CARES Act Fund 03/18/2021

CARES Act Fund

Last night, our Office of Financial Assistance and Veterans Affairs sent individual messages to students who are eligible to receive funding from the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) Act: Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund.

As that message explains, CARES Act: Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund funding is a component of the stimulus package provided by the federal government. It is intended to support students who are enrolled in college during the spring semester 2021.

Here are some key points about this funding:

• These funds are provided to students so that they can use them for their own highest and greatest need.
• They will be available to students as a refund from their student account.
• The most efficient way for students to receive these funds is to set up a direct deposit. Then, the College can place the funds directly into that account. If students have not already set-up direct deposit, please sign in to eBill and click on “Electronic Refunds” to complete this process.
• If students do not have direct deposit, the funds will be sent to them in the form of a check. Please note, this may take several days for processing.

This year’s CARES funds can be applied to students’ balances due at the College, with their permission. If students would like these funds to apply to their current semester’s balance, please go to https://secure.touchnet.com/C20590_ustores/web/product_detail.jsp?PRODUCTID=956&SINGLESTORE=true and opt in. If students are choosing this option, please do so before 5:00 p.m. (EST) on Monday, March 22, 2021. Funds should be posted to your CofC student account during the week of March 22.

It’s our hope that these resources provide needed and beneficial support to our students during this difficult time. If students have questions about the disbursement of these funds, please contact the Office of the Treasurer at [email protected].

CARES Act Fund By choosing the “YES” option in the drop-down box below, I authorize College of Charleston to apply any and all CARES funding that I am eligible to receive to any balance still due for the Spring 2021 semester. This authorization only applies to funding I am to receive in March 2021. I understan...

Spring 2021 Academic Calendar - College of Charleston Spring 2021 Academic Calendar

[02/05/21]   Forward and Back
Commemorating the 250th Anniversary of the College of Charleston

by Gary Jackson

It started with barracks refashioned to hold
students instead of soldiers. It started with water

to halt the fires the city could not yet extinguish.
It started with cornerstone, with brick

built by black hands who were not allowed
to enter the very halls they erected, not allowed

to sign their own names, except by fingerprints
in the bricks that adorn downtown markets and homes

along cobblestone and herringbone. We built
this college under Charleston’s eyes—

with her wreath and scepter, her promises
to defend us. Her words, Wisdom is liberty,

as people decided who was allowed to learn
and who was not. 250 years later

we’re still learning, still standing
through revolutions and wars,

hurricanes and floods, presidents
and educators shaping the future for all of us

who walk and sometimes stumble
on these paths well-worn from years of use.

Let us look forward, let the Spanish moss fall
as we trace our hands along the brick, mortar,

and stone that hold the bittersweet history
of our ancestors who built towards a better world

here, with all of us in it.

Gary Jackson is an associate professor in the Department of English.

The Academic Advising and Planning Center will host virtual Quick Question Drop-In (QQDI) from 1:00 p.m.- 4:00 p.m. Monday-Friday through the last day of classes, April 21. QQDI is staffed by highly trained Peer Advisors and is designed for questions that are quick in nature. See https://advising.cofc.edu/about-the-center/qqdi.php for more details and what qualifies. Students may call 843-953-5981 to be connected to a Peer Advisor.

All appointments will be held virtually. Again, students may call 843-953-5981 to be added to the queue. Wait time will depend on the volume of appointment requests at the time of the call, but is typically not very long.
