CAREs Act Emergency Funds

From recent conversations through the media, you all may be aware that the Federal government has designated a portion of the CAREs Act as Emergency Funds to be disbursed to students as emergency financial aid grants. The purpose of these emergency financial aid grants is to help cover expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus.

At this time, please know that we at Mayland Community College are diligently working through guidance from both federal and state government, as well as the Department of Education, to determine how to access these funds and the criteria for disbursing the funds. We are learning more every day and we will be sure to share this information with our students and community when it is made available to us. Please be sure to check our website for this update as well as other coronavirus updates.

For updated information in regard to CAREs Act Emergency Funds, please visit https://www.mayland.edu/financial-aid/scholarships/.

Important Dates

Summer 2020 Financial Aid Disbursement Schedule
Month Course Start Dates Scheduled Refund Date
July Courses beginning on or before June 01 July 3, 2020

Financial aid will be disbursed based upon the start date of each course.

Following are common situations that result in the reduction of financial aid:
  • Student is attempting a previously passed course for the third time.
  • Student is taking a course that is not part of his/her program of study.
  • Student is issued a no show grade.
  • Student officially withdraws or is administratively withdrawn on or before the census date (10% point of a particular course).
  • Student is enrolled in the Welding Technology Diploma or Practical Nursing Diploma (LPN). These programs are subject to the Department of Education’s clock hour to credit hour conversion, making the programs eligible for partial financial aid.
  • Student is enrolled in the Basic Law Enforcement Training Certificate (BLET). This program is subject to the Department of Education’s clock hour calculations, which means the student will receive financial aid based on their hours of completion for the program.

Class attendance directly impacts financial aid eligibility.
