The emergency assistance will be disbursed during the week of Feb. 22 to approximately 3,370 winter term students. These funds will not be applied to current or future balances; the funds are being distributed directly to students. Students accepting these funds must confirm they will be used for food, housing, course materials, health care, child care, technology-related expenses, transportation and/or other expenses incurred related to the disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19 pandemic.
During spring term, RCC will issue an additional $1.26 million of emergency assistance to enrolled students. This emergency assistance is funded through the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA).
