Any vehicle that will be parked on campus in Siloam Springs must have a JBU parking sticker. This sticker is valid for one academic year, fall semester through summer term III. The registration fee is waived for graduate students. For more information, refer to Campus Safety on the web, email, or call (479) 524-7403.

Graduate students attending classes on JBU’s Siloam Springs’ campus or visiting there regularly need parking decals. Students may register online and the decal is valid for the full academic year.

If you do not go to the Siloam Springs’ campus regularly, but need to visit for any reason between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm on a weekday, you will need to request a temporary parking permit from the administrative assistant for your program area. They will email you a temporary permit that you will print and display on your dash to avoid citation.

Student Accounts

Tuition and fees are due prior to the start of each semester. Payment will be the semester'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 semester will be enrolled in a payment plan for that semester and 20% of the semester's 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 semester. 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.
