Jacksonville College is Affordable

Attending college is an exciting time. Paying for it is not. Our Financial Aid staff is dedicated to helping you afford a Jacksonville College education. More than 95% of our students receive some kind of financial aid, and we try to provide financial assistance to students who would otherwise not be able to attend.

Jacksonville College offers two basic types of aid to assist students in meeting the financial demands of attending college. Gift aid or scholarships are provided by the College to pay for a portion of the educational expenses of the student. Governmental financial aid includes federal/state grants and work-study. Neither scholarships nor grants have to be repaid. Don't let the cost of your education keep you from attending Jacksonville College. Contact us; we can help. Additional information on financial assistance can be found in the Jacksonville College Financial Aid Policies and Procedures Manual located in the Norman Library, Financial Aid Office, and Admissions Office.

Students who wish to receive governmental financial aid from federal or state sources must complete and submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online.

Jacksonville College participates in the Federal Direct Subsidized Loan Program. Students must be attending at least halftime (6 hours) to receive a Direct Subsidized student loan.

Institutional scholarships are awarded through the College Scholarship Committee to students who qualify. A number of different scholarships are available in various categories as outlined below.
