Other Forms of Financial Aid


Many of our students are on some form of financial aid. To determine your eligibility, you'll need to complete your free application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online. Once you have completed your FAFSA and have supplied the required documents JSU's Office of Student Financial Services will be happy to help you explore your financial options.
