2 – Known Student Case(s)

1 – Known Employee Case(s)

*These data only include students and employees at Oklahoma Panhandle State University. It is important to note that an active case does not necessarily mean that the individual is currently on campus, has visited the campus while infected, or has ever been on campus. To the best of our ability, we will not include students who are taking online classes unless they live on campus. Once a student or employee is identified as an active case, campus officials follow CDC and university protocols in advising the student or employee to isolate for the recommended number of days. The State Department of Health tracks official numbers of cases in the county where our campus is located and the surrounding area on the state COVID website: https://looker-dashboards.ok.gov/embed/dashboards/44

Emergency Relief Financial Aid

The U.S. Department of Education announced additional funding allocated to the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund II (HEERF II) by the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA), which was signed into law on Dec. 27, 2020. OPSU is also able to provide additional financial assistance with this funding to our students who have been economically impacted by this global pandemic through the federally funded CARES Act.

Student eligibility for financial assistance through the Panhandle State CARES Student Aid Grant is determined by the U.S. Department of Education. Students enrolled in the Fall and/or Spring 2021 semesters are eligible to apply for the funds. At this time, international and non-citizens students are not eligible for the funds.
