Although the primary responsibility for financing students' education rests with their families, the Financial Aid Office at Johnson State College administers a comprehensive financial aid program to help students who would otherwise be unable to afford a college education. JSC offers various scholarships, grants, loans and part-time employment to help close the gap between students' financial resources and their educational expenses. Since resources are limited, students should apply for federal, state and institutional aid early. All financial aid awards are dependent upon availability of funds and demonstration of financial need. All aid programs are subject to change due to changes in state or federal legislation.
