Financial Aid at JAVĿ¼

In determining financial aid, financial need is the difference between the cost of attending JAVĿ¼ and your student aid index (SAI), as determined from information supplied on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Here is a simple formula of how it works:

Cost of Attendance Student Aid Index Other Financial Assistance = Financial Need

The financial aid we award comes from a variety of sources—the final result being a package of several types of aid. Depending on your particular situation, your financial aid award may include funds from scholarships, federal and/or state grants, student loans, or student employment.
