New year a time to think about financial aid
Interested in going to college but not sure how to pay for it? Financial assistance is available for those who qualify!
Financial aid is the commonly used term for money to help with college expenses. The U.S. Department of Education should be the first source to figure financial aid. Most students receive some kind of financial aid to help pay for their college education. Financial assistance can be available in four forms: grants, scholarships, work-study and loans. Grants and scholarships provide money that doesn’t have to be paid back. Work-study provides money you earn for work while in school. Loans are money that you borrow and pay back with interest.
Please visit JCC’s financial aid office for specific information.
How do I get started?
To apply, complete the Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. With limited financial aid available, the sooner one completes the form, the better. After your taxes are filed, think about completing the FAFSA. Completing the form online is the fastest, with any inaccuracies immediately detected. Students must re-apply each year.
