Financial Hardship

Response to COVID19


For those students and their families that have been financially affected by the current pandemic, we have a few resources that you might find helpful.

Students that are currently enrolled during the 2020-2021 academic year may be considered for additional financial aid if their parent(s) have experienced the loss of a job, or severe reduction in 2020 income as a result of a layoff or shutdown, as well as illness related to the Corona virus.  Feel free to use the following appeal form to request a reevaluation of your financial aid application.
