SU has received additional federal Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds (HEERF II) for 2021. These funds will help eligible SU students with relevant educational and living expenses including tuition, fees, books and supplies, housing, food, internet and computer expenses, personal and transportation expenses, health care, child care and other emergency costs that arise due to the coronavirus.

CARES Emergency Student Grant

Members of the SU Community:

In March, Congress passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which included funding to assist students through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund. SU has been granted a pool of CARES Act Emergency Grant funds to provide emergency financial aid grants to students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the coronavirus.

Additional CARES Act funding has been allocated for SU emergency aid applications. Students meeting enrollment, U.S. citizenship and satisfactory academic progress requirements who are Title IV eligible and have incurred an economic hardship or expenses due to the disruption of campus activities directly related to COVID-19 may apply for reimbursement through this fund.
