But it’s an investment that can pay big dividends. According to the U.S. Census, bachelor’s degree graduates typically earn about twice as much as high school graduates, and about 50% more than associate degree graduates.

5 things to know about financing your JBU Online education:

1. The majority of JBU Online students receive financial assistance in the form of grants, loans, or employer reimbursement. Check out all your options!

2. Our stated cost ($420/hour) includes tuition and all fees, which means that you won’t be surprised by your tuition bill.

Calculating Tuition Costs



Average cost per semester: $420 x 12 hours (avg.) = $5,040 

 $420 x 39 hours = $16,380 total

 $420 x 51 hours = $21,420 total

3. Except for extenuating circumstances (like defaulting on a previous student loan), you’ll likely qualify for student loans. Your eligibility is not impacted by your credit score.

4. The application for federal student aid (FAFSA) is free, and takes just a few moments to complete.

5. If you’ve already applied for financial aid at another institution, you can transfer your aid to JBU.
