    1. William Edge Institute has determined that all currently enrolled students have experienced disruption and additional costs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Federal law states that funds can be awarded to ALL students. This includes students who are not Title IV eligible and students enrolled in distance education programs.
    2. Students were informed that funds can be used for any component of COA or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care) or childcare. There is no longer a requirement that the cost be associated with a disruption of campus operations.
    3. If an institution obtains a student’s written (or electronic) affirmative consent, an institution is permitted to apply these grants directly to the student’s institutional account; however, students must be informed that they retain the option to receive a direct disbursement of the financial aid grant and that an institution may not require that the grant be applied to the student’s account.
      To ensure we met this requirement all students received a check for the amount awarded based on their category. Student were told, these fund could be used for tuition however regardless of their balance is was not a requirement to receive the grant. Any students wishing to use the funds as tuition could simply endorse the check and return it to the school administrator to be applied toward their balance.
    4. Schools must prioritize disbursing of these funds to students with exceptional need such as PELL eligible students. Students are not, however, required to be PELL eligible. William Edge Institute used the following categories to determine need:
      • Category I, included all cash pay only students and any student enrolled with VA benefits.
      • Category II, included any student receiving PELL Grants with an EFC higher than zero (0).
      • Category III, included any student receiving PELL Grants with a zero (0) EFC.
