HEERF Report 6/2/21
West Chester University has received the third installment of the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF III) from the American Rescue Plan. After reviewing updated guidance for these funds, a decision was made by university leadership to award all degree-seeking students who were enrolled for the spring term using the following award procedures:
- Students who were enrolled for spring 2021 and had a Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of 9,999 or less from the 2021 FAFSA were awarded a one-time grant of $1700.00.
- Students who did not file a 2021 FAFSA or had an EFC higher than 9,999 were awarded a one-time grant of $600.00.
These emergency grants are meant to assist with the cost of attending West Chester University as well as any expenses you incurred from the COVID-19 pandemic including: childcare, health coverage, transportation, and the cost of living.
Students who meet the outlined criteria should review their "Account Summary" in the "Student Financials" section of MyWCU.
