Q: How do I get financial aid (grants, loans and work study)?

Answer:

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov. (Computer labs and kiosks are available for student use throughout campus). You fill out the application using your prior year's tax information. The response can take from 2-3 days. You will receive a Student Aid Report from the Department of Education by email or letter. First time students to TJC will also receive a letter and continuing students will receive an email, within 2 weeks.
