Apply for Student Aid

From federal aid and scholarships, we'll help you find the forms to complete your financial aid application. Get all answers and explore all your options on how to finance higher education. 

Our growth has been exponential and we're still not at our peak yet. I would love for JCSU to be known as the HBCU that helped revolutionize the gaming industry.
