How does the Financial Aid Program work?
If you qualify for Financial Aid, and have a balance left over after tuition and fees, a financial aid account will automatically be opened on your behalf.

The account will be valid through the second week of classes.
How do I Link my JCard?

Online students who wish to obtain a student ID card will need to pay the $10 JCard fee prior to visiting a JCard office. You may pay this fee at Student Accounts or JCard online. Once the fee is paid, bring your receipt and a govenment issued ID card to any JCard office to obtain your ID.
Do I need to have a JCard to purchase my books?
If you want to purchase books from a campus bookstore you will need your JCard. If you are an online student who wish to purchase books using the GPC online bookstore, you do not need your JCard. To purchase books online go to the GPC Online Bookstore and select Financial Aid-Campus Card at check-out.
I tried using my JCard but I received a card error, what does that mean?
There are a few reasons a JCard will not work on campus.
- If you are not enrolled for the current class term your JCard will not be active; therefore it will not work on campus.
- You may not have accepted the JCard policy. Accept the JCard Policy
- You may not be using your most current JCard. Contact JCard Administration to verify that you are using your most current ID Card.
