Re: CARES Act funds for students

Neosho, MO – Crowder College is pleased to announce that as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the college will receive federal funds to distribute directly to students experiencing financial challenges because of the COVID-19 outbreak.

“Students across the nation have experienced a very challenging time during COVID-19.  Not only has the delivery of instruction for them changed over the last month and classes have moved from face-to-face to online, but they have experienced challenges in their personal lives.  Many students have families to help during this pandemic and may be teaching their own children at home while they are also participating in classes as students.  It is nice that the federal government has also identified this concern as a priority and is providing financial assistance to the students,” stated Dr. Glenn Coltharp, Crowder College President.

Once the funds are made available to the College they will be distributed directly to students to provide help covering expenses related to a student’s cost of attendance, food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and child care. To qualify, students must be eligible to apply for federal Title IV financial aid and must meet enrollment requirements for the Spring 2020 semester

Crowder College is continuing classes using online methods for the spring semester. Summer courses have been scheduled online without the expensive of distance learning fees accessed  due to the current situation.
