Financial Aid and Planning

To assist students in meeting their educational expenses Johnson & Wales University, through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), offers several types of financial assistance — scholarships, grants, low-interest loans and federal work-study. In many cases, qualified students receive a financial aid package which may include a combination of these awards. Students are reminded to file for financial aid each year and as soon as possible after October 1 to gain access to the maximum amount of financial aid. There is a priority filing deadline for many state grants.

Financial planners are available on a walk-in basis to assist students with the FAFSA, which determines eligibility for federal, state and institutional need-based aid. Financial planners also advise students on options to pay for educational expenses after financial aid, including term payment plans, monthly payment plans and additional loan options.

For assistance in selecting payment options or making financial arrangements to meet educational expenses, contact Student Financial Services at the appropriate campus:
