SFS Operational Updates

All SFS staff continue to work from their homes, even as Carruthers Hall remains closed to walk-in traffic.  We are answering email and keeping regular phone hours. If you need assistance, please send an email to [email protected] or call at (434) 982-6000. The closure includes Cashiering functions as well; departmental deposits and expenditure credits should be submitted through messenger mail.

CARES Act Student Emergency Funding

Since mid-March, UVA has provided eligible students with emergency hardship support for travel, technology, food, medication, and other living expenses. The availability of funding through the federal Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act will enable us to continue providing our students with emergency hardship support for these and other expenses related to the disruption of on-Grounds operations due to COVID-19.

The CARES funding will be administered with the support of the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs. All current undergraduate, graduate and professional students can request funding for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the pandemic including, but not necessarily limited to, travel, technology, food, medication and other living expenses.

The application is available here: https://virginia.academicworks.com/opportunities/9386


Refunds for Adjusted Housing and Dining Charges

Refunds for pro-rated housing and dining credits began to be processed by SFS on April 2nd, and are continuing to be processed as they are submitted to SFS by Housing and Dining. Because housing and dining refunds may be processed separately, students may see more than one refund. Students should sign up for direct deposit to ensure they receive any refunds quickly and securely.


Emergency Loans

If you wish to use the Emergency Loan program, please call SFS directly at (434) 982-6000 to speak with an agent who will walk you through the process on the phone and who will verify necessary information to ensure your funds reach you quickly and securely.
