Will this funding reduce or change my financial aid award with QCC?

Federal emergency funds received through the CARES Act, CRRSAA, or ARP will not impact your financial aid award, due to a special exception in federal law. 

However, emergency funds received from the QCC Foundation, some state sources, or the Institution are considered a resource for the student and must fit into a student’s financial aid award, if they have one. If you have already received a financial aid award that meets your financial aid need and/or your Cost of Attendance, we may be required to reduce other funds. QCC will reduce student loan funds before other grants when required.  Because most emergency funds are refunded to the student regardless of any balance due, in rare cases, required adjustments can create a balance due to the College. You will receive a revised award letter any time a change is made to your Financial Aid Award.
