Welcome to Student Financial Services
Code of Conduct 

To better serve our students, the Office of Student Financial Services will begin a new process in 2014 -2015 for electronic form and document submission. This process will allow students and parents to electronically sign and submit financial aid forms and documents.  Although, not all forms are allowed to be electroncially submitted due to federal regulations or other circumstances, we know that by streamlining the JSU financial aid process allows our Office to assist you more efficently and effectively in funding your education.
Electronic Form Instructions

Approximately 83% of our students receive some type of financial aid. So there is ample opportunity for you to find financial aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA.) A FAFSA is used to determine your need/eligibility for financial aid. Since JSU will prepare a financial aid package only after receipt of the results of the FAFSA and any additional paperwork that may be required, it is recommended that you complete your financial aid file before the March 15 priority deadline. You may continue to complete your financial aid files after this date, but may not be awarded prior to the tuition due date if completed after July. Be sure to have your application for admission to JSU completed first!

Our Office is here to assist you with any concerns or questions you may have about the financial aid process. Please click the FAQ & Hints tab to see if your question has already been answered, or contact our office.
