Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

With the recently elevated discussion regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the news, Herzing University wants to take time to reinforce preventive safety measures and reference resources available to you.

We recognize that this is a rapidly evolving situation, but please know that we have no higher priority than the health of our students, faculty and staff.  

University Administration and Campus Leadership are working closely with campus partners, local and state agencies, and the CDC to stay informed on this evolving public health situation. 

Herzing University`s campus-based courses have transitioned to the online modality.

We encourage all members of the University community to refer to the CDC website for official Coronavirus (COVID-19) information. Please continue to refer to this site for Herzing University resources and updates.

For important disclosure information on the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”) Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students, please click here

HEERFII provides funding for emergency grant payments for students which can be used for any component of the student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care), or child care. Unlike the CARES Act, the CRRSAA requires that institutions prioritize students with exceptional need, such as students who receive Pell Grants, and authorizes grants to students exclusively enrolled in distance education.

Students who met eligibility requirements as of 3/5/2021 will receive a payment of $1,000 from the HEERF II fund.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Be active in a degree or certificate program as of 3/5/2021
    • Students on approved break are eligible as long enrollment in eligible program is confirmed
    • Students enrolled in a program that is not Title IV eligible are not eligible for this tranche (NDS, BHM CEMT, Dual enrollment)
  • Be a U.S. citizen or national, permanent resident, or other eligible noncitizen.
  • Have received or are scheduled to receive Pell Grant funding at Herzing University from the 20-21 Federal Award Year.

Herzing University is dedicated to our students and making sure any questions or concerns are addressed. If you have additional questions regarding your financial aid, please reach out to the Financial Aid department at your designated campus.

Herzing University provided eligible students funding from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) of the CARES Act beginning in the summer 2020 semester. The Department of Education informed institutions that emergency grant awards could only be made to students:

  • Who were not enrolled exclusively in online programs on March 13, 2020; and
  • Who are or could be eligible for Federal Student Aid under Title IV of the Higher Education Act.
  • Had eligible expenses that were in direct relation to the disruption of campus operations due to the coronavirus beginning on March 13, 2020

Students must have been actively participating in coursework to be eligible for disbursement of emergency funds (i.e. Summer 2020 semester attendance is required). Specific award information was emailed to students via their Herzing student email.

Herzing University is dedicated to our students and making sure any questions or concerns are addressed. If you have additional questions regarding your financial aid, please reach out to the Financial Aid department at your designated campus.
