Scholarship and Financial Aid Opportunities at

Jewell

Investing in your college education is one of the most important decisions you will encounter. Through a collaborative effort and a combination of institutional funds, federal and/or state funds, and family contribution, you’ll find that Jewell’s distinctive education is a valuable investment for your future.

Getting Started: Helpful Hints to Understanding the Financial Aid and Scholarship Process What is Cost of Attendance (COA)? Cost of attendance is the full estimated cost of completing a full year, as a full-time student, at Jewell. The COA typically includes: Tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, personal expenses, and cost of transportation.

What are Scholarships? Scholarships are a form of institutional aid provided by Jewell to help you further your education and do not require repayment. Scholarships are awarded on various criteria, including academic standing, talent, and co-curricular activities.

What are Institutional Funds/Grants? Institutional funds include a variety of types of gift aid and are awarded based on financial need, academic standing, and talent. Institutional funds do not require repayment and decrease your family’s out-ofpocket expenses toward paying for college.

What is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)? The FAFSA is a form that can be prepared annually by prospective and current college students in the United States who are US Citizens or permanent residents. The form is used to determine your eligibility for state and federal financial aid including the Federal Pell Grant; Federal Unsubsidized and Subsidized Loans; and Federal/State Work-study programs. In addition, the FAFSA determines your Expected Family Contribution (EFC).

What is Expected Family Contribution (EFC)? Expected Family Contribution is a measure of your family’s financial strength and is calculated according to a formula established through the filing of the FAFSA. Your EFC determines certain types and amounts of aid for which you will qualify. In addition, the college will use the EFC to determine your eligibility for all sources of financial assistance.

What are Federal and State Funds? Federal and State Funds are a combination of grants, loans, and work-study that help you and your family afford college. Filing of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid determines the type of aid you will be awarded and your responsibility for repayment.

?

Who

should apply for Federal/State Aid?

Everyone! Many families mistakenly think they don't qualify for aid and prevent themselves from receiving financial aid by failing to apply for it. In addition, there are a few sources of aid such as the Federal Unsubsidized Direct Loan and the PLUS (Parent) Loan program that are available regardless of need.

How Jewell Awards Scholarships and Financial Aid Jewell works individually with families to create a comprehensive financial aid package that may include scholarships, institutional/federal/state grants, federal loans, and/or federal work-study. Jewell/Federal/State/ Other Grants =

Scholarships = Students are awarded academic, talent, and/or co-curricular scholarships based on specific academic, co-curricular, or talent qualifications. Scholarships do not have to be repaid and directly reduce how much your family must pay to the college.

Tip:

Upon completion of the FAFSA, and the determination of the Expected Family Contribution (EFC), aid in the form of Federal, State, and/or Jewell need-based grants may be awarded. Grants do not have to be repaid and directly reduce how much your family must pay to the college.

Federal Loans = Aid in the form of Federal loans (Student and/or Parent) is determined by submission of the FAFSA and the determination of your Expected Family Contribution (EFC).

Work-study = Through the completion of the FAFSA, students may qualify to participate in the Federal Work-study Program. Work-study is not a grant (you must work to earn it), and it is not a loan (you don't have to repay it). It is an opportunity to hold an eligible campus job. Additional campus employment can be found through the college’s Student Workers program.

Payment Plan: Jewell offers an interest-free Tuition Payment Plan for families to spread the out-of-pocket expenses for tuition, fees, room and board over 4-payments throughout the semester. The first payment is due August 1. Final payment for the fall semester is due November 1 and final payment for the spring semester is due April 1. Contact the Jewell Business Office at 816-415-5989 for details on using this plan or extending the plan over 12 months.
