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.
Requirements include, but are not limited to:
Jones College is recognizing students that currently meet these criteria or could meet the criteria for eligibility as set by the Department of Education in a tier system. All students enrolled at Jones College as of March 13, 2020, will fall within four (4) tiers of eligibility:
|Tier||Maximum Amount Available to Students||Minimum Amount Available to Students|
You are not eligible based on CARES Act requirements
These Emergency funds will be paid directly to students from BankMobile™ based on the refund method students have previously chosen. The emergency funds will bypass any balance owed with Student Accounts and will be fully available to students to use as needed in relation to COVID-19.
