Additional Information

Students are pre-selected based on eligibility criteria outlined above.  For HEERF I funding, prior to August 31, 2020 an application is not utilized to determine eligibility for 2019-2020 recipients.  Students who were pre-identified are sent an award notification outlining eligibility criteria, directions for use of funds, guidelines, and funding amounts.  After September 1, 2020, students will be required to complete a simple online application for the Office of Financial Aid to determine eligibility for the 2020-21 academic year, however, criteria won't change.  Notifications were sent to all currently enrolled Fall 2020 students via their student email address and a text message to let them know when the application cycle opens up.  The application available after September 1, 2020 will also list all eligibility criteria mentioned above as well as the student's attestation to use the grant funds to cover COVID-19 related expenses.

For HEERF II & III funding, an application is not utilized to determine eligibility for recipients.

On March 4, 2022, Grayson College launched a debt relief campaign to assist student in paying past due debt owed to the college.  Students who owe a debt that was incurred on their account from March 13, 2020 to January 6, 2022 (end of Fall 2021 semester) were notified about the campaign.  Students were directed to fill out a short application online to submit to the Office of Financial Aid for review.  A FAFSA Application is not a requirement to receive debt relief funds.  The application deadline is April 29, 2022 at 5:00 pm.  572 student with a total outstanding debt of $341,047.23 were identified for this campaign.

The student emergency aid program is managed by the Counseling & Social Services department at Grayson College.  Eligibility for funds is strictly determined by that department.  The Office of Financial Aid only awards and transfers the funds over to the Business Office for disbursement to the student.  For more information about the student emergency aid program, please visit the Grayson Cares webpage.
