Financial Aid

Few investments in life are as monumental as that of a college education. As such, no other investment promises the lifelong dividends the right college education promises. At Rollins, we believe that value is everything and the Office of Financial Aid is dedicated to providing the tools and resources necessary to help you invest in a Rollins education.

Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund III (HEERF III)

Students who received a Federal Pell Grant during the Spring 2021 semester will receive automatic awards beginning the week of June 21st. All other students enrolled at the end of Spring 2021 semester, including international and DACA students, will be able to apply for funding the week of June 28th. Grants will range between $500 to $2,000. Students will have the option of receiving a direct refund or applying the funds to their fall balance. Please note that the option chosen will have no impact on the HEERF III award. Further information will be emailed the week of June 28th to students who qualify at their Rollins email address.

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Extended Benefits

The federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP formerly Food Stamps) was expanded to allow college students to more easily access the program, temporarily removing work and eligibility requirements for students for the duration of the pandemic. The provision lifted certain exemptions to the federal criteria for students to be eligible for the program, making it possible for students with an expected family contribution (EFC) of $0 on their FAFSA to receive benefits. To find out how to apply, or for other questions about your SNAP eligibility, contact your local SNAP office.

FCC Emergency Broadband Benefit

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently announced a program to help families secure internet and a computer amid the pandemic. A household is eligible to receive the benefit if one member of the household received a federal Pell Grant in 2020-2021, among other possible criteria for eligibility. Eligible households can receive up to $50 per month to help pay for broadband internet service and can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers if they contribute $10-$50 toward the purchase price. Applications open May 12th, 2021.
