Financial Aid

A USJ education is a lifelong investment in yourself and your future. At USJ, we are committed to helping you make your education affordable. 

As an admitted student, you should have received a copy of your financial aid planning worksheet if you submitted your 2023-2024 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This worksheet was posted on your Student Status Page and sent via postal mail to your home address. Additional actions are required after you receive your financial aid package and are outlined in the “Next Steps” section of the financial planning worksheet.

If you are considering applying for need-based financial aid, and have not already submitted your FASFA, there is still time! The 2023-2024 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is available at www.studentaid.gov. (FAFSA School Code: 001409)

Student Financial Services counselors are available to help you throughout this process and can assist you at any stage – from applying for aid through discussing options to pay your estimated annual balance. Schedule your appointment today!
