Our aid packages are based on individual need as well as on academic merit, leadership and special talents. We encourage you to apply to the University of Jamestown and for federal aid.
Federal aid is available to those who qualify. You can file for federal aid online at www.fafsa.ed.gov which is the fastest and most efficient method. You can also mail in a FAFSA form which you can obtain from your high school counselor or from the University of Jamestown.

The recommended priority date for filing for federal financial aid is March 1, 2014. It is possible to file after this date, but it may lessen your chances to receive financial aid.
