Understanding My Bill
Charges are applied when you register for classes. Your bill will include tuition for the semester or the term you just registered for, as well as other applicable charges and fees. Charges may also be applied throughout the semester in the form of fines and penalties, registration activity, prorated room and board, updated financial aid awards, etc. You should check your account statement online regularly to stay informed about your account and avoid overdue charges.
NOTE: Approved financial aid will be subtracted from your balance automatically. If you are expecting financial aid that does not appear on your bill, please contact Student Financial Services.
Costs & Fees
What are these charges for?
Book Bundle: Term fee, charged during each term of your enrollment. The Dolphin Direct Textbook Program provides all undergraduate students access to required textbooks and access codes for an affordable flat rate per semester. Learn more about the Book Bundle.
Document Fee: The document fee covers notary services provided by the Registrar’s Office, transcripts, education verifications, and other documents requiring official signatures and the University seal.

When are bills issued?
Upon registering for classes, electronic billing statements will be sent via JU email on the 15th of each month. Student financial statements can be viewed anytime on the self-service portal.
Authorized users – parents or guardians whom students have authorized to view their billing statement and to make payments on their account – receive statements on the 17th of the month. Learn more about Authorized Users and how to set one.
