CARES Act Student Aid

CARES Act Student Aid

The federal government has provided monetary relief to college students called CARES Act Student Aid.  Villa Maria College will distribute these funds to assist students who have experienced a financial hardship due to the Coronavirus.  Students may use this aid for eligible expenses under a student’s cost of attendance, which are: food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and childcare. Students can apply for funding starting immediately through June 30, 2020. Awards will be sent directly to students via check or ACH deposit beginning two weeks from the opening application date through July 15, 2020.  All students are encouraged to apply.  

CARES Act funding will be distributed to those who apply using a weighted percentage based on financial need and enrollment status.  

  • Full time Pell eligible students – $1,003
  • Full time non-Pell eligible students – $754
  • Part time Pell eligible students – $503
  • Part time non-Pell eligible students – $377
