Each student receiving an Emergency Financial Aid Grant received the following notification and instruction from the Financial Aid Director:

We have completed an evaluation of your application for SWTJC Student
HEERF III. An activated award has been posted to your online
WebAdvisor account. The award will be transmitted through the
arrangements you have made with your BankMobile account.

Money from the HEERF III is not considered financial assistance under
federal statue, nor Department of Education regulations. As such,
these funds will not impact your eligibility for regular financial
aid (e.g., grants, scholarships, loans).

If you owe an outstanding balance to Southwest Texas Junior College,
these funds will not be applied to any balance owed to SWTJC and will
be paid directly to you unless annotated on application.
