Southeastern College CARES Act (COVID-19) Student Aid
Southeastern College is working diligently to assist students in attaining their higher education goals during unprecedented financial challenges associated with COVID-19. H.R. 748, The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act makes provision for limited grant aid to Southeastern College students who demonstrate emergency financial need directly attributable to the COVID-19 crisis.
Full-time and part-time undergraduate and graduate Southeastern College students enrolled on March 13, 2020 are eligible to receive a one-time grant through the CARES Act initiative. Priority for Initial Grant aid is placed on students with highest economic need as indicated by their EFC. Students with an EFC of greater than $15,000 will not receive an Initial Grant; they may, however, apply for assistance under Emergency Grants I and II.
Additionally, currently enrolled and students enrolling prior to Emergency Grant application deadlines may apply for additional emergency funding for financial emergencies related to the COVID-19 economic crisis.
CARES Act grants will be issued in three phases.
Phase 1 – Initial Grants. Initial grants will be automatically awarded to eligible students and delivered to students by May 25, 2020. No application is required to receive grants under Phase 1.
Phase II – Emergency Grants. The second round of grants will be awarded based on an application demonstrating financial emergencies related to COVID-19.
Phase III – Emergency Grants II. The third and final round of grants will also be awarded based on an application demonstrating financial emergencies related to COVID-19. Emergency Grants II require an application. The application window will be posted on this page once the dates are determined so please check back for details.
Please make sure to review the Policy and FAQ pages to determine eligibility and apply for emergency funding.
