Students eligible for HEERFIII funds included all students matriculated in the Summer 2021 and Fall 2021 terms. International and undocumented students are now eligible to apply for HEERFIII funds.
The ARP required institutions to prioritize HEERFIII student aid grants to students with “exceptional need.” Award prioritization was based on student attestation of exceptional need as well as the Expected Family Contribution (EFC)- if present for a student who applied and otherwise confirmed being exceptionally needy by way of the online application and required attestation.
Emergency grants may be limited in number and amount due to funding constraints.
HOW TO APPLY
To apply for HEERFIII grant funds students logged into AUDIRECT:
HEERFIII student aid funds may be used by students for any component of their cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care) or childcare.
DETERMINATION OF AWARDS
Students completed an online application within a 10-day application period, attested to the need for funding (or that they did not), and identified one or many examples of their exceptional need. Award prioritization was based on student attestation of exceptional need as well as the Expected Family Contribution (EFC)- if present for a student who applied and otherwise confirmed being exceptionally needy by way of the online application. Awarding began with Priority Group 1 and proceeded through subsequent Priority Groups as indicated in the table below until funds were fully expended. Awards amounts were determined by the total number of eligible applicants and total funding available, with Priority group 1 being the neediest.
