Financial Aid Award Estimator
Undergraduate - Full Time

This online estimator was developed to help families plan for future educational costs at James Madison University. The figures provided in this tool are estimations and are subject to change based on changes in school costs, changes to your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), modifications to awarding formulas, and fund availability. This estimation is not intended to serve as a financial aid award notice.

James Madison University's FASFA filing priority date for entering freshmen and returning students is March 1st, which means the Department of Education must receive your FAFSA by this date. We suggest you submit the FAFSA on-line at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov a few days before March 1st to ensure timely receipt. If you are completing a paper FAFSA, make sure you allow time for your application to reach the Department of Education by the deadline.  

(NOTE: If you are a high school underclassman or have not completed your FASFA,  you may use the FASFA 4caster at http://www.fafsa4caster.ed.gov to receive an EFC estimate.)
