7. Advanced Beauty College provided the following guidance via email to students, concerning the Emergency Financial Aid Grants prior to the disbursement of funds:
Each student was presented with a certifying statement to determine grant eligibility. This statement was to inform each student of what the emergency Financial Aid Grant to students was intended for. Upon reading the statement the student was to answer whether they had a disruption in the family's financial situation to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Each student received the funds by paper check in person, after accepting the amount.
Advanced Beauty College has answered all student questions to the best of our ability. We have also informed the students as to the intended use of the emergency Financial Aid Grants to students.
