Happy Retirement to pup Officer Odin 🧡

Today we celebrated K9 Odin’s retirement for over 10 years of service to our department. He served the department well and managed to make several campus friends along the way. He was easily the most popular officer on the department. We hope he enjoys his new civilian/pet life with his Mama Molly. It was a great run K9 Odin and we are going to miss seeing you walk our hallways. We’ll take it from here….. 💙

A big thank you to the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office K9 teams for your support!!!

Hey [email protected]!

To give more information regarding the cash grant disbursement:

If your account showed a negative balance, but now it does not appear anymore, this means it has been paid out and begun processing to you. You can check this by seeing the amount of cash grant on your student bill (MyUtrgv- Assist - search “ bill” - Fall 2020 - Payments: “Cash Grant-S” 1000)

If you see it under charges as “ disbursement” this is reflecting the cash grant being paid out to you, you do not need to pay it back.

Common FAQ:

▪️If I dropped a class, or will be dropping a class, affect my eligibility to receive the cash grant”:

- No, the cash grant has no hour requirements, you just need to be enrolled in 1 course.

▪️” Who can I speak to if I did not receive the first half of the cash grant”

- You can send an email to [email protected]

▪️“ can I see the status?”

Unfortunately, the cash grant is not showing under refund status for many students, much like the first one. But you can check your bill and see “ Cash Grant S- 1000 under payments. This means you have received it and it’s on its way to you!

▪️ “ if I have a prior balance, will it be applied to it”

- no, the cash grant will not go towards your current or prior balances, therefore you will still receive it.

▪️ “ how long will it take to receive the cash grant once it’s been paid out “

Please allow 4-5 business days once it has been paid out to be sent to you!

▪️ How can I check my student bill, and what do I need to see for the cash grant?:

MyUtrgv- Assist - Student Services - Registration - Online Student Bill- Fall 2020. You would see under Payments: “Cash Grant-S: amount 1000.00” (this is both of the $500 combined, meaning the 2nd has been paid out.

Hey [email protected]! We wanted to give some updates regarding the Cash Grant/ Drop date:

- The distribution of the 2nd cash grants will begin starting MONDAY - The week of September 14th

- if you received your first cash grant, you need to stay enrolled to be eligible for the 2nd cash grant.

- The cash grant has no hour requirements, so as long as you are enrolled in a course (1), you are eligible.

We hope you have a great rest of your week [email protected]! 🤠✌🏼
