How will housing and dining costs be impacted by MTU Flex?
If the COVID-19 situation prevents students from living in campus housing for any or all of the semester, they will only be charged for the amount of time they were in residence. For students who are unable to live in campus housing at all during the semester, no housing costs will be charged. Any financial aid remaining after being applied toward tuition, any campus room and board costs, and other charges, will be disbursed to the student to be used for housing, meals, and other necessary expenses.
The timing of potential disbursement of financial aid balances will depend on whether any disruption to on-campus housing occurs. Regardless, students can be assured that disbursements will be timely, allowing them to access funds when needed.
What is the Husky Emergency Assistance Fund?
The Husky Emergency Assistance Fund (HEAF) is supported by private donations raised by Michigan Tech's Advancement Office to assist students and employees during emergency situations. The fund was set up in response to the COVID-19 crisis and will remain as a source of emergency assistance in the future.
Request funds from the HEAF, fill out the HEAF application. Applications are reviewed for eligibility.
