 Student Accounts

Tuition and fees are due prior to the start of each term. Payment will be the term's charges less financial aid (i.e. scholarships, grants, and loans) that is listed as pending or posted on the student's financial account.

Online payments may be transacted through EagleNet by E-check, VISA, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. Paper checks should be mailed to JBU to the attention of the university Cashier.

Students who have not paid in full at the start of the term will be enrolled in a payment plan for that term and 20% of term charges are due at that time. A $50 payment plan fee is applicable. The university reserves the right to change the fee structure as needed to fund the payment plan program. Students who fail to comply with their payment schedule are subject to finance charges and termination of enrollment.  Students who are in arrears on their student financial account will not be allowed to enroll in a new term. Additionally, official transcripts of academic credits are not released while any balance is owed JBU. The university engages professional collection agencies when collecting delinquent accounts.
