CARES Act Update

Mid-America Christian University returned to the Department of Education the executed “Funding Certification and Agreement for Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Student under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, Economy Security (CARES) Act” on April 22, 2020. The University received notice on April 27, 2020, that we had received an award of $358,376.00.  This amount represents fifty percent of the total refunds to be received by the University until Section 18004(a)(1) and will be used by the University to provide emergency financial aid to students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the coronavirus.

The Department of Education has stipulated that the following criteria must be met for eligibility. 

An eligible student must:

  • be enrolled as an undergraduate or graduate student at MACU
  • be a U.S. Citizen or an Eligible Non-Citizen who is eligible for Title IV funding
  • have a valid Social Security Number (SSN)
  • have submitted a FAFSA for the 2019-2020 school year and determined to be eligible to receive Title IV funds
  • not have been enrolled in all-online courses only on March 13, 2020
  • not have defaulted on a student loan
  • not owe grant refunds
  • be maintaining satisfactory academic progress as required for Title IV funds
  • not be concurrently enrolled in elementary or secondary (high school)

The University determined all of the students that were eligible under the HEERF guidelines would receive a portion of the student grant. The distribution amounts were determined based on the disruption of campus operations due to the coronavirus. This included courses no longer being offered on campus, inability to live on campus, and inability to continue to participate in the campus meal plans. Additionally, a change in access to course materials, technology, healthcare, and child care was considered when determining the student’s possible expenses related to the disruption of campus operations. 

The University communicated with those students who were eligible to receive these funds.  Students were given an opportunity to update their addresses and/or provide direct deposit information to ensure the funds could be provided to the student as quickly as possible.  Emergency grant funds were disbursed directly to students during the dates of May 13-20, 2020.

Below are the details of the usage of the HEERF funds as of 5/20/20:

  • Total Amount of Funds Allocated to MACU: $358,376.00
  • Total Amount of Funds Distributed to students as of 5/20/2020:  $365,250.00
  • Estimated number of students to whom funds were distributed: 390
  • Estimated number of students who were eligible for the HEERF student grant: 390

SPRING 2021 EMERGENCY GRANTS: HEERF II

The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF II), as part of the federal Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA), provided additional money to colleges and universities to prevent, prepare and respond to COVID-19.    A portion of these funds is earmarked for distribution as emergency student grants for costs that arose due to COVID-19, including tuition, food, housing, health care, or child care. 

Unlike the CARES Act (HEERF I), institutions are required to prioritize grants to students with exceptional financial needs, such as those who receive federal Pell Grants (need-based grants).  Unlike CARES funds, the HEERF II funds can be awarded to online students as well and, can be applied to a student’s outstanding account balance if the student provides written (or electronic), affirmative consent.  Students must meet the following criteria for consideration for HEERF II funds:

  • Demonstrate significant financial need with preference given to Pell-eligible students (to determine this, MACU required all students to be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and have 2020-2021 FAFSA on file)
  • Be enrolled as a degree-seeking student on-campus or online program for the spring 2021 semester.

Please note that by federal guidelines, international and undocumented (DACA) students are not eligible to receive HEERF II funds.

Below are the details of the usage of the HEERF II funds as of 04/30/21:

  • Total Amount of HEERF II Emergency Grant Funds Allocated to MACU: $358,376.00
  • Total Amount of HEERF II Funds Distributed to students as of 04/30/2021:  $214,453.49
  • Estimated number of students who applied for HEERF II funds: 118
  • Estimated number of students to whom funds were distributed: 118
  • Estimated number of students who were eligible for the HEERF student grant: 1623

Below are the details of the usage of the HEERF II funds as of 06/30/21:

  • Total Amount of HEERF II Emergency Grant Funds Allocated to MACU: $358,376.00
  • Total Amount of HEERF II Funds Distributed to students as of 06/30/2021:  $358,376.00
  • Estimated number of students who applied for HEERF II funds: 191
  • Estimated number of students to whom funds were distributed: 191
  • Estimated number of students who were eligible for the HEERF student grant: 1633

2021-2022 EMERGENCY GRANTS: HEERF III

The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP) was signed on March 11, 2021, and includes approximately $39.6 billion for the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) and represents the third stream of funding appropriated for HEERF to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus. Mid-America Christian University was awarded $3,218,585.00 in total HEERF III funds.

The HEERF III program requires at least half of the institution’s allocation under ARP (a)(1) must be used to make emergency financial aid grants to students. The minimum amount that was calculated by the Department of Education that the Mid-America Christian University must use for financial aid grants to students must be at least $1,698,958.00 

What is different with HEERF III?

Students who are or were enrolled in an institution of higher education on or after the date of the declaration of the national emergency due to the coronavirus (March 13, 2020) are eligible for emergency financial aid grants from the HEERF, regardless of whether they completed a FAFSA or are eligible for Title IV. The CRRSAA requires that institutions prioritize students with exceptional needs, such as students who receive Pell Grants or are undergraduates with extraordinary financial circumstances, in awarding emergency financial aid grants to students.

Which students are eligible to receive HEERF III emergency financial aid grants?

As announced in the Department’s final rule, “Eligibility To Receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students Under HEERF” (May 14, 2021, 86 FR 26608) (final rule), the term “student,” for purposes of the phrases “grants to students,” “emergency financial aid grants to students,” and “financial aid grants to students” as used in the HEERF programs, is now defined as any individual who is or was enrolled (as defined in 34 CFR § 668.2) at an eligible institution (as defined in 34 CFR § 600.2) on or after March 13, 2020, the date of declaration of the national emergency due to the coronavirus (85 FR 15337). Thus, students are no longer required to be eligible for Title IV student financial aid in order to receive HEERF grants to students.

  • Students must be enrolled for the semester they are applying for emergency grant funds. Students taking non-credit courses are not eligible.
  • Students must complete an online HEERF III Emergency Relief Grant Application by the established deadline.
  • Have expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the coronavirus, including the eligible fees under a student’s cost of attendance such as tuition, food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, child care, mental or health expenses.

How do students receive their HEERF III emergency financial aid grants?

Mid-America Christian University is working to distribute HEERF III Emergency Relief Grants to eligible students who have been impacted by the COVID 19 Pandemic. Students can submit a request for these emergency funds by completing the online form beginning June 25, 2021.  The application will continue to be accepted as long as funds are available.

Students have two options if found eligible to receive the grant funds:

(1) Students can authorize MACU to apply the HEERF III Emergency Relief Grant to their student account and any current institutional charges.  Any excess funds remaining after applying to eligible charges will be distributed to the student. 

(2) Students can choose to have HEERF III Emergency Relief Grant distributed directly to them.

If you have questions or concerns about HEERF III Relief Grant funding or the application process, please contact the Office of Financial Aid or email questions to [email protected].
