We are excited to announce that SA真人厅 will be receiving additional funding authorized by the American Rescue Plan of 2021 (ARP). 按照《SA真人厅在学校》的要求, Andrews intends to use 50 percent of the total allotment to provide emergency financial aid grants to students enrolled in spring 2020 and have continued enrollment to fall 2021.

The ARP requires that 机构s prioritize students with exceptional need (such as students who receive Pell Grants) and also authorizes grants to students exclusively enrolled in distance education. This grant is intended to help eligible students cover some expenses related to the cost of attending SA真人厅 (including tuition, 食物, 住房, health care—including mental health care—or childcare) or for other emergency costs that may have arisen due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. SA真人厅 has approximately 1,302 students who may qualify for these funds, and who were enrolled for the fall 2021 semester as of Sept. 3, 2021.

在9月. 7, 2021, we will have communicated by email with all 1,302 eligible students who have been selected to receive these additional ARP HEERF III funds. These students are enrolled in classes on the main campus or distance education during the fall 2021 semester. 另外, some of these students had filed a 2021–2022 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), 第四章是否符合条件, and had also documented exceptional need.

To begin the review and confirmation process to determine qualification for these funds, SA真人厅 ran a report of registered main campus/distance education students who had filed a FAFSA for 2021–2022. 然后, to help determine our selection of students who also demonstrated exceptional need, SA真人厅 used the Estimated Family Contribution (EFC), as determined by the FAFSA application.

  • 本科 students who were selected were Federal Pell Grant recipients. 研究生 students who were selected had a zero (0) EFC. These students will receive $2,500.
  • 本科 students who filed the FAFSA but were not Pell Eligible and 研究生 students who filed a FAFSA will receive $1,500.
  • 学生 who did not file a FAFSA but were in school spring 2020 and are registered for fall 2021 will receive $1,000. 

We have also notified these students via email that they were selected to receive ARP grants. Once a qualified student accepts the ARP HEERF III funding, those monies will be disbursed to each student’s account and then delivered by direct deposit (e退款) or by paper check that will be sent to the student’s current financial statement address. The student also has the option to post their HEERF funds to their student account balance. If eligible students do not acknowledge the ARP funds by Sept. 30, 2021, they may forfeit the ARP funds award.

学生 who are eligible should take the following steps to properly accept the ARP HEERF III funding:

  1. Open the email you've received from 学生金融服务.
  2. 点击 “ARP HEERF承认” link in the body of your email.
  3. At the link, complete electronic acknowledgement by clicking 提交.
