The selection process
Students complete an application for the Hardship Grant, providing any documentation available that illustrates need. The Financial Aid Office reviews their federal aid eligibility based on Title IV guidelines and approves funds. Then payments are approved by the Business Office before being sent as a cash deposit to the student. OC has approximately 1,900 students eligible for application.
As of June 25, 2020, 835 students were awarded grants. Of those students 202 were non-CARES Act applicant, Pell Grant recipients. The CARES Act funded $810,786 to OC students. This amount has been awarded to students who demonstrated financial impact related to the coronavirus.
