Financial Aid

JWCC Student writingThe John Wood Community College Financial Aid Office is here to help students find funding to help pay for their education. Over half of all full-time students receive some kind of financial aid assistance.

Financial aid consists of scholarships, grants, loans (which must be repaid), and part-time employment. JWCC makes every effort within its means to help all students with limited financial resources secure the funds needed to complete their educational goals.

If you have additional questions, feel free to contact our office and talk with one of our financial aid staff members.
