STUDENT EMERGENCY FINANCIAL AID GRANTS AND THE CARES ACT
Valor Christian College applied for and received the funds allocated for Student Emergency Financial Aid Grants under the CARES Act at the end of June. We are working diligently to get these funds in the hands of our students as quickly as possible while ensuring that we follow the regulations concerning those funds as they are developed and communicated by the Department of Education.
Only on-ground students who were enrolled in the Spring 2020 semester at a half-time or greater enrollment status at the time of the COVID-19 disruption, and who had a valid FAFSA on file with Valor Christian College are eligible for these funds due to the disruption of their housing, their on-ground courses, and their meal plans. Congress specifically excluded students whose education was being delivered exclusively online during the spring 2020 semester from eligibility for these funds.
No students are eligible for these funds due to summer enrollment as all of Valor Christian College’s summer courses have been and are offered exclusively online.
International and undocumented students are not eligible for the Emergency Financial Aid Grant Funds. To receive the funds, the student must have a valid FAFSA on file with Valor Christian College.
Valor Christian College signed and returned to the Department of Education, the Certification and Agreement and intends to use, no less than 50% of the funds received under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act to provide Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students.
Valor Christian College’s Student Emergency Financial Aid Grant allocation is: $147,267.00
As of Aug 13,2020 the amount of Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students that has been disbursed is: $141,750.00
The estimated number of students at Valor Christian College eligible to receive an Emergency Financial Aid Grant is: 111
As of December 22, 2020 the total number of students at Valor Christian College who have received an Emergency Financial Aid Grant is: 111
Valor Christian College will disburse the same amount in Emergency Financial Aid Grant Funds to all students who were in-residence at the time of the COVID-19 disruption, who were enrolled at half-time or greater status and who had a valid FAFSA on file with Valor Christian College. We estimate the amount to be: $1,500.00
Valor Christian College will disburse a lesser amount of Emergency Financial Aid Grant funds equally to all commuter students who were enrolled in on-ground courses at the time of the COVID-19 disruption, who were enrolled at half-time or greater status and who had a valid FAFSA on file with Valor Christian College. We estimate the amount to be: $750.00
