Financial aid helps students achieve their educational goals
JCCC provides students with a quality education without compromising their financial security. Our financial aid office offers scholarships, payment plans, and other financial aid options to help students cover tuition fees without going into unnecessary debt.
Hundreds of scholarship opportunities
Students can take advantage of a simple scholarship application process at the JCCC. No trials. No long questions. A single application determines which scholarships a student may be eligible for. We are proud to award millions of dollars in scholarships to qualified students each year.
Before submitting the scholarship application, students must also complete the Free Online Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which helps financial aid understand what federal grants and programs may be available to a student.
Completing the FAFSA is also required by several local scholarship programs, including the Kansas Promise Scholarship. This program, now in its second year, provides “last dollar” funds to qualified students. These funds can pay for tuition, books, and additional materials related to Promise-eligible courses that may not be covered by other scholarships or grants.
JCCC also offers scholarships specifically for students who are affiliated with veterans and the military, older students looking to change careers, students with children, and people pursuing specific degrees.
JCCC students can find work on campus through Federal Work-Study (FWS). Participating students work part-time on campus, often in positions related to their degree program. An additional bonus? Working on campus is a great way to meet people and get involved with the JCCC!
Convenient payment plans
JCCC also offers payment plans for fall, spring, and summer credit terms. With automatic payment withdrawals and email reminder notifications, our payment plans offer students a convenient way to pay tuition and fees over time, rather than in one payment.
All the deadlines and applications for scholarships, grants and other financial aid can seem complex and confusing. That’s why we’re providing financial aid tips for students and their parents to make the process a little easier. Our financial aid office offers a variety of ways to connect for help, including one-on-one appointments and a dedicated Zoom room where students and parents can ask quick questions.
Make a difference in a student’s life
Each semester, JCCC helps students pay for their tuition through scholarships funded by community members. If you would like to help students on their academic journey, consider making a donation to the JCCC Foundation. You can submit a one-time or recurring gift, establish or support a scholarship, make a personal endowment or memorial gift and more. Find out all the ways you can support JCCC.
