What is a deposit?

A deposit is a relatively small sum of money that officially holds your spot in the incoming class.

January 1 – February 28: $250
March 1 – August Enrollment: $300

Submit your deposit

Note: Submitting a deposit costs money but it's not an additional charge. When you pay a $300 deposit, your balance for your first semester will decrease by $300.

When should I deposit?

The New Student Tuition/Housing Deposit submission can be completed at any time during the application process, but the earlier you do it, the higher priority you'll have for housing placement and class registration.

Depositing now instead of next month could be the difference between 7am classes and 11am classes.

What happens if my plans change?

The deposit is fully refundable until May 1 of the summer before fall classes begin.

What does my deposit do?

For all students

The date you deposit sets your class registration priority, so the earlier, the better.

For on-campus students

The deposit also covers an on-campus student's room deposit and orientation fee.

The date you deposit sets your priority for housing placement. The earlier you deposit, the more likely you'll be placed in your first-choice residence hall.

The deposit form does ask for housing preferences, so if you're not sure which residence hall to pick, watch this overview of housing options for incoming students or explore all the options on your own.

For off-campus students

The deposit also covers an off-campus student's orientation fee with the leftover going toward the first semester cost. Students are required to live on campus unless they are 22 years of age or older, married, a senior (90 credit hours) or living with parents.

The deposit form includes a commuter notification form which will inform JBU of where you are living.
