Funding Your Future
- If a man empties his purse into his head, no man can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.

There are financing options for everyone.
JIU will help you understand them.
Investing in your education is an investment into the development of your personal and professional capabilities. Logically, that's a true statement. On the emotional side, however, contributing to something where there is no immediate tangible outcome can create anxiety and uneasiness. At JIU, we understand this aspect well and are very prepared to walk through all the options, identify the best match and guide our students through the financial aid application process.
The vast majority of our students use some sort of aid to offset tuition expenses. These sources can cover an academic year's course of study. Should you elect to privately pay for your courses, you need only pay for the courses for which you are registered. For all students, JIU offers the option of split payments so students aren't hit with the total cost of a course on their next credit card statement.

- I required financial aid to meet my educational goals. Loans, work-study, grants and scholarship made it possible for me (someone who grew up in a low-income neighborhood and participated in the free-and-reduced lunch program throughout their pre-K-12 education) to complete my undergraduate education.

- Accreditation was a must and the tuition was more reasonable than most other online institutions with less to offer in course content and depth.

- In fact, I'm short of words to use to express what my experience has been like. This is the best schooling I have ever received. I am made to feel as if I meet face to face with everyone I get acquainted with in the Forum, and the facilitators are great.
