Jackson State Community College offers comprehensive student aid services to prospective and current students. The college provides student aid in the form of scholarships, grants, and work positions. However, the only federal loan program that is available is the Federal Perkins Loan. JSCC Financial Aid Services' staff will assist you with grant application completion and will furnish information about the availability of Federal Student Aid and scholarships.
Student aid comes in two forms: financial need-based aid and merit-based aid. The federal government and the State of Tennessee provide need-based funds in the form of grants, work and loans. Jackson State offers merit-based aid in academic and athletic scholarships.
Application deadlines are critical when you seek any kind of financial assistance. Students should begin applying for all types of aid by February 15th of EACH YEAR. Do not delay in your pursuit of student aid because most funds are limited. Prospective students applying for federal aid must apply for admission to Jackson State Community College as a degree-seeking student. Click here to view Admission information.
Financial Aid's Philosophy
Our goal is to provide quality and courteous service.
The United States Department of Education believes the student and parent/spouse (whichever is applicable) have the primary responsibility for funding higher education. The U.S. Congress thus limits the amount of aid available to students.
However, the Jackson State Community College financial aid staff is dedicated to helping you pursue every avenue of student aid possible. We encourage you to contact us if you want additional information about any of the programs listed in this site. Please call for an appointment to have one of our staff members personally assist you.
