SJSON Statement on CARES Act Emergency Relief Fund

SJSON submitted the signed Certification and Agreement form on Wednesday May 6, 2020 and fully intends to use all of the funds to provide not only the mandated 50% amount but also the full second traunch of the emergency grants directly to students. 

SJSON is scheduled to receive a first traunch of $48,014 under the HEERF student portion and a total disbursement of $96,027.

SJSON estimates the total number of students at the institution eligible to participate in programs under Section 484 in Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 to be approximately 98 and therefore eligible to receive an emergency financial aid grant.

SJSON determined student eligibility by using the Pell grant eligibility chart.

Guidance will be provided via email to all recipients by SJSON Dean.
