Martin University is planning to clear past-due account balances for more than 200 students. The university says the move will provide relief to students who were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are blessed to provide these students with an opportunity to continue their education without the burden of financial debt caused by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Martin President Sean Huddleston. “Students should not have to take time off from receiving an education due to these unforeseeable circumstances.”
The university says it is utilizing grant funds from the federal government, HEERF III Funds through the Cares Act, to clear the debt.
According to the university, the majority of students who will receive the aid are those continuing but not yet registered because of past-due account balances. Students who stopped attending college entirely because of their ability to pay are also included.
Martin says graduate and undergraduate balances are eligible for the funding.
