Financial Aid is available for Automotive and Diesel Technology students who qualify.
Jones Technical Institute, a nonprofit institution, participates in a variety of financial aid programs supported by the U.S. Department of Education. The objective of these programs is to provide funds for students who would not otherwise be able to continue with their education. Students must meet eligibility requirements in order to participate.
Jones Technical Institute administers its financial aid programs in accordance with prevailing federal and state laws and its own institutional policies. Students are responsible for providing all requested documentation in a timely manner. Failure to do so could jeopardize the student’s financial aid eligibility.
In order to remain eligible for financial aid, a student must maintain satisfactory academic progress as defined in the Jones Technical Institute Catalog. It is recommended that students apply for financial aid as early as possible in order to allow sufficient time for application processing. Financial aid is awarded on an award-year basis; therefore, it may be necessary to re-apply for aid for each award year. Students may have to apply for financial aid more than once during the calendar year, depending on their date of enrollment. Students who need additional information and guidance should contact the Financial Aid Office.
This is a federal aid program designed to make funds available to those who qualify in approved schools. No repayment is required.

Federal Direct Stafford and PLUS Loans enable students/parents to borrow directly from the U.S. Federal Government in order to finance educational expenses. These loans are available for students who qualify.
Subsidized Stafford Loans are for students with financial need as determined by federal regulations. No interest is charged while you are in school at least half-time.
Unsubsidized Stafford Loans are for students and are not based on financial need. Interest is accrued during all periods.
William D. Ford Federal Direct PLUS Loans are low-interest loans for parents to help their children meet the cost of post-secondary education. These loans are not based on need, but when combined with other resources, cannot exceed the student’s cost of attendance. A credit check on the parent borrower is required and either or both parents may borrow through this program. Repayment begins within 60 days of final disbursement of the loan within a loan period. However, parents may request deferment of payments while the student is attending at least halftime.
Note: Repayment of subsidized and unsubsidized loans begins six months after the student graduates, withdraws from school, or falls below half-time enrollment status.
Scholarships available include the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program and the Children of Deceased or Disabled Veterans or Children of Servicemen Classified as Prisoners of War or Missing in Action Scholarship.
