Keeping Your Aid
Each scholarship has its own requirements that you must be aware of and complete in order to maintain eligibility. In addition to these requirements, all students must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). Requirements of undergraduate SAP include that you achieve a 2.00 GPA and complete at least 70% of your courses. For more complete information about our SAP policy, please visit our Satisfactory Academic Progress webpage
Renewing Your Aid
Most types of financial aid are renewable yearly, but many require renewed applications or documentation. It is always recommended that you complete a FAFSA as early as possible each year. Unless you plan to waive the FAFSA each year, the Financial Aid Office will not renew your aid until a FAFSA has been completed. Make sure to keep an eye on your student portal document tracking page so that you never miss a deadline.
Finding Additional Aid
There are two major forms of additional aid that students can apply for during their time at WJU. WJU offers several institutional scholarships to returning students as a result of applications or participatory activities. See the “Institutional Aid” tab for additional information on these types of aid and others. Outside scholarships are another form of additional aid that students can apply for. Several search engines can be found in our forms and resources page for students to browse.

A loan is a form of financial aid that must be repaid with interest. Loans are a form of need-based aid, meaning they are offered based on financial need as determined by the FAFSA. At William Jessup University, we understand student loans play an important role in funding education. Grasping the impact of choosing to borrow money to help pay for your education is vital and the Financial Aid Office continually strives to give the best information and guidance available.

Federal Stafford Loans are a form of federal student loans for undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in college at least half time.

Interest Rate: 4.45% for BOTH Subsidized & Unsubsidized Stafford loans disbursed between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018 3.76% for BOTH Subsidized & Unsubsidized Stafford loans disbursed between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017
Repayment: Typically begins 6 months after student graduates, drops below 6 units or withdraws from school, but specific lenders may have different repayment requirements.

An Unsubsidized loan is a loan in which the student is responsible for the interest that accrues on the loan during and after school.

Net Price Calculator
The Net Price Calculator is hosted by The College Board, so a new window will open when you launch. You can expect to take about 15 minutes to get through it the first time. While every care has been taken to ensure as much accuracy as possible, we simply cannot test every possible scenario or combination. If your results seem particularly bizarre, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
 

First Time Freshmen

LAUNCH THE NET PRICE CALCULATOR  
 

Transfer Students

LAUNCH THE NET PRICE CALCULATOR  

At WJU, we pride ourselves on reviewing the entirety of your personal financial situation, and then making a final decision. You are NOT simply the result of a formulaic bunch of numbers. You are a unique individual, created by our Lord, and will be treated as such!

Important Considerations
IS NOT For Everyone Currently, the NPC is designed for US Citizens or Permanent Residents who are planning on attending college in a year or two. The calculator may not fully capture your unique situation, so we always recommend contacting the financial aid department for more personalized information.
IS NOT Totally Inclusive of All WJU Aid Programs There are a few things that just can’t be perfectly incorporated on an estimator – most notably our need-based WJU Grant and the CA State Grant. The calculator also cannot account for performance-based scholarships such as Athletics, Music, and Competitive Department Scholarships.
IS Confidential and Anonymous You may choose to send your results to a personal email if you would like to save the results for later viewing.
IS a “What If” Tool It is designed for you to run it multiple times to see “what might happen if…”
IS NOT Perfectly Accurate It is only as good as the data you enter. If your data is incorrect, the estimate will also be incorrect – either too high or too low.
IS Educational You should never rule out a school simply because of ‘sticker price’, or even by the results of the NPC. Using a school’s calculator is another tool to find out more about a school in which you are interested. Please do not stop considering any school because of price! Cost is certainly a factor — but it should never be the only factor.
IS NOT a Guarantee of Financial Aid This will come from the WJU Financial Aid Office after you apply and are accepted to WJU.
IS NOT an Application of Admission to WJU or a Financial Aid Application Apply to WJU or Complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)
IS NOT an Accurate Payment Estimator The NPC starts with something called a ‘Cost of Attendance’ – or COA. This includes the sticker price (typically tuition, room, board and mandatory fees) BUT it also includes standard estimates for other expenses you might incur throughout the year – such as travel, personal items, books, and even living costs (like pizza, movies and laundry!).Remember…these are just estimates! What you will pay directly to WJU will most likely be substantially less than the COA.
IS NOT Static Information Your info may change from semester to semester; federal and state laws certainly change on a whim; and WJU aid programs are subject to change/modification from time to time.
