The Moving Forward Fund was created to help students who are adversely affected by COVID-19. Current funds can be used by students enrolled in the Spring 2020 semester who are unable to meet unexpected financial burdens resulting from the coronavirus. Monies can be used for emergency support for various expenses, such as housing, food, travel, and technology. If you are requesting funds for either the Summer or Fall 2020 semester, please indicate this on the application. Students who are eligible for funds for either the Summer or Fall semester will be awarded at a later date.

Students should have exhausted all resources available to them before completing this application. If you are unsure if you have resources available that you have not utilized please check the financial aid tab on Owl Express or email

To apply for financial hardship relief, please complete the Moving Forward Application.

Please note, individual circumstances and the volume of student requests will impact processing.

It may take 5-7 business days to receive a full response on your application.
