Morehouse College announced today that outstanding balances of students who have not enrolled for fall 2021 but were previously enrolled in spring 2020, summer 2020, fall 2020, spring 2021, and summer 2021 semesters have been cleared, effective Friday, July 30. The College’s goal is to provide assistance to students experiencing financial hardships which have prevented them from enrolling in fall 2021 classes or receiving diplomas.
“In light of the challenges that so many of our students and their families have faced during the pandemic, our goal is to help our scholars continue to progress educationally and move forward in their collegiate and professional pursuits,” said Morehouse College President David A. Thomas, Ph.D., in a letter to the Morehouse community. “As we eagerly anticipate reuniting with our students for an in-person living and learning experience this fall, along with the launch of our online bachelor’s degree classes, we will continue to create innovative ways to ensure that the cost of college never overshadows talent.”
This unique opportunity to provide financial support is made possible by funding provided by the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF). While this action does not affect payments made or due for the fall 2021 semester and does not refund payments already made to resolve past due balances, we hope that it will allow a group of students to return or persist on their path to become Morehouse Men unabated. The College applauds students who have already found ways to resolve their balances, receive their diplomas, or register for fall 2021 classes.
Morehouse continues to introduce new opportunities for student financial support, including almost 150 scholarships listed on the Scholarship Portal.
