Financial Aid Office

The Financial Aid Office at Thomas Jefferson University assists students in securing federal, state, institutional and private funding to help meet the cost of education at Jefferson. We take pride in working individually with prospective and enrolled students to make sure they have all of the information and tools they need.

We provide numerous support services to assist with financial literacy and educational debt management. Every student has access to a financial aid counselor who will help guide them. 

We encourage you to apply for financial aid regardless of your financial circumstances, so that we can assist you with options that are available. A majority of students at Jefferson receive some type of financial assistance. We are committed to making education affordable for every qualified student.
