MSN/Troy Financial Aid
The JSU Office of Student Financial Services has negotiated an agreement with the Troy University Financial Aid Office. MSN students may now apply for financial aid reimbursement in advance of a semester in which the student plans to enroll in a required Troy course. The application, including instructions for completing it, is posted under FORMS on the JSU Student Financial Services website. If you are interested in applying for financial aid for a future-required Troy course, please download the application and follow the instructions carefully. Processing of the application takes several weeks between the two Universities, so you should refer to your plan of study and begin the application process four to six weeks before each semester in which you intend to request financial aid for a Troy course.
A new application must be completed and submitted prior to each semester in which a student intends to enroll in a Troy course. To access the application go to: www.jsu.edu/finaid and then click FORMS.
