Method(s) Used to Determine Which Students Receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants
Aultman College will follow Department of Education rules to distribute HEERF grants directly to students. These grants reimburse students for expenses related to disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19. Funds go directly to students and are not used by the college to offset outstanding student balances. Maximum grant amounts are determined by the college based on available funds.
The following eligibility criteria govern HEERF grant distributions. Students must:
- be Title IV eligible as indicated on current FAFSA application;
- be enrolled on or after March 13, 2020, the date the state of emergency was declared; and
- complete the application and expense attestation forms.
Note: Students enrolled in an exclusively online program are not eligible to receive these grants.
Students enrolled in Spring 2020 will receive the largest allocation of funds (one time payment up to $1,000 per student based on expense incurred). Remaining funds will be distributed to Summer (one time payment up to $750 per student based on expense incurred) and Fall 2020 (one time payment up to $500 per student based on expense incurred) students. All grants are first come, first served.
