Student Financial Aid Information

Types of Aid

Private Student Loans

Private student loans are available through Sallie Mae.  Click HERE to visit the Sallie Mae website and submit an application.  The application process is entirely online.

Upon request to the Financial Aid Office via email at or telephone at (574) 232-2408, a Private Education Loan Self-Certification Form will be provided to the student or applicant (or to the parent applicant of an enrolled or admitted student, if applicable).  The Self-Certification Form will provide information on the Cost of Attendance and any estimated financial assistance for the period of enrollment covered by the loan to yield a net price of attendance for the period of enrollment covered by the loan. 

Students may qualify for loans or other assistance under the Title IV, HEA programs and the terms and conditions of the Title IV, HEA program loans may be more favorable than the provisions of the private education loans.


Students are encouraged to apply for scholarships available through professional societies such as the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) and the AAMD Foundation (American Association of Medical Dosimetrists) as well as vendors and other charitable organizations in the radiologic science fields. Contact JPU at for more details.

Criteria for Selecting Recipients and for Determining Award Amounts
All students who meet all eligibility requirements are entitled to receive aid.  Refer to the General Eligibility Requirements.

The University determines award amounts based on the Estimated Family Contribution (EFC), which is calculated by the Department of Education using information submitted by the student on the FAFSA as well as the University’s cost of attendance.  Five factors that contribute to the calculation of the EFC are income, assets, household size, number of students in college, and the age of an older parent.

The Cost of Attendance is provided by the University and varies from student to student.  The cost of attendance may include tuition and fees, lodging and living expenses, books, travel, and miscellaneous expenses.

The Cost of Attendance less the EFC equals Financial Need.  JPU does not guarantee that financial need will be met fully with financial aid programs.
