Higher Education Emergency Relief (Formerly CARES Act) Funds: Central Piedmont Student Relief Grants
Central Piedmont has received funding from the U.S. Department of Education to support eligible students with costs of attendance or emergency costs caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
To be eligible for a Central Piedmont Student Relief Grant, you must:
- be a current student at Central Piedmont. Central Piedmont will verify that you are an active student attending classes when you apply for funds.
- have eligible cost of attendance or emergency expenses caused by the pandemic (such as food, housing, course materials, transportation, technology, health care, and child care).
- College and Career Readiness students, you must be currently enrolled and have attended class (in-person, synchronous virtual or asynchronous learning) for at least 12 hours.
- Continuing education students, you must be enrolled in at least 12 hours of occupationally-related courses. You are not eligible to apply if you are taking personal enrichment or short-duration continuing education courses (example: notary). You are also not eligible if you get a fee waiver through your employer or a corporate sponsorship.
You can still be eligible to receive a Central Piedmont Student Relief Grant if you:
- owe a balance to Central Piedmont. The college will not deduct any fees from your Central Piedmont Student Relief Grant, but any outstanding balances will remain on your account.
- receive support from another Central Piedmont Emergency Grant.
