Eligible Students for CARES Act HEERF

Per federal regulations, emergency financial aid grants under Section 18004(c) of the CARES Act may only be given to those who are or could be eligible to participate in programs under Section 484 in Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA).  In short, only students who are eligible to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) were eligible to receive the funding.  Students were also required to meet satisfactory academic progress requirements and could not be enrolled in a program offered 100% online. Furthermore, per guidance from the Texas A&M University System leadership, this funding was to be used to retain students for fall semester so that they could continue progress toward a degree.  Therefore, students that had applied to graduate in May or August were not eligible to receive this funding.
