RISE is a Comprehensive Transition Program (CTP); therefore, our students qualify for federal student aid through the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). To access the FAFSA, visit: https://fafsa.ed.gov/ and select "Judson University" (School Code: 001700).

Judson University is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit. Private, church and/or corporate donations may be tax deductible.
