Financial Aid

Only students with certified guaranteed federal or alternative loans are eligible for book vouchers. External sources such as private scholarships are not guaranteed and therefore cannot be credited to a student’s account.  A loan is considered certified once all required admissions and loan documentation have been submitted and once the student’s financial aid budget has been approved. To determine if you are eligible or to obtain a request form, please contact your assigned Student Solutions Advisor (SSA).

JIU will credit eligible funds to your student account.  Once these funds have been posted they are available as a payment type at the bookstore.  Additional details about using financial aid at the bookstore are available on the bookstore website,
