General Information
Application Process
  • Beginning in October of each school year, complete the FAFSA on https://fafsa.gov (School Code: 003721)
    • Parents and students filing their FAFSA for the first time will each need to create an FSA ID on http://fsaid.ed.gov
    • Make sure to include JMU on your list of schools.
  • If you are selected for verification, you may be required to submit more documentation before a financial aid package can be generated.  
  • Receive your Official Award Notice at your JMU e-mail address
    • If you are classified as a dependent student by the FAFSA, your parents will receive a separate Parent PLUS Loan Award Notice that will only contain information about their PLUS loan eligibility.
