PAYMENT OF STUDENT ACCOUNTS
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 November 2012 for the Spring 2013 term, and beginning April 2013 for the Fall 2013 term. Summarized monthly statements will be mailed to the student's address of record. Detailed Student Account Statements may be accessed via WebAdvisor or Parent Access to the Web at any time.
Past due balances may be subject to placement with a collection agency. Should such action be taken, the student will be responsible for all additional collection costs, attorney fees, and/or other fees incurred as the result of the collection of any amount not paid. As a student at Jacksonville University, you consent to Jacksonville University, its affiliates, agents, and service providers, the following: using written, electronic, or verbal means to contact you as the law allows, including but not limited to, contact by manual calling methods, prerecorded or artificial voice messages, emails, and/or automated telephone dialing systems, contacting you by telephone at any telephone number associated with your account (currently or in the future) including wireless telephone numbers, and authorization to record telephone calls regarding your account in assurance of quality and/or other reasons.
Traditional Term Payment Deadlines
- Fall charges - August 31, 2012
- Spring charges - January 18, 2013
- Summer charges - May 15, 2013
Checks or money orders should be made payable to Jacksonville University and, if mailed, addressed to Jacksonville University, Attn: Controller's Office, 2800 University Boulevard North, Jacksonville, Florida 32211-3395. A service charge between the minimum of $25 and up to five percent of the face value of the check will be assessed by the University to the student’s account for any check returned by the bank, including those “drawn on uncollected deposits.” Checks returned for insufficient funds must be redeemed with cash or a cashier’s check promptly in order to avoid legal action or administrative dismissal of the student from the University. The University reserves the right to require payment by means other than check if an item is returned for any reason.
Visa, American Express, MasterCard and Discover are accepted at the Cashier's Window. Electronic Payment (credit cards and ACH bank drafts) can be made online via WebAdvisor or Parent Access to the Web.
Tuition Payment Plans
JU Tuition payment plans (available to Traditional Undergraduate students only) are term specific. Prior to applying, a student must be fully registered for classes in the coming term. They must also have completed their housing and meal plan contract with the Residential Life Office, if applicable. A new application is required each term and a participation fee of $35 will be assessed for each new plan. Applications for future term payment plans will be available at the appropriate times.
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.
Payment is due by the 15th of every month. Plans are available for Fall and Spring terms only. Monthly Tuition Payment Plans for the Fall term will be divided over a 6 month period with due dates of May 15, June 15, July 15, August 15, September 15, and October 15. A $35 non-refundable fee is charged upfront to participate and may be included in your first monthly payment. Likewise, monthly Tuition Payment Plans for the Spring term 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. Again a $35 fee is charged upfront to participate. Note that the length of your repayment term will depend on when you apply for a payment plan. Your first payment will be the next day 15 available. For instance, if you submit your application on June 25th for a Fall payment plan, the next available payment date will be July 15th; therefore, your balance will be divided into four monthly payments (July through October), rather than six.
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 WebAdvisor for Parents feature which allows students to create accounts for parents and/or guardians. This will allow them to see grades, make payments, view schedules and more. 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.
REAPPLYING FOR FINANCIAL AID
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 15th for the following Fall semester (visit www.fafsa.ed.gov for further information). 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 1st for the Fall semester and December 1st 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.
CAMPUS DEBIT CARD
A student's Jacksonville University identification card also serves as the JU Dolphin 1Card - a "debit card" to use for purchases on-campus, as well as at various participating vendors off-campus. The card may be used at the campus bookstore, campus laundry facilities, copy and vending machines, etc. 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 remaining meals available according to the plan. Students may also use money deposited on their Dolphin 1Card ("Dolphin Dollars") to purchase food at the various eateries on-campus. Any cash balance remaining on the card will roll over to the next semester; however, the balance of a meal plan will not carry over. Please visit www.judolphin1card.com for further information and to register your account.
