COVID-19 Resource Page

Nebraska Methodist College, in conjunction with Nebraska Methodist Health System, is actively monitoring the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and has made institutional changes in order to prioritize the health and well-being of our community.

We encourage all community members to stay informed by utilizing the resources on this page, and please reach out if you need assistance during these difficult times.

We encourage community members to share any questions and concerns they have related to NMC's COVID-19 pandemic response with any member of the College's Leadership Team or through our Compliments, Concerns & Comments reporting link.

NMC COVID-19 Dashboard

NMC maintains this data to keep our college community informed about the number of COVID-19 cases among students, faculty and staff who are on our campus. This information only includes positive cases that the college has been made aware of through NMC’s self-reporting guidelines. NMC’s fall on campus enrollment is 810 students and has 152 full- and part-time faculty and staff. 

Confidentiality laws prohibit NMC from disclosing any identifying information about affected individuals. Students who test positive are required to be isolated, and anyone believed to be at risk for exposure will be contacted and asked to self-quarantine.  Employees who test positive or at risk for exposure should follow instructions from Employee Health.

Federal COVID-19 Relief Funding

CARES Act (HEERF I)

On March 27, 2020, the federal government enacted the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”). The CARES Act includes a Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (“HEERF”). A portion of HEERF funds must go directly to eligible students in the form of emergency financial aid grants for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the COVID-19 crisis (“HEERF Student Share Grant Funds”).  The following information is provided by NMC as information on eligibility and how to receive these funds as well as required by the Department of Education (“ED”) in order to comply with the reporting requirements under the CARES Act.

CRRSAA: Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds (HEERF II)

The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund II (HEERF II) is authorized by the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA), Public Law 116-260, signed into law on Dec. 27, 2020. In total, the CRRSAA authorizes $81.88 billion in support for education, in addition to the $30.75 billion provided last spring through the CARES Act. 

NMC is expecting its HEERF II COVID-19 relief fund allocation mid-February.  We are in the process of reviewing the regulations around the HEERF II relief fund usage and distribution.  In accordance with the regulations, NMC will make financial aid grants to 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. The HEERF II 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.

If students are immediately eligible for emergency COVID-19 relief funding, we will notify you by NMC email.  We will have an application process for students experiencing exceptional need due to the COVID-19 pandemic to utilize as well.  More information to come in the next few weeks—please check back periodically for updates and further details.
