Tuition, Fees and Financial Aid
Since mid-March, UVA has provided eligible students with emergency hardship support through the CARES Act Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) for expenses related to the disruption of on-Grounds operations due to COVID-19. Awards have included funding for technology, food support, household incidentals and COVID related health expenses. CARES funding is available for winter/spring until the funds are depleted.
All undergraduate, graduate and professional students who are enrolled or planning to enroll in courses for the spring 2021 term, and who have successfully completed a FAFSA (available at fafsa.ed.gov) for the 2020-2021 academic year, can request funding for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the pandemic. Please note that Winter/Spring CARES Act funding is limited and each student may submit only one application during this time period.
Students should apply for Winter/Spring 2021 CARES funding by completing the emergency funding application below. Netbadge login credentials are required.
For WINTER BREAK funding:
Due to the University’s closure from December 21 through January 3, CARES funding will be processed on December 21 and 28 only. Students must have signed up for direct deposit to ensure receipt of funding during the break. Applications received by December 17 will result in payments being initiated on December 22. Applications received after December 17 and before December 24 will result in payments being initiated on December 29. Payments are typically deposited to students’ bank accounts within 2-4 business days after they are initiated.
Daily processing will resume on January 4.
Any questions related to emergency funding due to COVID-19 disruption should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. This email will be monitored throughout the winter break.
