Saint Ben's and Saint John's are considering the financial ramifications resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. More information about student employment and partial reductions to room and board charges will be forthcoming as those decisions are made.
Families experiencing a change in financial circumstances as a result of the national health emergency may complete and submit a Special Circumstances form along with supporting documentation. In response to situations where parents have temporarily lost employment, we typically will wait a period of time before taking action, typically around six weeks, since it's unclear when effected workers will be allowed to return to work.
The institutions are awaiting further guidance from the federal government about possible assistance that might be provided thru the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
