JWU has adopted an institutional policy, whereby the total of all university funded or administered monies awarded to a single student may not exceed a specified dollar amount during an academic year. This amount is determined prior to each year’s financial aid awarding process.

Students studying through the College of Online Education are ineligible for JWU institutional scholarships, JWU institutional grants and JWU institutional awards.
