Minnesota is working hard to mitigate the impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having on students, families and educational institutions. While students and teachers are adapting to a new way of learning – distance learning – Minnesota has programs and information to help students connect with their teachers and classmates, and to navigate the financial aid resources that may be available to them.
For school-age students
For students enrolled in higher education
- To help college students, students with children, and families remain financially whole during the pandemic, students will continue to receive current state financial aid payments, even if they withdraw from classes. This includes being paid for scheduled work study hours and child care grants they were depending on.
