Emergency Assistance to Students
COVID-19 Emergency Funding Update:
You may have heard that new federal funding is on the way to help students and universities through the continued disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are happy to report that the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA), 2021, enacted on December 27, 2020, will provide $22.7 billion for institutions of higher education. Our continued gratitude goes to our legislators for making this assistance available.
Washington State University has not received our portion of this funding just yet, and we await details on the criteria we should use to distribute and use this funding.
The Student Financial Services will communicate directly with students when funding becomes available and provide any necessary instructions to qualify for and receive this assistance.
More information will be posted to the Student Care Network about the CRRSAA funding and how students can qualify, once this information is available. For more information on this or to seek help with challenges due to Covid-19 or related issues, please see the Student Care Network page.
Initial CARES Funding: Effective October 9, 2020, Washington State University has exhausted all CARES Act emergency funding for students. Please see note above regarding CRRSAA funding.
