  3. Public Comment 
    1.  Dana Jones
      1. Here to discuss the Student Emergency Fund, and the changes wanting to see.
      2. SEF Fund
        Students can apply for up to $599 and have to meet certain criteria. Enrolled in six credits, good conduct standing, paying student fees, and an unexpected emergency. Medical care, books and academic needs, emergency needs. Won't cover rent, car payments, etc. Need documentation to support their cases to prove that they truly need assistance. Fall semester could see anywhere from 75-100 cases, around 50 will be covered with financial aid. This year there is less financial aid and this needs revision. There are various committees to vote or deny the approval request. When accepted Aims will ensure that there is a solid plan for the student, if denied Aims will look to help students by any means they can. The process is seen to be consistent and fair until COVID and this puts a kink in the system. During covid, many students were helped through the foundation and CARES. Now we are in a situation where students have been getting foundation money and are used to receiving this money, COVID can no longer be seen as an emergency form. 
        Looking to reimagine the criteria that is needed to apply for this fund.
      3. Proposal on Getting rid of the Book and material part of the criteria as a part of the emergency fund.
      4. Asking the question if it's COVID related, proposal to get rid of this criteria.
      5. Found this past fall that Financial aid would give students grant money, and through SEF would bump up their account. Currently the application is open on the first day of the semester, proposal to push the application start date after the drop date has passed.
      6. In the last few semesters, there are students that are maxed out on grants and financial Aid, proposals to address the committee about these students and if they should be funded by the SEF.
      7. Recently, a couple students who have not received their SEF check in weeks, propose to have a 5 day deadline to contact and receive the check otherwise, they would need to redo the whole process.  
      8. Currently High Sschool students and concurrent enrolled students cannot receive the SEF because they do not pay student fees, a proposal to allow a few of these students to receive SEF funds.
