We're dedicated to helping our students rebound with initiatives and additional services designed to help Javelina Nation get back to the classroom and campus life. The first step is with the Javelina Rebound Debt Reduction Program which is designed to alleviate some of the financial stress many of our students are facing.

The program will clear outstanding institutional debt students may have acquired during Summer 2020, Fall 2020 and Spring 2021, clearing the way for Fall 2021 enrollment.


Javelina Rebound is a program that uses money from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund to pay-off any outstanding balances to Texas A&M Kingsville for student debt that was incurred during the pandemic (Summer 2020, Fall 2020 and Spring 2021). The goal of the program is to remove financial barriers so that students can complete their college degrees.

Students—undergraduate and graduate students— who currently have institutional debt (outstanding student account balance) at Texas A&M University-Kingsville that incurred only during the following semesters:

  • Summer 2020
  • Fall 2020
  • Spring 2021

Institutional debt is money owed to Texas A&M University-Kingsville and can include outstanding balances for tuition and fees, parking tickets and miscellaneous fees.

No, federal student loans, private loans, and debt owed to third-party lenders are NOT considered institutional debt and are not eligible for debt reduction through this program.

Eligible students do not have to apply for this program, as the reduction will be applied automatically and can be viewed in the student’s Money Connect account.

Once the funds have been disbursed and placed on the student account, MoneyConnect will reflect the updated balance.

If you currently have a hold due to institutional debt owed to the University, the Javelina Rebound program will eliminate that hold, only for the applicable terms.

Yes! The goal of the Javelina Rebound Program is to remove financial barriers to educational access. Once debt has been discharged and your financial holds are lifted, you may register for Fall 2021 classes. This will not apply if the student has a Summer 2021 term balance.

No, it is not necessary to have FAFSA on file.

No, the Javelina Rebound program is open to all eligible students, including DACA and international students.

No. Only students with institutional debt incurred in Summer 2020, Fall 2020, or Spring 2021 and still outstanding as of June 30, 2021, will have their debt reduced. However, there will be other opportunities for students, registered and attending classes, to benefit from HEERF funding in different ways this fall.
