The Department of Education has allocated funding, known as the CARES Act, directly to institutions to help alleviate the
effect on your academic experience due to the COVID-19 pandemic. CEI has received the CARES Act funds to directly support
students who have been impacted and to help pay for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations.
CARES Grant Eligibility Requirements: A current degree seeking student at CEI, attended the Spring 2020 term, registered for
six (6) or more credits, making Satisfactory Academic Progress, be eligible to participate in Title IV programs.
In order to be eligible for the CARES Act funding or Emergency Funding Grant, a student must be Title IV eligible.
Title IV eligibility is best determined by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2019-2020
year. CEI recommends students complete the FAFSA for the quickest evaluation of Title IV eligibility.
I have now completed the 2019-2020 FAFSA, and would like to be considered for the CARES Act Grant.
I attended the Spring 2020 term and was registered for at least six (6) or more credits.
