Applications for CRRSAA funds will be reviewed after the deadline date (March 8, 2021). Award amounts will be determined after the application window closes and eligibility has been verified. The requirement from the federal government is to prioritize award amounts to students with exceptional need. *DU will use the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) process to determine citizenship/residency status.

If your application is approved, you will receive an email of your approval and the amount on or before March 22, 2021. Funds will be disbursed to you on or before March 26, 2021. The disbursement will be made by echeck.   

** An echeck is an electronic check that will be sent to your email address, and will be immediately available to you. You must download to print, or save to copy your echeck, then separately deposit it to your bank account. Echecks will only be sent to Dominican University's email addresses.

Special note: DU uses third-party vendor, Paymerang, to process payments. This is an approved vendor should you receive communications from them. 

Email if you have any questions.
