Policy for Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act


American Hair Academy will promptly distribute student funds evenly among the students enrolled due to the disruption of campus operations during the time of the coronavirus epidemic. American Hair Academy will have all students during this time who receive this grant, sign a statement that these funds will be used for eligible expenses such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care and child care. The students will also be given the opportunity to forego the grant payment if they have not been affected by the coronavirus. The student can e-mail or mail back to the school and the signed statement will be kept in their file.

American Hair Academy will report to DJA in a timely manner so that they may report to the Secretary thirty days (30) from the date of the certification and agreement or every forty-five (45) days thereafter or in such other additional form as the Secretary may specify, how grants were distributed to the students, the amount of each grant awarded to each student.


(Only Title IV students were eligible or if they filled out a 19/20 or 20/21 FAFSA. We divided the funds evenly among the eligible students and then used the lowest EFC for the remaining $6 at $1.00 each.)
