Undergraduate Financial Aid

Although we understand that funding a private Christian education can be challenging, we also believe that the value of a Judson education will exceed your expectations. Cost should not be the only determining factor when choosing a college; it is, however, a legitimate concern for many students and their families.

At Judson University, approximately 99% of our students receive financial assistance in the form of merit scholarships, institutional awards and grants, federal and/or state assistance, as well as low-interest student loans and work study.

Here you will find the resources you need to understand the funding that is available to meet the expense. Having a full knowledge of the Financial Aid process is crucial to making the most of the assistance available. Thus, timely application for financial assistance is the first step to financing an education.

Completing all the necessary steps to receive financial assistance takes time and preparation. Our Financial Aid counselors are available to help you every step of the way. If you would like to schedule an appointment, please contact your Financial Aid Counselor.
