Temple College has announced plans to make emergency aid grants of up to $750 available to students who enroll in fall 2nd 8-week classes. These grants can be applied directly to tuition for fall 2nd 8-week classes.

The grants will be available to students who take 6 or more credit hours during the 2nd 8-week term, which begins Oct. 18.

“For in-district students, this would be enough to cover their tuition for these 6 credit hours,” said Temple College President Dr. Christy Ponce.

Registration for fall 2nd 8-week classes at Temple College is available through Oct. 15. Classes are available in a variety of formats including in person, online, and hybrid.

To date, Temple College has distributed emergency aid grants totaling $2,724,066 to more than 2,000 students taking fall classes. The college received the grant money through a COVID-19 aid package known as the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF).
