What is Financial Aid?

Financial aid is monetary assistance for the cost of attending college that comes from a source other than the student and their family. Scholarships, grants, loans and the Federal Work-Study Program are all considered to be types of financial aid.

Apply for Financial Aid

Follow the instructions for how to apply for financial aid for all types of aid at JCCC. After completing the steps to the financial aid application process, you will follow up on your application process.

Follow Up on Your Application

  • The federal processor will send you a copy of your Student Aid Report (SAR) after you apply. If you do not receive your SAR within two to three weeks, contact them at 1-800-4-FEDAID.
  • You will receive an email delivered to your stumail account from JCCC when we receive your SAR.
  • Check your financial aid requirements online to make sure you have everything in place for your file to be awarded.
  • There may be additional documentation required if you are selected for verification.
  • Accepting Your Awards

    You will receive an email delivered to your stumail account when your award offer is available for you to accept or decline online. Once you have accepted your award(s) online, your enrollment will be protected if your tuition is not paid by the payment deadline. If you have not received your award email, check your SPAM folder since the financial aid office may be a new sender to your account. You can email the Help Desk or call them at 913-469-8500, ext. 4357 for more technical assistance. 

    Paying Your Tuition and Receiving Any Remaining Funds

    Find out more about financial aid disbursement, including how financial aid will pay your tuition balance and when you can expect to receive the balance of any funds in excess of any other outstanding charges due to JCCC.

    Withdrawal and Non-Attendance May Affect the Aid You Must Pay Back

    There are many requirements for earning your financial aid. Attendance and grades as well as the total number of hours you completed compared to the hours you were paid at the beginning of the semester, may require you to repay your financial aid. Before withdrawing from a class, check with the Financial Aid Office.
