Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act

Emergency financial aid grants from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund, which is part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, were not allocated to Walden University. The CARES Act made funding available to assist in the transition of on-the-ground courses to distance education and assist campus-based students who experienced disruption when college campuses closed abruptly. With more than 50 years of experience as a leader in distance and online education, Walden offers programs primarily online and, as such, did not receive any monies from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund that could be provided to students as emergency financial aid grants.

Federal Student Aid recipients who withdraw due to COVID-19 reasons may be eligible for CARES Act withdrawal relief. More information is available on the Walden Student Finance Portal.

Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021

Emergency financial aid grants from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF II), which is part of the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (2021 Appropriations Act), were allocated to Walden University students based on Walden’s relative share of Federal Pell Grant recipients. The 2021 Appropriations Act made funding available to distance education students. Walden has been allocated a relatively small share of the monies available under the HEERF II, which may be available as emergency financial aid grants. Walden will notify students who are eligible.

Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund Reporting

The Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA), which was enacted on December 27, 2020, provided Higher Education Emergency Grant Funding (HEERF) II to be distributed to students with exceptional need. On February 5, 2021, Walden University signed and returned the Certification Agreement for the student portion to the U.S. Department of Education (DOE), and, on March 12, 2021, Walden University was authorized to use $182,068 in HEERF II funding under CRRSAA (a)(4) for emergency grants to students with exceptional need.

Walden University prioritized eligibility to undergraduate, Title IV eligible students who were enrolled full-time as regular students and received a full-time Pell Grant disbursement between March 1, 2021, and May 21, 2021. There were 356 total students eligible to receive emergency grants. The $182,068 allocation was divided equally, and each of the 356 students who met the criteria received a $511.42 grant. One student received $513.90 from HEERF II.

The selected students were notified by email on June 16, 2021 and June 21, 2021, that the grant was awarded to them and could be used for any component of their cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, healthcare (including mental health care) or childcare. As of June 30, 2021, Walden University completed the disbursement of $182,068 in emergency financial aid grants to 356 eligible students.
