We strongly recommend that students ensure that they have Direct Deposit setup. If a student is not signed up for Direct Deposit, then it could take up to two weeks to receive your emergency funds. The university works diligently to process funding as quickly as possible. Awards will be applied directly to the student’s Statement of Account. Information on setting up direct deposit can be found on the Cashier's website.
Eligible students are notified to apply for emergency grants via their S&T email account. Awards will be processed within 2 weeks of the October 10th deadline. 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.
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.
