Victor Valley College Cares Act

Students: If you need a laptop to access and participate in your classes, have not been able to afford all the textbooks or access codes you need for your class(es), and/or if you/your family can use help with basic needs expenses, the college is providing additional CARES Act financial grants. You do not have to be receiving financial aid in order to apply. These funds are available for any currently registered student who has a need.
Funds will be prioritized to students who are registered, making progress toward a goal, and complete an application. Awards are made based on the number of units in which a student is enrolled.

12+ units = $500; 9 – 11 units = $400; 3 – 8 units = $300

Course materials and supplies = up to $300

Maximum per student: $500 per month, $1000 per semester

The college is committed to providing financial grants as long as funding is available.
Communication with students about their grants will be made via student email.
For the Spring, 2021 semester, the following calendar has been established to distribute $4 million HEERF (Round Two) CARES Act student financial grants and $507,734 MSI funds available to help students with course materials. The application will remain open throughout the semester. Students can use the following schedule to plan their grants based on the guidelines listed above.
