JFK Medical Center Muhlenberg Harold B and Dorothy A. Snyder Schools
recognize that many students and their families need assistance in meeting the
cost of education.
Financial need should not deter a student from applying for admission,
as there are multiple sources of financial aid available to incoming and
The primary purpose of the financial aid program is to provide economic
assistance to students who demonstrate financial need, and who because
of this need, would otherwise be unable to pursue their education. The
student’s financial need is the difference between the educational
cost (including tuition, fees, books, maintenance at home or room at the
Schools, transportation and certain incidental expenses) and the estimated
student and family contribution. A student may apply for federal student
aid by completing the "Free Application for Federal Student Aid" (FAFSA),
which is available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.
The Schools, within the limits imposed by funds available, make every
effort to provide a financial aid package which equals the determined
need. A financial aid package may include a combination of scholarships,
grants, loans and work-study monies. The total amount of financial aid
offered to a student shall not exceed his need.
Applications for assistance are considered only after a student has been
enrolled; all students are encouraged to apply for assistance. Students
applying for financial aid are considered for all programs for which they
are eligible. More information about existing financial aid programs can
be obtained through the Office of the Director of Financial Aid at 908-668-2408.
