Can I get additional funding to help with unforeseen expenses during COVID-19? How do I know if I qualify and how do I apply?

On Thursday, April 9, 2020, the U.S. Department of Education (ED) released details regarding its distribution of approximately $6 billion in emergency coronavirus assistance (Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund)  to postsecondary students. CCC would like to ensure impacted students receive some additional help to cover unforeseen expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic including (but not limited to) food, housing, technology, health care, child care, and course-related materials.

Only students who meet Title IV eligibility requirements are eligible to receive the emergency grant funds. Until we receive more guidance from the Department of Education on other alternatives, the easiest way for CCC to confirm a student is Title IV eligible is for the student to file either the 19-20 or 20-21 FAFSA. The FAFSA goes through the federal eligibility checks when processed. It is not necessary to be a financial aid recipient, however, you must meet the eligibility requirements to qualify for HEERF funding.

To fill out the HEERF application, you can apply through AcademicWorks at clovis.academicworks.com or you can fill out a paper application and either email it to finaid@clovis.edu or place it in the drop box outside of the front entrance on campus.


 

How do I purchase summer and fall textbooks?

CCC’s new bookstore webpage is now live! Visit clovisbookstore.com for all your summer and fall textbook needs. New merchandise will be added as it becomes available, so be sure to visit us often! For additional questions or bookstore questions, email bookstore@clovis.edu


 

What if I don’t have Internet or a computer for my online course? Or what if I have questions about my classes?

WiFi can be accessed in the west parking lot in front of the main entrance of CCC. Students should select CCC-Student-WiFi-Parking, and students will need their CCC username and password to access this WiFi. Please be mindful of social distancing as you are utilizing this service. If you are experiencing other obstacles with Internet access or needed technology to finish your classes, you should contact the Helpdesk at 575.769.4969 or HelpDesk@clovis.edu, and we will work with you to alleviate the obstacles so you can successfully complete.
