To help ensure you have the necessary resources to complete your Spring 2020 coursework, the recently passed CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act) provides emergency financial aid grant for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus. Emergency financial aid grant funding can be requested to cover Food, Housing, Transportation, Course Materials, Technology, Health Care and Child Care.
To qualify to request emergency financial aid grant funding, you must have been enrolled at Terra State Community College (credit or non-credit) for spring semester 2020 and eligible for participation in Section 484 of the Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (possess U.S. citizenship or be an eligible noncitizen; have a valid Social Security number; be registered with Selective Service [if the student is male]; and possess a high school diploma / GED / completion of high school in an approved homeschool setting). Funds will be distributed according to a variety of factors including determined need and consideration of special circumstances.
You may submit multiple requests during the duration of the emergency, but funding is limited. You are encouraged to include as many of the allowable expenses which apply in your initial request, and include documentation as available.
Submit your completed form to Todd Long, Associate Dean of Students, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Have you thought about adding one more class to your fall schedule to help save money, get better grades, and stay on track to graduate?
15 is the number of credits you need to take each semester to graduate on time!
Statistics show that students who earn 15 credits per semester are more likely to finish college on time and earn better grades.
Of course, you can take less and still receive scholarships and funding. But taking 15 credits a semester (or 30 credits a year) accelerates your graduation, saves money overall, and increases your chances of achieving your personal and professional goals. Contact your Advisor today to schedule an appointment to discuss your options at 419.559.2345. Learn more at https://completecollege.org/strategy/15-to-finish/.
