The UOG Cares initiative began during the Fanuchånan 2020 semester as part of the University of Guam’s response to the needs of our students.

Through this initiative, we remain committed to providing our students with the support they need to achieve their academic goals. UOG cares provides resources and solutions in the areas of finances, academics, and health & wellness.

Read on to find out more about our initiatives.

Because many of us have been impacted financially during the pandemic, we are providing some financial relief to students to bring down the cost of education at UOG for the Fanuchånan 2021 semester.

Throughout the 2021-2022 academic year, eligible UOG students will collectively receive up to $6 million from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) III.

Students registered for Fanuchånan 2021 and Fañomnåkan 2022 will receive direct payments via direct deposit or through the mail. Details will be released later this semester.

Eligible students can also apply for grant aid up to $5,000. (Read on below.)
We have launched the UOG Cares Emergency Grant Program, a needs-based financial aid program that will provide up to $5,000 grants to eligible students. The program is now accepting applications. Read more about the program and apply here.

  • Masks required everywhere on campus, indoors and out
  • Temperature checks as needed
  • Increased cleaning frequency and disinfecting of high-touch surfaces
  • Hand sanitizer available throughout the campus
  • Many classrooms and buildings have been outfitted with air filtration systems. Facilities personnel are adding these systems to more rooms every week.
  • No eating or drinking is authorized indoors on campus. Eating or drinking should only be done in a fixed location outdoors with six feet of distance from others.

Everyone in your in-person classes and in campus offices (students and employees) should be vaccinated with at least one dose by Aug. 25 and fully vaccinated by Sept. 24 or have an approved accommodation from the EEO Office.
