To apply for financial aid, you must fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You may apply online at www.fafsa.ed.gov to receive the fastest service. You will need your previous year's tax statements to complete the form.
By completing the FAFSA, you are applying for loans through the government. Student Loans are either subsidized (government pays the interest while the student is in school) or unsubsidized (student is responsible for the interest while in school). Subsidized loans are based upon a demonstrated financial need. Unsubsidized loans are available regardless of your income. Repayment on either of these loans starts six months after you graduate or drop below half-time status.
When you complete the FAFSA, a report will be sent to Judson’s Financial Aid Office. Once the report has been received and you have been admitted into the Graduate Program, you will receive an award letter that outlines what aid you are eligible for. Questions regarding financial aid may be directed to the Financial Aid Office at 847-628-2532.
Tuition Reimbursement is a benefit provided by some employers. You should discuss your options with your company's human resource office. Contact the Student Accounts Office at 847-628-2053 with specific questions regarding Judson’s tuition reimbursement policies.
Tuition Deferment Plan (TDP) is a service that allows students to set up a monthly payment plan for a minimal charge, in which payments are spread out over the entire term. Contact the Office of Student Accounts at 847-628-2051 for more information.
Approximately four to six weeks after filing the FAFSA you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) from the federal processor, listing the information you provided. If you provided an email address on the FAFSA you may receive the SAR via email. Review this information carefully. If corrections need to be made, go to www.fafsa.ed.gov or use Part 2 of the paper SAR to correct the information and send the signed SAR directly to the federal processor. IF the SAR indicates that you are selected for "verification", you will need to provide the Financial Aid office with a signed copy student's taxes and a Verification worksheet.
