The 2016-17 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is available. JMU’s FAFSA Priority Filing date is March 1st, but as long as you meet the general aid eligibility requirements, you may still submit a FAFSA after this date. Please view the FAFSA video to learn more about this process at JMU.
All financial aid disbursements will be stopped between June 13 and July 1 while JMU completes fiscal end-of-year reconciliation. Students will not be able to receive any financial aid refunds during this timeframe.
