Relief Fund Information


To address the pressing financial need of students due to the disruption of campus operations from coronavirus, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act provides emergency financial aid grants for schools to distribute to their students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus (including technology needs).


The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund II (HEERF II) is authorized by the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA), and provides grant money to higher ed institutions to support needs presented due to COVID19. Please check back for more information on funding from the CRRSAA.

Wheaton is Now Participating with GradGuard to Provide Tuition Insurance

You can purchase insurance on a semester by semester basis to cover tuition costs should your student need to withdraw due to illness, including Coronavirus. 

Update from GradGuard: Until further notice, although not covered under most plans, we are currently accommodating claims for when an insured student completely withdraws from school for the covered term due to becoming ill with COVID-19.
