Making the decision to live off-campus, and are not sure how to make it work financially? Check out JMU Financial Aid’s website for information and contact numbers to discuss options and if current loans or scholarships can be used to cover off-campus living costs.
In addition to resources provided by the Financial Aid Office, Off-Campus Life hosts monthly budget workshops to help students learn ways to create a basic budget, save, and pay back debt. Check student emails for information on dates and times of these “Mo’ Money, Less Problems” Budget Workshops! There is also a Budgeting Section in Making Harrisonburg Home on this Website which offers additional resources.
