Martin University announced Aug. 4 that it will clear past-due account balances for over 200 students.
“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,” Martin President Sean Huddleston said. “Students should not have to take time off from receiving an education due to these unforeseeable circumstances.”
The university is able to clear these accounts with grant funds from funds from the CARES Act.
The majority of students receiving the aid are those continuing school but not yet registered due to past-due account balances. Further, some students receiving the aid stopped attending college entirely because they could not afford to continue. Both graduate and undergraduate balances are eligible for the funding.
“The pandemic reduced my income, and I was unable to continue my education because I didn’t have the income I was used to,” Pastor Timothy Taylor, a senior at Martin, said. “This is an incredible opportunity that has allowed me to complete my lifelong goal of finishing my education.”
