1. Apply to JJC

You must complete the JJC admissions process in order for our office to complete the financial aid process. Learn more about applying at admissions.

2. Apply for Financial Aid: FAFSA

Complete the 2013-2014 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online or renewal FAFSA (for students who have applied in previous year) at www.fafsa.gov as soon as possible. 2012 financial information is required to fill out FAFSA (W2s, Federal 1040s).

Applying is easier with the IRS Data Retrieval Tool.

Students and parents who have completed their 2012 IRS tax return will be able to use FAFSA on the Web to electronically view their tax information. With just a few simple steps, the tax information can also be securely transferred into the FAFSA.

When you apply for your FAFSA you will be prompted to apply for a pin, and it will be assigned to you immediately. Be sure to keep this for your records, as you will need this every year you apply for FAFSA. JJC's Federal (Title IV) School Code: 001699.

Please visit https://fafsa.ed.gov/help.htm for additional FAFSA information.

3. Read the Financial Aid Standards of Academic Progress and Policies

The following documents should be read before taking the Online Standards of Progress quiz.

Please take your time and feel free to print out the above web pages for your use. We recommend that you print the documents before you begin the quiz. Our intention is not to have trick questions or answers on the quiz, but to have obvious answers available to you.

4. Online Standards of Academic Progress Quiz

In an effort to help students understand the Financial Aid Standards of Progress Policy, we have developed an online quiz. After you review the quiz documents and complete the quiz, we hope that you will have a clear concept of what the policy is. The quiz must be passed in order to complete your financial aid file.
