Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF II—Acknowledgement of Funding)

Three Rivers College is pleased to announce our partnership with the U.S. Department of Education in the delivery of Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF), created under the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA). Emergency Financial Aid Grants are available to assist students who have had emergency expenses arise due to the Coronavirus while attending TRC. Assistance is available to help cover any component of the cost of attendance including tuition, fees, other institutional charges, food, housing, transportation, course materials, technology, health care (including mental health) and child care.

TRC has $1,140,644 in funding available through the student portion of CRRSAA for Emergency Financial aid Grants to students.

As of June 2, 2021, TRC estimates 951 students received funding in the amount of $1,140,644.

Phase 1: Application Process and How Phase I Award was Determined

TRC estimates that approximately 1,486 students may be eligible to receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants and application accepted with priority deadline of March 31.

The HEERF II guidelines required schools to prioritize students who demonstrated the greatest need. Therefore, students who have submitted a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to TRC with an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of $29,999 and have submitted an application will be awarded an automatic award of $1,200.

Student Eligibility
  • Currently enrolled in degree seeking program for Spring 2021.
  • Be a U.S. Citizen.
  • Have FAFSA on file for 2020-2021 with EFC below $29,999.

TRC estimates that 656 students received funding under Phase I application process in the amount of $787,200.

Phase 2: Application Process

TRC understands there are a wide range of students and their families who have been impacted by the coronavirus and have incurred unexpected expenses. Therefore, funding is available to help students who did not fall into the need-based category described above.

Additional HEERF II Emergency Grants are available to students through an application-based funding request process.

Student Eligibility
  • Be a U.S. Citizen.
  • Attended Three Rivers College in the 2021 Spring semester.

Students received multiple email notifications via email of the grant award and opportunity. TRC also provided information via our website and Facebook page.

TRC estimates that 295 students received funding under the Phase 2 application process in the amount of $353,444 as of May 12, 2021. TRC will continue to accept applications until funding is exhausted.

Disbursement of funding

Students who are eligible to receive the funding will be notified by the Office of Financial Aid and may review their financial aid offer through their myTRCC account under the financial aid section. Unless we receive notification that the student wishes to decline the award, the award will be considered accepted.

The funds will be processed and distributed by Three Rivers College to the bank account the student places on file for refund purposes. Get more information on setting your account for refunds.

The Office of Student Accounts will send an email to all eligible students once the funding has been disbursed.

Phase I & 2 funding will be awarded to students who have completed the application process. Students were given the option to consent to pay institutional charges prior to receiving their refund. Students who elected not to consent will have funds refunded directly to them.
