CARES Act Emergency Funding Reminder (student email)

TU students and May graduates:

The University of Tulsa has received funds from the Department of Education to provide emergency financial aid grants to our students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), which established and funds the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF), covers expenses such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care and child care.

Only students 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), are eligible to receive the HEERF emergency financial aid grants. If you do not already have a valid FAFSA on file, you should complete one to demonstrate your eligibility for these funds.

HEERF Application
Applications for the HEERF emergency financial aid grant must be received by 11:59 p.m. (Central) on Monday, May 25, 2020.

If you are eligible to receive this emergency financial aid grant, you will be emailed a notification of the award the week of June 1. If your bursar account is set up for automatic deposit, funds will be deposited directly into your account; if not, a check will be mailed to you. Please make sure the mailing address you have on file is up to date.

If you do not meet the requirements for this fund and have extenuating circumstances surrounding COVID-19, you may apply for funding from TU’s Student Emergency Scholarship. For more information, please email finaid@utulsa.edu.
