Financial Support

Financial Aid

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.
