Refunds of Credit Balances

If you expect a refund of excess financial aid, complete the e-Check Banking Info link on your EagleNet Student Account. Refunds are paid by e-check (Direct Deposit) to your bank account. Confirmation of e-check payment will be emailed immediately to you when the electronic payment is sent to the designated bank.

Online Payments

Card payments for tuition and fees will incur a service fee billed by Official Payments, JBU's e-commerce provider. The 2.5% service fee applies only to card payments. JBU offers a no-cost electronic check option as an online alternative. Traditional paper checks or money orders may be mailed to the University Cashier. Cash is also accepted as an in-person transaction at the Cashier window.
