FVTC will determine student eligibility based on the Department of Education guidelines and distribute funding through an automatic distribution process for Fall 2022.
Automatic Distribution Payments
Based on the limited remaining ARP grant funding ARP a distribution will be made to students who demonstrate exceptional financial need as demonstrated by the following factors:
- FAFSA submission date
- PELL grant eligibility EFC of 0 on the 2022-2023 FAFSA (EFC = expected family contribution as determined on the students 2022-2023 FAFSA)
- Enrollment in eligible credit bearing classes of 1 credit or more
Credits are calculated based on standing at the time of distribution. No adjustments will be made for the addition or dropping of courses after the distribution is made.
Distribution of the funds remaining will be made to students who meet the eligibility guidelines listed above until funds have been fully disbursed based on the matrix shown below:
|Pell Grant Recipient (EFC 0-5845)
Based on the funds remaining not every student with a 0 EFC on the 2022-2023 FAFSA will receive funds.
Students eligible for automatic distribution of ARP grant funding that owe a balance on their FVTC account from a prior semester will receive an ARP Grant Authorization Form via their FVTC email allowing the student to indicate that they would like their ARP grant funding to be applied to their balance. We request that this form be returned within 10 days so that we can promptly disburse the ARP grant funding based on your selection. If FVTC does not receive your ARP Grant Authorization Form within 10 days, automatic disbursement will be made via direct deposit to the account listed in eFAS or via paper check to the address listed on file with FVTC. If you do not have a balance on your account you will not receive an ARP Grant Authorization Form.
If you have any questions, we encourage you to contact a Student Finance Navigator at SFHelp@fvtc.edu.
