Refund Information

Fees, other than tuition, board, and campus residential charges, are not refundable, except by withdrawal during the 100 percent refund period or in cases of cancellation by the University of student registration or courses. No tuition refund will be made in cases of suspension or dismissal. A student is officially withdrawn only after his/her withdrawal is acted upon by the Registrar.

University and Course Withdrawals

Upon withdrawal from the University, any refunds due will be released only upon surrender of the Student Identification Card. A written request must be submitted to the Controller's Office before a refund check will be processed.

When a student officially withdraws or reduces his or her class load, credit for tuition charges will be made based on the following percentage schedules:

  • Fall and Spring Traditional Semesters
    • First week of classes - 100%
    • Second week of classes - 75%
    • Third week of classes - 50%
    • Fourth week of classes - 25%
    • After fourth week of classes - None
  • Summer Traditional Terms
    • First week of classes - 100%
    • After first week of classes - None
  • Eight-Week Accelerated Terms - On Campus
    • First two weeks of classes - 100%
    • After second week of classes - None
  • Eight-Week Accelerated Terms - Online
    • First week of class - 100%
    • Starting second week of classes - None

Refunds of credit balances from financial aid will be available after aid is posted to the tuition account. Financial aid begins to be posted at the end of the drop/add period.

First-time students attending JU and continuing students who completely withdraw from the University and received Title IV aid (i.e., Pell Grant, SEOG, College Work Study, Perkins Loan, Stafford Loan or whose parents borrow on the PLUS Loan program) will have refunds calculated according to Federal law. Students withdrawing under these provisions should refer to the Title IV refund policies.

APPROVAL, WITHDRAWAL AND REFUND POLICY

Students Called to Active Duty or Deployment
When students are called up for active service or deployment during the term and cannot continue attending class(es), they will be offered the opportunity to withdraw from their class(es), regardless if the withdrawal date has passed. Tuition paid using Tuition Assistance (TA) will be refunded/billed as per the printed refund schedule. Tuition paid by the student will be refunded at 100 percent. Such students will be required to submit a copy of their orders or a letter from their Commander or the Base Educational Officer informing the school of the call to active service or deployment that will prevent them from attending class.

Campus Residence Charges
When a student officially withdraws from the University, credit for residential and board plan charges will be made based on the following percentage schedules. No refund will be made in cases of suspension or dismissal.

  • Fall and Spring Semesters
    • First week of classes - 80%
    • Second week of classes - 60%
    • Third week of classes - 40%
    • Fourth week of classes - 20%
    • After fourth week of classes - None
  • Summer Terms
    • First week of classes - 80%
    • After first week of classes - None

FLIGHT FEES

JU's contractual agreement with Aerosim Flight Academy does not contain a 100 percent refund policy on flight fees. The Aerosim Flight Academy agreement requires the University to pay in advance all flight fees. Therefore, students registering for courses involving flight training must pay all flight fees at the time of registration. If a student drops the flight course during the drop/add period, the student is still liable for the flight fees that are not refunded by Aerosim Flight Academy. Flight course fees are subject to change without notice due to changing FAA requirements and price changes by  Aerosim Flight Academy.   ​
