    JSU provides grants (Federal Pell, FSEOG, Alabama Student Assistance), campus employment, loans (Federal Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized, Federal Direct PLUS Loans), scholarships, Veteran's Affairs benefits, and other state (Alabama) programs of assistance.

    Most aid programs are based on individual need of the applicant, determined by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) which does not require a processing fee. Forms are available in January and may be obtained through the University or completed on-line. Application for financial aid must be made each academic year. Although March 15 is the preference deadline for most applications, JSU accepts applications throughout the academic year. VA Education benefits pay for classes toward the major and require completion of several forms. Contact JSU's Office of Veterans Affairs (256/782-5892) for further information. Most programs require at least half-time for eligibility. The JSU Financial Aid web site contains all information to apply for financial aid.
