The following information is provided to comply with the Department of Education’s CRRSA Act reporting requirements.

Report date: September 30, 2022, for 3rd Quarter 2022 HEERF I, II, III Funds

1. An acknowledgment that the institution signed and returned to the Department the Certification and Agreement and the assurance that the institution has used, or intends to use, no less than 50 percent of the funds received under the same conditions of Section 314(a)(1) of the CRRSA Act to provide Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students. Purdue University signed and returned the Certification and Agreement to the Department of Education on January 16, 2021.

2. The total amount of funds that the institution will receive or has received from the Department pursuant to the institution’s Certification and Agreement [for] Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students. $52,500,263.00

3. The total amount of Emergency Financial Aid Grants distributed to students under Section 314(a)(1) of the CRRSA Act as of the date of submission (i.e., as of the 30-day Report and this information must also be updated no later than 10 days after the end of each calendar quarter (September 30, December 31, March 31, and June 30)). $1,367..00 for Quarter 3, 2022.

4. The estimated total number of students at the institution eligible to participate in programs under Section 484 in Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 and thus eligible to receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students under the same conditions of Section 314(a)(1) of the CRRSA Act.  49,639 – unduplicated count of eligible students at Fall 2021 Census.

5. The total number of students who have received an Emergency Financial Aid Grant to students under Section 314(a)(1) of the CRRSA Act. 2 for Quarter 3, 2022.

6. The method(s) used by the institution to determine which students receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants and how much they would receive under Section 314(a)(1) of the CRRSA Act. An application has been maintained for each semester that requires the student to indicate which of the federally approved conditions for funding they meet and the dollar amount of impact they experienced. In accordance with the CRRSA Act, allowable expenses are related to the disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19 and include those incurred for housing, food, course materials, technology costs, health care, child care, and other expenses. The Financial Aid Office is also identifying potentially eligible students based on the student’s Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as a result of their FAFSA. The university selected a tiered funding approach in order to provide more substantial emergency grant amounts to our neediest students with eligible expenses while preserving our ability to provide emergency grants to students at higher EFC levels who applied for eligible expenses, as well.  Students had an alert added to their myPurdue account with information and a link to the CRRSA Funding Certification Form.

7. Any instructions, directions, or guidance provided by the institution to students concerning the Emergency Financial Aid Grants. The first email was sent to eligible students on March 9, 2021, with the following instructions to apply:

“We are reaching out to you because we have determined that you may have educational expenses related to COVID-19. The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund II was created to provide additional emergency grant funding for students that incurred COVID-related expenses on or after 12/27/2020.

Through the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act 2021 (CRRSA), students have an opportunity to recover related expenses for items such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and childcare. Since this funding will be provided to students as a grant, it is not required to be repaid.

To complete the reimbursement application, log into myPurdue, look under the Financial Aid tab and choose the Financial Aid Requirements channel to review and complete the CRRSA Funding Certification form.”

Can I qualify for additional aid if I am experiencing income loss due to COVID-19?

If you experience income loss, such as a job change or job loss due to COVID-19, contact the Division of Financial Aid to see if a special circumstance appeal is a possibility. A financial aid counselor will use the information that you provide to see if processing an appeal may change the student’s aid. Please note that you must be out of work or experiencing an income loss for at least 8 weeks for us to be able to consider it a special circumstance. 

Are there COVID-19 related benefits for federal student loan borrowers?

Current borrowers or borrowers in repayment should refer to the Department of Education’s COVID-19 FAQs for updates: https://studentaid.gov/announcements-events/coronavirus

What happens if my study abroad program is canceled?

Students should check with Purdue Study Abroad for any updates on programs

The fact that Purdue has frozen tuition for so long makes college very affordable.
