Financial Information

Financial assistance includes gift aid (scholarships and grants) and self-help aid (works and loans) which may be offered singularly or in combination. In selecting students to receive institutional gift consideration shall be given to gift and aid already available to the student from other sources. This should prohibit a concentration of gift aid among students for any single group, i.e. "the most needy of the needy." This ensures a much more equitable distribution of funds. Selection of students to receive financial aid will be made without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, handicap or veteran status. In determining a student's resources, four things are considered: family income, family assets, student assets and student income. The total amount of financial assistance offered to a student shall not exceed his/her cost of attendance. Need for financial assistance is considered after all other resources available to the student.

Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) Cares Act Funding

St. John’s College received HEERF funding and used no less than 50 percent of the funds received under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act to provide Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students. St. John’s College of Nursing undergraduate and graduate students received a portion of the emergency funding provided by the Department of Education, which totaled $50,478.00. Each student received a specific allocation based on an application of need. A ranking system of three levels was created, for highest, moderate and lowest need. The graduate students were categorized as lowest need, the pre-licensure students were divided between moderate and highest need. The Pell eligible pre-licensure students are the highest award, followed by the pre-licensure non-Pell eligible students. The grad students receive less because they have an RN license and could have worked where most of our pre-licensure students could not as nurse techs. Fifty-five students received the emergency funding for personal use. Currently we have 106 students in the Title IV program.
