POLICY AND PROCEDURES for the CARES Act
As a result of the recent pandemic, the US government has made emergency funds available to students. Southeast Texas Career Institute will administer those funds to students that have filled out the COVID-19 Certification form and are eligible.
It is the intent of Southeast Texas Career Institute to allow each student to answer the question of a changing family financial situation due to coronavirus which will make that student eligible to receive funds.
Once all Certification Forms are returned, we will calculate how many students indicate need and divide that number by the total amount of funds that are to be distributed to students.
This emergency student funding is only available to students that are enrolled and attending classes as of 03/16/2020. Students on an Approved Leave of Absence are also allowed to participate in the survey and receive funds.
Southeast Texas Career Institute feels this is the best way to distribute these funds and the most effective way to make sure that those that need the help get it. We will not discriminate in the disbursement of funds.
