Jones College Student:


During these rapidly changing times, our mission at Jones College is to ensure that student needs are met so that you can be successful now and in future semesters at Jones. You may have recently heard of The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). A section of that act includes the Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds (HEERF).

Jones College has received HEERF funds from the U.S. Department of Education for students who are in need of assistance as a result of COVID-19. These emergency funds can assist you during this difficult time but are not intended to replace income or to pay for student expenses, not related to the disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19.


Who is eligible to receive HEERF funds?

Requirements include, but are not limited to:

  • Currently enrolled students in a degree or certificate-seeking program at Jones College

What can HEERF funds be used for?

Emergency financial aid grants may be used by students for any component of their cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care), or child care. Students determine how they may use their emergency financial aid grant within the allowable uses.

How much is a student eligible to receive through HEERF funds?

Eligibility for the Fall 2021 semester is being reviewed and information will be provided to students in their Jones email.

These Emergency funds will be paid directly to students from BankMobile™ based on the refund method students have previously chosen. The student emergency financial aid grant is provided to the student, and may be used for any component of the student’s cost of attendance such as tuition, food, housing, Students must elect for these funds to go toward their student account.

HEERF funds - Helpful tips for students:

  • Students are encouraged to set up a refund method with BankMobile™ prior to the release of Emergency Funds if this has not been done previously.
  • The Jones College website provides information about the regulations and how Jones College has determined the Emergency Funds eligibility. More information will be provided as available in the upcoming weeks on the Emergency Funds eligibility.
