  • The student was diagnosed with COVID-19 and, due to the diagnosis, was severely ill and unable to engage academically.
  • An immediate family member was diagnosed with COVID-19 and suffered an untimely death or whose illness placed an undue burden upon the student (ex: a primary caretaker for siblings).
  • The student had to be a primary caregiver of someone diagnosed with COVID-19.
  • The student had an economic hardship resulting from COVID-19 directly impacting the ability to meet academic requirements.
  • The student had to become a first responder due to COVID-19.
  • The student had increased hours of employment to address financial hardship related to COVID19.
  • The student lost a babysitter/childcare due to COVID-19.
  • The student was unable to complete online education/distance education due to COVID-19.
  • The student had no WIFI access during COVID-19 due to facility closures.
