On March 27, 2020, Congress passed with bipartisan support the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which was signed into law by President Trump. As a part of this legislation, institutions of higher education were provided with funding to provide emergency financial aid grants to students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and child-care expenses.

NDMU distributed funding based on financial need to all undergraduate students who filed a FAFSA. Amounts varied based on an individual student’s circumstances.

Additional Information

On March 11, 2021, Congress passed the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP) which was signed into law by President Biden. As a part of this legislation, NDMU is informing students of the opportunity to receive a financial aid adjustment if you or your family’s financial situation has changed significantly from what is reflected on your federal income tax return (for example, if you’ve lost a job or otherwise experienced a drop in income). Students facing this situation should, if they have not already done so, file their FAFSA and subsequently may inquire with the Office of Financial Aid about completing a Professional Judgement Appeal.  

Professional Judgement refers to the authority of a school’s financial aid administrator to make adjustments to the data elements on the FAFSA.  The school does not have the authority to change the need analysis formula itself or to make direct adjustments to the Expected Family Contribution (EFC).  Instead, the school may make adjustments to the family’s income reported on the FAFSA as a result of the special circumstance.  The standardized federal student aid formula is then applied to the new data elements, yielding a new EFC figure.  

The preferred deadline for this application (including all required supporting documentation) is September 1, 2021.  Per federal regulations related to making adjustments to FAFSA data, consideration will not be given to applications and/or supporting documentation received after April 30, 2022, or two weeks prior to your last day of attendance, whichever occurs first.

Please be aware that not all professional judgements result in additional financial aid. The decision of the financial aid administrator is final and there is no another internal or external option to appeal.

Contact the Office of Financial Aid at FinancialAid@ndm.edu for more information or to inquire about your specific circumstance.
