NAU posted on its website that applications for phase two of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act will open in November for students to apply.
The first phase of the CARES Act distributed in the spring with the university awarding approximately 52% of its funds according to the NAU CARES Act website with the second phase set to distribute in the fall.
Eligible students are required to have a 2020-2021 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application on file for eligibility of this aid. Those eligible will receive an email when the application is available for submission.
Once the form is completed and submitted, students can expect funds to distribute via check or direct deposit. Students are advised to check their LOUIE account to confirm information regarding their direct deposit or mailing address.
The NAU CARES Act website stated funds will not be restricted should a student have current charges on their account.
Further information regarding the CARES Act can be found on the NAU website.
