Eligible students are notified to apply for emergency grants via their S&T email account. Awards will be processed within 2 weeks of each application round. After the application is reviewed, the student will receive a message via their S&T email account notifying them of the outcome. Award amount decisions cannot be appealed.
Emergency aid funds will be paid directly to the student's account. If the student is eligible for a refund, the Cashier's office will process the refund to be sent to the student. If a student has direct deposit, the funds will be sent directly to the student's bank account. If no direct deposit is established, a check will be issued and may delay when the student receives the funds due to processing. Information on setting up direct deposit can be found on the Cashier's website.
Supporting documentation (receipts) may be requested for certain expenses in order to help approve appropriate funds. Student Financial Assistance will contact the student requesting any necessary documentation and students should not submit documents unless requested.
HEERF funds are one-time grants specific to expenses resulting from COVID-19. The funds cannot be counted as part of your gross income or for tax credits. More information is available on the IRS website.
If you or your parent/legal guardians (or spouse for an independent student) have lost your job or income as a result of COVID-19, we encourage you to reach out to our office regarding a possible Special Circumstance review for the FAFSA.
