This is a valid question because, as you likely already know, being enrolled in an eligible program is one of the requirements to receive student aid. If a program is canceled, this can affect the aid that a person receives.
Fortunately, most of the schools that have closed campuses across the country are continuing to offer classes online. If this is the case for your school, then your student aid should not be affected. But what if your campus is closed and you can’t afford housing or food? This is the situation that some students have found themselves in due to the current pandemic.

Keep in mind, too, that if household members have lost work due to the coronavirus outbreak, this may increase your future funding. So don’t forget to take advantage of every benefit that you may receive due to this troubling situation.
