Tuition and Financial Aid
Investing in your education is an investment into the development of your personal and professional capabilities. Logically, that's a true statement. On the emotional side, however, contributing to something where there is no immediate tangible outcome can create anxiety and uneasiness.
At JIU we understand this, and that is why we strive to provide you with a high quality education at the most affordable rates. JIU offers scholarships and assistance for active duty, reserves, guard, veterans, retired, spouses and dependents.
