We understand that this is a difficult time for many of our alumni. We have pulled together some relevant information that may help you navigate the immediate future.
Student Loan Payment Deferral
Student loan payments and accrual of interest under certain federal loan programs are suspended through September 30, 2020. Please visit the federal government’s Q&A page for information on who qualifies to have their interest waived and how to request a temporary suspension of loan payments. We recommend saving this link and checking it frequently as new guidance and changes to regulations are being continuously updated.
Anyone with questions or concerns about their loans should talk with their loan servicer to discuss options. Borrowers can get their loan servicer’s contact information by logging in to https://StudentAid.gov/Login.
Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act
The CARES Act will allocate $2.2 trillion in support to individuals and businesses affected by the pandemic.
How much of a rebate will I receive?
Individuals with a Social Security Number and who are not dependents may receive up to $1,200 for single filers or $2,400 for joint filers. An additional rebate of $500 per qualifying child is available if your adjusted gross income is under $75,000 (single), $150,000 (joint) or $112,500 (heads of household) using your most recent tax return information or Social Security statement.
How do I get my rebate?
If you e-filed your taxes with direct deposit banking information, the rebate will be direct deposited. Taxpayers who did not e-file will receive a paper check.

Career Development Center
The Career Development Center has two main job search resources: Handshake and CareerShift. Both resources are free and allow the user to search for part-time, full-time, and internship opportunities, and you can search for positions anywhere within the United States. We will soon be offering GoinGlobal, a global search tool.
Handshake is your source for internship, entry-level and mid-level positions managed by the Career Development Center. They review each employer and position posted for students and alumni to view. You can request appointments with the Career Development staff in Handshake and upcoming virtual events sponsored by employers across the nation. Handshake can be a great tool to search for employer connections.
CareerShift is a larger database mining positions from all employer websites and job boards. It pulls positions found on individual company websites as well as positions posted on pages like LinkedIn and Indeed. When you click on a position you are interested in, the website will redirect you to the position posting so you can apply. To create an account in CareerShift, you need to use your Flagler alumni email address and the group ID “flagler” (all lowercase). Once your account is created, you can change your login/contact email address.
