Marietta College has submitted the certification and agreement form to access Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds (HEERF) and intends to use the funds to provide the mandated amount of $435,236 to provide emergency grants to students. Marietta College made the decision to award the grant equally to all undergraduate, degree-seeking students, who were eligible to receive Title IV funding based on FAFSA results, who were enrolled in the Spring 2020 semester as of March 16, 2020.
Funds were released the week of May 11, 2020, by Marietta College to 853 eligible students. These funds are to be used to assist with the costs of attendance for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus (including eligible expenses under a student’s cost of attendance such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and child care).
