The Department of Education has released guidance that limits CARES Act Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students that have submitted a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Help is available if you need assistance completing your FAFSA; see attached instructions. Following the Department of Education’s guidance, we have established a simple online form for you to acknowledge that the disruption to campus operations has had a financial impact on you and your household. We ask that you complete this application so that as soon as YVC receives these Emergency Financial Aid Grants we can begin to award them. These funds will be delivered to you via Bank Mobile. Instructions are attached to this email in case you did not set up a preference for receiving a refund.
