  • Coverage for August 1 through July 31
  • Full-time traditional undergraduate and international students

All full-time traditional undergraduate students are required to maintain health insurance coverage while attending Jacksonville University. Students who have private coverage can provide proof of coverage to the Controller's Office by the published deadlines and they will not be added to the group coverage provided through the University. If no waiver is provided by the published deadline, the student will be automatically added to the group policy and the charge will be added to their student account.

A one-time deposit required of all new students residing in University residence facilities. The University retains this deposit as long as the student is in residence. Any assessments to the student for damage of University property will be charged directly to the resident student’s account except in the student’s final semester of residency. At the end of the final semester, this deposit is credited to the resident student’s account, and any unused balance is refundable.

LATE PAYMENT INTEREST FEE - 18% interest rate
Interest is charged on the outstanding Tuition and Fee balance not received by the payment deadline for a given semester. This interest fee will be posted to the students account weekly and will continue being incurred until the unpaid balance is paid. At the end of each semester, unpaid accounts will be sent to a collection agency and all additional collection costs will be the responsibility of the student.

TRANSCRIPT FEE - costs vary
The student or graduate must request transcripts in writing or using their JU E-mail accout. Transcripts will not be released if there is a past-due balance on account.

Resident students receive U.S. mail and official University mail through assigned, on-campus mailboxes in the University Post Office located in the Bartlett-Kinne University Center. Keys are issued during registration. Lost keys should be reported to the post office immediately. If the key is found and returned within two weeks, the student’s account will be credited $3.

LOCK AND KEY FEE - $55 per semester

The aviation management/flight operations program requires additional fees for certain courses involving flight training. These courses are offered in cooperation with Aerosim Flight Academy.

In order to receive clearance to fly, students must pay flight course fees in full when they register for flight courses. All obligations to the University must be paid or covered with guaranteed financial aid in order to receive a clearance to fly.  Guaranteed financial aid may be applied to flight fees; however, clearance to fly will only be given if the remaining balance, after guaranteed financial aid is considered, has been paid. Tuition prepayment plans may not be applied to flight fees. There are no exceptions to this requirement.

Flight course fees are based on a course allocation table. Because flying is a skill, the student’s actual course cost may vary and is dependent on his or her ability, knowledge, and effort expended toward acquiring pilot certification. Any additional training time for each lesson is not included in the flight fees and must be paid directly to the flight school. It is the student's responsibility to track their account balance at the flight school and to request in advance a cost estimate for completion, if it appears that the student will run out of money before finishing a course. This way students can have sufficient time to procure the additional funds and prevent being grounded. Flight course fees are subject to change without notice due to changing FAA requirements and price changes by the Aerosim Flight Academy. For policies involving the refund of flight course fees, see “Refunds” at end of this section.

Registration is scheduled prior to the beginning of each term on dates specified in the academic calendar. Refer to the Academic Calendar on the University website at http://www.ju.edu/. At the time of registration, each student must pay in full the total charges for the semester or session; less approved financial aid, to validate his or her registration. Charges include tuition, room, board, and flight fees.

Early registration is a privilege in which each currently enrolled student may participate if his or her current semester account is paid in full or any un-posted financial aid for the current semester has been approved and all documents have been completed. The early registration periods are listed in the Academic Calendar on the web. 

Past due balances should be paid in full in order to participate in early registration beginning in April 2010 for the Fall semester and during November 2010 for the 2011 Spring semester. Summarized monthly statements will be mailed each month. Detailed Student Account Statements may be accessed via WebAdvisor or Parent Access to the Web at any time.

Prepayment Plans
JU Tuition Payment Plans are term specific.  Plan applications are available online via WebAdvisor or Parent Access to the Web. Prior to applying, a student must be registered for classes in that term.  They must also have completed their housing and meal plan contract with the Residential Life Office, if applicable.  A new application will be required each term.  Applications for future terms will be available at the appropriate times.  A $35 fee is charged upfront to participate.

The amount to finance will be determined by the total amount of tuition, room (if applicable), board (if applicable), and student health insurance (if applicable) less Financial Aid (scholarships, grants, and/or loans), Pre-Paid or 529 plans, sponsorships, etc.  Financial Aid and other resources must be in a status that is considered a pending resource; these are indicated on your Financial Aid Award Letter or on your Student Account Statement as an anticipated or disbursed credit.  In order for your monthly payment to calculate correctly, all financial aid documents, certifications, verifications, loan entrances and promissory notes must be completed.

If you are an Aviation Management and Flight Operations (AVO) Major, please be advised that flight fees cannot be financed through a tuition payment plan.  Payment in full for your flight course is required to authorize a “clearance to fly.”  A “clearance to fly” includes, but is not limited to, the payment or financing of your total tuition, room board, and student health insurance (if applicable), as well as payment in full for your flight course directly to JU to bring your term balance to $0.00.

Plans are available for Fall and Spring terms only. Fall Monthly Semester Payment Plans will be divided over a 6 month period. Payment due dates are May 15, June 15, July 15, August 15, September 15, and October 15. A $35 fee is charged upfront to participate (payment plans established after August 15th, the first payment will be due immediately). 

Likewise, Spring Monthly Semester Payment Plans will be divided over a 6 month period. Payment due dates are November 15, December 15, January 15, February 15, March 15, and April 15. Monthly payments are subject to change based on registration activity, room and board adjustments, OR any changes to your financial aid package.  Monthly statements will be mailed to the student’s permanent address on record unless otherwise specified on the application.  Account Status is also available on the web via WebAdvisor. Don’t forget our new feature, WebAdvisor for Parents!  Students are now able to create accounts for parents and/or guardians to use in WebAdvisor. 

Payments may be mailed, made at the Cashier’s Window, or processed online.  Please specify when making a payment online that your payment is for your tuition payment plan.  Delinquent payments will result in the cancellation of the payment plan and the accrual of finance charges based on the past due balance at the time of cancellation. 

Students receiving financial aid must reapply every year. In order to be able to deduct anticipated aid from semester charges, it is necessary to apply early and return all requested paperwork promptly.

Applicants for any type of student financial assistance should file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) no later than April 15 for the following fall semester. The Financial Aid Office processes applications on a first-come, first-served basis. Awards to new incoming students are sent out beginning in February and March; awards to continuing students are sent out beginning in February and subject to revision following the posting of spring semester grades.

Although the Financial Aid Office accepts and processes new applications on a rolling basis throughout the academic year, it cannot guarantee that processing will be complete for paperwork that is received after August 1 for the Fall semester and December 1 for the Spring semester. If the Financial Aid Office is unable to confirm a student’s aid eligibility prior to the payment due date(s), the student will be responsible for payment in full on or before the payment due date(s) and will be reimbursed once the aid is processed.

Commonly called the Dolphin Card, the JU debit card doubles as a student identification card. It may be used to pay for campus bookstore purchases, meal plan purchases, laundry purchases and vending machines. To activate the debit card function, students must deposit funds to their individual debit card accounts through the Controller’s Office. Each purchase reduces the debit card balance by the amount of the purchase. For students enrolled in one of the University’s meal plans, the card is swiped for each meal or meal equivalent and the card system automatically tracks meals available according to the plan. Students may also use money deposited on their debit card to purchase food at various locations around campus. The balance remaining on the card rolls over to the next semester; however the balance of a meal plan does not carry over.
