Subject: Updated Information Related to the 2018–19 Supplemental Campus-Based Funds and Hurricane Florence

In an August 2, 2018 Electronic Announcement, we informed schools about the distribution of 2018–19 supplemental Campus-Based funds. In this announcement, we provide updated information related to the distribution of Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) supplemental funds to schools located in areas that have been impacted by Hurricane Florence. Note: Federal Work-Study (FWS) has been allocated through the normal funding process as described in the August 2, 2018 Electronic Announcement.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant

For the distribution of FSEOG funds, the information in this announcement supersedes the August 2, 2018 announcement. On September 28, 2018, the Department of Education (the Department) reallocated supplemental FSEOG funds to schools located in areas that have been directly affected by Hurricane Florence and had eligibility for supplemental funding. Schools are only able to receive FSEOG funding up to the amount requested on the Fiscal Operations Report and Application to Participate (FISAP) submitted by September 29, 2017. The purpose of the FSEOG program is to provide grant funding to assist qualified students who demonstrate financial need. We strongly encourage schools to award FSEOG funds to needy students who are affected by Hurricane Florence.

School Notification

Schools receiving supplemental funding will be notified by email. This email is sent to the Financial Aid Administrator identified on the most recently submitted FISAP, or as updated on the "Demographics" page on the COD Web Site.

In the email, schools will be referred to their Statement of Account on the COD Web Site which will reflect the supplemental award amount for each program.

To access the Statement of Account, schools should follow these steps:

  1. Log in to the COD Web Site
  2. From the School tab, select the “Campus-Based System” link from the left navigation menu
  3. Select “Self-Service,” then “Notifications” from the left navigation menu
