Paying for School
All students, including recruited athletes, must submit Financial Documentation showing enough funds for expenses not covered by a Jacksonville University Scholarship. Learn more about our tuition and costs.
At this time, Jacksonville University is not providing international students with additional aid through the College Board CSS Profile.
For Undergradute Admissions, we do offer merit scholarships based on your recalculated GPA; this is determined during the application review process, so there is not an additional application for the merit scholarship. Additionally, international students may also work on campus for up to 20 hours each week (you would need to apply to a job, be hired, and go through the Social Security process, etc.).
The OAS Rowe Fund program was created over sixty-five years ago with the purpose of helping citizens of Latin American and Caribbean countries fund their studies in U.S. universities by granting interest-free student loans. Through this supplementary financial aid, the OAS contributes to the economic and social advancement of developing countries in the region.

PEER Platform for Syrian Students
IIE launched the Platform for Education in Emergencies Response (PEER) Platform. This is a database of scholarship, language and online opportunities for displaced Syrians and refugees. Students can search according to degree, country, or field of study. The platform is now focused on Syria, but the goal is that over the next few years it will evolve into a comprehensive database for all displaced students all over the world.
