Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency’s (PHEAA) Board of Directors took action last week to provide for the temporary modification of certain program requirements of PHEAA-administered Pennsylvania student aid programs to ensure recipients won’t experience a disruption or reduction of funding due to operational changes made by schools in response to COVID-19.

“COVID-19 is creating historic challenges for students as postsecondary schools adopt operational changes that transform how higher education is delivered to students, including the widespread transition to online-only classes,” said Representative Mike Peifer, PHEAA board chair. “To keep pace with these changes, we need to quickly provide PHEAA with the administrative flexibility to safeguard students from any negative consequences that a school’s pandemic response could cause.”
