Message from President Wacker

Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) and American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP) are federal laws that provide money to students affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and economic downturn.

CRRSAA and ARP requires that the money distributed to eligible students is used for any component of the student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care) or child care.  We know that these have been challenging times, and we hope that these funds will assist you in your ability to continue and finish your degree and graduate.
