What is the CARES Act?

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act is a $2 trillion relief and stimulus package designed to address the economic impact caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. One part of the CARES Act creates the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF), which provides emergency financial aid grants to qualifying students for expenses caused by the disruption on their campus due to coronavirus.

How Much Money Will Each Student Receive as a CARES Act Financial Aid Grant?

The grant amounts issued to qualifying students will vary. Award amounts are determined by a formula that takes into account each student’s financial need as demonstrated by their Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as well as his or her proximity to campus. Students farther from campus may receive additional aid to offset expenses related to travel.

How Much Money Will Each Student Receive as a CARES Act Financial Aid Grant?

UTI will send students information regarding the grant process using their email addresses. The email will include a link to a certification form that should be reviewed and completed. The link is personalized to each student and can only be completed one time.

Following receipt of the certification form, UTI will issue grants to qualifying students in the form of a check. UTI will provide details to grant recipients regarding how and when to obtain the check using their email addresses. Please be advised that the submission of a certification form does not guarantee that a student will receive an emergency financial aid grant.

How Do Students Qualify for the CARES Act Financial Aid Grants?

Per the U.S. Department of Education, in order to receive an emergency student grant under the CARES Act, a student must:

  • Be an active student of the school (including an approved leave of absence).
  • Be eligible to receive federal student financial aid program funds that are authorized under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965.
  • Have expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19 (i.e., food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, child-care, etc.).
