What you missed at SGA: NKU emergency funding, counseling fees, more

January 25, 2021


SGA has transitioned to a hybrid of virtual and in-person attendance. Members now have the option to attend the meeting via Zoom or on campus.

At this afternoon’s SGA meeting, Vice President Mia Derks talked about the emergency funding available at NKU as well as counseling fees being waived throughout this semester.

Derks announced that the second round of CARES Student Emergency Funding is available now, but there may be potential delays to receive the assistance.

CARES is available to students in need of financial assistance due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The funding can help students with the cost of food, housing, course materials, healthcare, child care and technology. Students can apply through their myNKU portal under the Student Self-Service tab. 

Derks also reminded everyone of counseling fees being waived for the Spring 2021 semester. 

“Take advantage of that [counseling fees being waived] and please, please tell everyone you know about that. Keep an eye out for your friends, especially right now. It’s both winter and a pandemic, so there’s a lot going on there and I wanted to spread the word,” Derks said. 

Chairwoman of the Academic Excellence Committee Hannah Miller and Senator Lily Sis also reminded everyone of the Public Health Masters Interest survey that was announced during last week’s meeting. 

SGA committee members are currently working on many different resolutions and events, including Victor Talks. There will be more to come in the following weeks regarding information about those resolutions and events.
