Panthers, see below for information regarding eligibility and application requirements to apply for COVID-19 Financial Assistance. Ohio Dominican has been awarded funds through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act and Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRSSA) to help mitigate the financial impact of the pandemic on students.

HEERF I – CARES Act Student Emergency Fund Information

The deadline to apply for CARES Act funds (HEERF I) was Friday, May 15, 2020. Click here for information on how these funds were distributed.

Ohio Dominican was recently awarded funds from the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act to help mitigate financial impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. ODU has emergency grants available to aid students who are struggling with living expenses or facing other unexpected financial challenges related to the disruption of campus operations due to this pandemic, including expenses such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care and child care.

Ohio Dominican recognizes the broad impacts of COVID-19 and is making these funds available to eligible undergraduate and graduate degree-seeking students.

Eligibility Requirements

Emergency grant aid will be awarded in accordance with federal, state and institutional rules and regulations.  Students can apply for emergency grants through the Emergency Request form. 

According to federal guidelines, recipients must meet the following criteria to be eligible:

  • Currently be an enrolled undergraduate or graduate student in a degree-granting program, or student pursuing initial teacher licensure
  • Not have been enrolled in exclusively online courses during the 2020 spring semester
  • Have completed the 2019-20 FAFSA demonstrating Title IV eligibility (U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen, valid social security number, etc.)
