HEERF III – ARP Student Emergency Fund Information
Ohio Dominican has been awarded funds from the federal government as part of the American Rescue Plan (ARP) to help mitigate the financial impact of the pandemic on students.
Like last spring, this means that Ohio Dominican again has access to emergency funds it can use to help provide aid to eligible students who are struggling with expenses or other unexpected financial challenges related to the pandemic, including those
related to tuition, food, housing, course materials, technology, healthcare and child care expenses.
You do not need to apply for these funds, as all eligible students will automatically receive these funds. In order to be eligible, recipients must be currently enrolled for the 2021 Summer and/or 2021 Fall semester and actively taking classes in
an undergraduate or graduate degree-granting program, or a student pursuing initial teacher licensure. These funds are available to both full- and part-time students, including international students and online students.
In accordance with the federal government’s requirements, students with exceptional financial need – those who are eligible for the Federal Pell Grant – as demonstrated with 2021-22 FAFSA results will be given priority, and therefore
receive a larger amount of money than students who are not eligible for the Federal Pell Grant.
If you have direct deposit set up with the university, these funds will be deposited directly into the bank account that we have on file. If you have not established direct deposit with ODU, a physical check will be mailed to you.
It is our hope that these funds will help to relieve some of the financial stresses that you may have experienced as we make our way through this pandemic. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact ODU’s Business Office at 614-251-4550
