Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund - Student Aid
The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) was established and initially funded through the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act to help institutions of higher education “prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus.” Subsequent legislation – the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA) and the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) – authorized additional funding for HEERF. HEERF is overseen and administered by the U.S. Department of Education.

PROFESSIONAL JUDGMENTS IN THE WAKE OF COVID-19
If your family’s financial situation has been significantly or permanently altered due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the income you reported on the 2021-2022 FAFSA is no longer accurate you may be able to have your financial aid package reviewed and professional judgment applied to adjust the data elements on your FAFSA. Results could positively impact the amount of federal student aid you receive for this aid year.
These circumstances may include:
Students requesting a Professional Judgment will be required to submit all relevant documentation, including 2020 income taxes, to be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Contact Financial Aid at 301.846.2620 or [email protected] for more information.
