Statement from Dr. Tim Faltyn, President of Oklahoma Panhandle State University
We are excited to announce that the applications for the Panhandle State CARES Student Aid Grants are now available. Even though not all of our students who need assistance will be eligible per the U. S. Department of Education guidelines, we are so thankful for the funds to help as many students as we can.
Panhandle State CARES Student Aid Grants
We understand that the disruption to daily life caused by COVID-19 includes financial hardships for many in the Aggie Family. With federal funding and guidelines now available by the CARES Act, OPSU is able to provide some financial assistance to our students who have been economically impacted by this global pandemic.
Panhandle State CARES Student Aid Grant eligibility is determined by the U.S. Department of Education. Students must be eligible to receive Title IV funding as set forth by the Higher Education Act, as amended, in order to be considered for this grant in accordance with Department of Education requirements.
To be eligible for Aggie CARES Grant you must be a degree student registered for at least one “in person” class in the Spring 2020 semester. Students concurrently enrolled are not eligible for the CARES Grant per U.S. Department of Education policy.
Students who apply and meet all U.S. Department of Education requirements will be awarded a one-time grant in the following amounts:
Full Time Students: $675
Part Time Students: $375
Full Time and Part Time status are determined in accordance with Title IV regulations as set forth by the Higher Education Act. Disbursement will be credited to the student’s bursar account. The Office of Bursar will issue grant awards by direct deposit or paper check.
OPSU students should complete the short application form at my.opsu.edu to be considered for the emergency financial aid. Students will need their student ID number to apply.
If you are eligible to, but have not completed your FAFSA, you can do so at https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa.
