KGI has received federal funding from the U.S. Department of Education through the CARES Act, which provides some assistance for student expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19. Students whose lives have been disrupted or who are experiencing financial hardships may be eligible for reimbursement of the following expenses:
- Course materials
- Childcare expenses
How do I apply?
You will receive an email asking you to “opt-in” or “opt out” of this program, and it will ask you to confirm your eligibility as described below.
Am I eligible for CARES Act funding?
You may be eligible for CARES Act funding if you are enrolled in at least one face-to-face course during the spring 2020 semester.
Per the U.S. Department of Education, international, dual credit, non-U.S.-citizen students and students enrolled exclusively in online courses prior to March 13, 2020 are not eligible for CARES Act funding. If you do not currently have financial aid through KGI, you may be required to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
