Financial Aid, Scholarships and Student Employment
Your college education is one of the most significant investments you will ever make. The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will help simplify and guide you through the financial aid process as you seek avenues to fund the cost of your college education. No matter your family income, you have the potential to afford the high-quality education JMU offers.
Our goal is to help meet these costs with funding available from federal, state and university sources. As a state-supported school, the majority of our grant assistance is allocated to Virginia residents. Resources for non-Virginia residents are primarily limited to student and parent loans. Scholarship opportunities are very competitive due to the caliber of students accepted by JMU. Acknowledging that our aid options are limited, the university has made a commitment to keep its costs reasonable, while providing a high-quality education.
To determine your eligibility for assistance, please complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. FAFSA forms received by the Department of Education before our priority filing date of March 1 will receive first consideration. Our federal school code is 003721. JMU does not base admission decisions on financial aid.
JMU awards more than 400 one- to four-year scholarships each year to incoming students. For more information, visit www.jmu.edu/scholarships/
Our Student Work Experience Center provides resources for locating part-time employment on and off campus.
