USJ values academic excellence, leadership, diversity, service to our communities and country, and the ability to overcome adversity. Our scholarship and grant programs reflect our values and are intended to assist our students in achieving their potential. These various awards are available to new first-year and transfer students unless noted otherwise. Be sure to file your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) by USJ’s Financial Aid Priority Date (March 1 for incoming students) in order to optimize your eligibility for need-based gift aid.
USJ combines grants, loans, scholarships, and work awards supported by the federal and state governments and the University in order to provide students with an affordable education of value. Award funds and amounts vary based on student's initial year of enrollment.
*Honors, Academic Excellence, Mercy Merit and Phi Theta Kappa Scholarships may not be combined. Moreover, Honors and Academic Excellence Scholarships each include an additional $2,000 award toward the cost of room on campus. If a student receiving the Honors or Academic Excellence Scholarship decides to live off-campus, the scholarship will be reduced accordingly.
