Early Commit Track

Get ahead in the college process

If you are serious about JBU and want to commit to attending JBU before the regular May 1 deadline, we would love for you to do so! The early commit track deadline is January 8, 2018.

If you commit to JBU early you'll be able to:

  • Receive your financial aid package before January
  • Register for classes in April instead of the middle of June
  • Find out your dorm and pick a roommate in January instead of May
  • Have peace of mind that your college decision is done early!

The Process

  • Be accepted to JBU
  • Visit campus
  • Submit a housing or tuition deposit
  • Request an early financial aid offer using your student portal
  • File your FAFSA by November 15 (or let JBU know you will not be filing)
  • Accept your financial aid offer

If you are planning to attend a Scholarship Weekend Event to compete for our competitive scholarships, you’ll need to attend the fall event in order to have your scholarships decided by the December 1 deadline. Attending the event can count as a visit to JBU.

Similarly, if you are planning on applying for art major or music major scholarships, you’ll need to have turned in your portfolio or auditioned by November 15 so you can find out about those scholarships before the early commit deadline.
