Message to Students Regarding CARES Act, May 26, 2020


Dear Students,

First and foremost, we hope you and your family are doing well and staying safe.

Marist recognizes that the COVID-19 pandemic presents unparalleled challenges for many students and are writing to inform you of available assistance through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The CARES Act provides emergency funds to institutions of higher education to directly support students whose lives have been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Marist is offering you funds from the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Grant. To view and receive your grant, please log into myMarist here to confirm you incurred unexpected expenses due to COVID-19. If enrolled in e-refund, funds will be electronically deposited into your bank account within 7-10 business days of certifying eligibility. If not enrolled, a check will be mailed to your permanent address on file.

Further information regarding the CARES Act can be found at For further guidance, please feel free to contact Student Financial Services at 845-575-3230 or

We are committed to assisting you, especially during these times!
