Dear Tech Family,
Good Thursday morning.
This week, our area has experienced severe winter weather. Many areas will see more snow today, and we have decided to close campus through Friday.
Classes will remain virtual through the end of this week. If you are having difficulty because of power outages or connectivity issues, please contact your professors to let them know. I am sure they will be understanding – some of them are experiencing the same challenges as our students. We have no flexibility for making up missed class time for this quarter, so going virtual with our classes today and tomorrow gives our professors the maximum flexibility to meet class requirements before the quarter ends.
PLEASE avoid driving while ice and snow remains on roadways. Travel at this point is still very dangerous!
COVID-19 is still very much present, so don’t let down your guard!!
Tech Table will be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. today and Friday for students who are currently on campus. The Lambright Center will remain closed.
Essential employees who are needed to work will be notified by their supervisors, and Human Resources will send out special instructions on Monday on how to record time worked and special leave taken.
Lady Techsters basketball games against Middle Tennessee will move to 2 p.m. Saturday and noon Sunday. Our Lady Techsters volleyball games against Southern Miss will be played at 5 p.m. Sunday and 2 p.m. Monday.
Once again, remember to be safe and stay home if possible.
Now for some good news!
Louisiana Tech University has established the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) Grant to provide financial assistance for expenses for any component of the student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that are related to COVID-19, such as but not limited to tuition, food, housing, health care, mental health care, or child care.
The funds that are awarded will be posted on the student’s account and refunded in the form of a direct payment to the student by the end of the quarter. It is recommended that students set up direct deposit to their checking account so that funds will be readily accessible for needed expenses.
The CRRSAA Grant Application will be available today on AcademicWorks. Students who meet the basic criteria below will receive an email notification from the Office of Financial Aid with additional information on the CRRSAA Grant and they will be able to see the application as a recommended opportunity in Academic Works when they log in.
Please review the full information, how to apply, and FAQs at latech.edu/CRRSAA. If you still have questions, you may contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information on the CRRSAA Grant Application. Students must submit their CRRSAA Grant Application for the Winter Quarter no later than the close of business by Feb. 24.
Students who meet these qualifications will see the CRSSAA Grant on AcademicWorks under recommended opportunities:
- A degree-seeking undergraduate/graduate student currently enrolled at Louisiana Tech University during the Winter Quarter 2020-21;
- A U.S. Citizen or Eligible Non-Citizen;
- Have completed a 2020-21 FAFSA;
- Have received a federal financial aid offer letter during 2020-2021;
- Have a federal financial aid Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as determined by the 2020-21 FAFSA of less than $10,000.
- Submit an application which indicates the component(s) of the student’s cost of attendance (COA) OR for emergency costs that are related to coronavirus, such as but not limited to tuition, food, housing, health care, mental health care, or child care while attending Louisiana Tech University.
Priority will be given to students who:
- Have an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of $0;
- Have official Pell Grant eligibility;
- Have exceptional “need” as defined by a federal financial aid offer letter which is considered to have a federal financial aid Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as determined by the 2020-2021 FAFSA of less than $10,000
If you qualify for this new grant to help with the expenses associated with COVID-19, I encourage you to apply today.
Stay warm and safe, Bulldogs. If you can, focus on your work to complete the quarter strong!
