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, 790 students were awarded grants, 202 were non-applicant, Pell Grant recipients. The $809,586 made available to OC students via the CARES Act has been awarded to applicants who demonstrated financial impact of the coronavirus.
