. The School distributed a form for each eligible student to complete and return to the Financial Aid Office in order to receive his/her grant allotment via company check. Phase Two: The balance 10% of funds are being retained by the School in anticipation of the exceptional needs specific families have faced or will face in the coming months with their household finances or possible health impact on specific student families due to COVID-19
