CARES Act FAQ
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Securities Act (CARES Act) is federal legislation providing financial support to individuals and businesses affected by the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) pandemic. One part of this federal program allocates money to CBC, and a portion of that allocation is to be awarded to students who are experiencing financial hardships due to the coronavirus.
CARES Act recipients must have demonstrated eligibility to participate in programs under Section 484 of the Higher Education Act (HEA), which is determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
No. Under the CARES Act, funding is disbursed directly to YOU, the student! You'll be responsible for paying your tuition once you receive the funds. It's also important to note that any CARES awards issued to you may not cover your full tuition balance. If you have questions about your payment options, please contact Hawk Central.
