NW-SCC to disburse $1M in CARES funds

Northwest-Shoals Community College President Dr. Glenda Colagross announced in an email to students earlier this week that $1,034,735 from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act will be mailed by May 27 to eligible students based on guidelines issued by the U.S. Department of Education.

The CARES funds are targeted to provide economic relief for students who were enrolled in one or more on-campus, traditional classroom courses when COVID-19 measures were instituted and instruction was moved to online or alternative delivery methods. According to NW-SCC, the school will distribute CARES funds to 1,455 students – approximately 46 percent of students enrolled in the 2020 spring semester.

Students receiving checks must be eligible as defined by USDOE guidelines and may use the funds “for expenses under a student’s cost of attendance, such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care and childcare.”

Students can update their mailing and other information at https://www.nwscc.edu/current-students/nw-scc-change-of-information-form.
