Bevill State Community College plans to use American Rescue Plan, or Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund III (HEERF III), funds to assist students that enroll for the 2021 Fall Semester. Degree-seeking students enrolled in credit classes for Bevill State’s 2021 Fall Semester before the end of Late Registration on August 23, 2021, could receive up to $1,200. Eligible students will receive notification and disbursement details after that date.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for students enrolling at Bevill State Community College this fall. COVID-19 has impacted everyone. These challenges have resulted in some students having to put their education on hold. The College’s hope is that these funds will give students the resources necessary to start, continue, or return to school. The faculty and staff of Bevill State look forward to seeing students on our campuses and online this fall,” stated Bevill State President, Dr. Joel Hagood.
These federal funds are provided by the United States Department of Education to ensure learning continues during the COVID-19 pandemic. Funds should be used for any component of the student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care), or childcare.
