Fall 2021 KCC Students,

Under the federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), Kellogg Community College received approximately $4.3 million to provide emergency grants to students to help offset the costs associated with attending an institution of higher education or for emergency costs that arise due to COVID-19. 

These funds will be distributed among all Fall 2021 students by Friday, Nov. 19, via criteria outlined at kellogg.edu/caresStudents have the following options related to their ARPA funding:

  • If you’d like to apply the funds automatically to a past, current or future balance at KCC, visit the Bruin Portal and fill out the consent agreement form in the eForms section of the Portal.
  • If you’d like to receive your funds as quickly as possible for personal use, visit the Bruin Portal and sign up for direct deposit in the Banking Information section of the Portal.
  • If you do nothing and aren’t signed up for direct deposit, you should receive a paper check in the mail within five to seven days after Nov. 19.

Students interested in applying their funds directly to their KCC balance or in receiving funds via direct deposit must fill out the appropriate forms by the end of the day Wednesday, Nov. 17.
