Financial Aid

The purpose of financial aid is to help supplement a student's resources in order to cover educational expenses. 

Jordan Parish Assistance Program

Through the generous bequest of CKS benefactor Helen Jordan, the Jordan Parish Assistance Program (JPAP) was established.  The program is open to all commuting students enrolled in degree programs regardless of denomination.  Beginning with the Fall 2012 semester, the JPAP program will pay 50% of the tuition charges of participating students.  The student's parish is responsible for 25% and the student is responsible for the remaining 25% as well as student fees and thesis/research papers.  Students are required to submit a new sponsorship form to their parish each academic year.  Students must maintain a 2.0 cumulative average and complete their degree requirements within the statute of limitations.  This program is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Further information is available in the Finance Office.
