The Financial Aid Office at Jackson State University coordinates all financial assistance (federal, state, institutional, and private) offered to students. Our fundamental purpose is to make a university education possible to those who would otherwise be unable to have one.
Financial Aid is financial assistance that helps a student lessen the difference between what he/she can afford to pay and the actual cost of attendance. Financial assistance consists of grants, loans, employment, scholarships or a combination of any of these forms.
Students seeking federal financial assistance are required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The priority deadline date for Jackson State University is April 15 of each year.
