Emergency Loans for books

The Johnston Community College Foundation has established a fund to provide emergency loans to students for required textbooks and required materials. The loan fund is intended to be a revolving account with loan collections being available to be re-loaned.

The guidelines for administering the loan fund are as follows:

  • The maximum amount to be loaned to an individual per semester shall be $400.
  • Continuing students should have maintained a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0 or better.
  • Student should not have a history of excessive withdrawals from classes.
  • Student must apply for all other types of financial aid prior to applying for this funding. Exception would be Veterans Affairs (VA) students.
  • Student must sign a contract with payment plan dates.
  • Loans are available only at Registration.
  • The foundation director and vice president of student services or designee/s must approve any exceptions.
  • Loans are on a first-come, first-served basis. There is only a limited amount of funds available.

The loans apply to both in-state and out-of-state students. All loans will have a specified repayment date. Students who do not repay loans by the specified date will not be allowed to register for a new semester.
