Scholarships and Financial Assistance

Jacksonville University offers students a comprehensive financial assistance program that is administered through the JU Office of Student Financial Assistance. Financial assistance may be granted on the basis of academic or talent qualifications or on the basis of calculated financial need. The financial assistance programs are administered in accordance with University equal opportunity guidelines and the federal definition of demonstrated financial need. Any student who applies for admission to Jacksonville University may request financial assistance, although all new students must be accepted for admission before financial assistance may be awarded. In most cases, students receiving financial assistance must maintain at least half-time status and satisfactory academic progress. Most federal, state, and institutional grant assistance is restricted to students who are completing their first bachelor’s degree.

While Jacksonville University welcomes students from other countries, those who are not United States citizens or are not permanent residents of the U.S. are not eligible for federal and state need-based financial assistance offered through the JU Office of Student Financial Assistance. Prior to a student’s enrollment, the Office of Admissions provides a special Financial Information Sheet for International Students. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services policy requires international students to furnish evidence that they will have sufficient funds for their education in the United States.
