What does my deposit do?

For all students

The date you deposit reserves your class registration time, so the earlier, the better.

For on-campus students

The deposit covers a student's room deposit and orientation fee. The date you deposit reserves your place in line for residence hall choice. The deposit form does ask for housing preferences, so if you're not sure which of the four residence halls to pick, explore your options and take a virtual tour.

For off-campus students

The deposit covers the 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.
