Take a walk down Financial Avenue
JCC encourages all students, especially student loan borrowers, to check out SUNY Smart Track, a new resource with tools and services to help with financial literacy.
Connect with an Affordable Education
In 2012, Jamestown Community College was named the “Top Performing Public Two-Year College” in New York according to The Chronicle of Higher Education, which looked at cost, federal aid, graduation rates, student aid, and more. At JCC, we connect 8 out of 10 of our full-time students with some type of financial aid. That means your education doesn’t have to break your budget.
Types of Financial Aid
JCC can help make your education more affordable, and your first step is applying for financial aid. JCC connects you with grants, loans, scholarships, and work study to help make your college education a reality.
- Grants—Money offered by JCC to meet a student’s need that does not need to be repaid. Eligible JCC students have access to two major types of grants: federal grants and state grants from New York or Pennsylvania.
- Loans—To help finance your college education, you can use federal or student loans. Loans are financial assistance that must be repaid over time once you graduate or are otherwise no longer enrolled.
- Scholarships—A financial aid award from JCC or another donor that doesn’t need to be repaid. It can be given for academic achievement, outstanding talents in the arts or athletics, or other qualifications.
- Work study—JCC provides part-time employment to eligible students to help with college expenses.
