The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) has provided multiple waves of funding to colleges and universities to assist students through cash grants and to support schools with costs incurred as a result of COVID-19.
All HEERF funding has been distributed to all eligible students.
Assistance may be available for students and families who have been financially impacted by COVID-19.
These impacts may include loss of a job, loss of income, increased medical expenses or a death in the immediate family.
The financial aid office will work closely with individual students and families to explore the possibility of additional state and federal aid, if appropriate.
You can request this assistance through the process outlined below:
Submit a letter from the student explaining your COVID-19-related hardship and its negative financial impact. The letter should state who (student and/or parent) has experienced the financial hardship, how much income has been lost, and it must be hand signed and dated. Letters should be submitted to Alma College’s financial aid submission uploads.
