Overview of Cost Information Per Semester

Application Fee: For each application presented to JSBC, there is a non-refundable Application Fee. The fee is $50.00 per individual or $80.00 per couple.
General Fee: The General Fee helps to support the cost of various services such as the Library and the Reference and Computer Rooms. It will be assessed at the rate of $15 per course taken.

Tuition: Tuition Fees are applied to the cost of providing academic personnel, facilities, and equipment.

College Tuition Fees.......$195 per course

Rooms: Comfortable living arrangements are available in the residential hall at the following rates:

Shared Room*: $700 per semester (*upon request and availability)

**Note - A $200 security deposit is required of all students living in the Residential Hall. This fee must be paid in full upon acceptance. This is a one-time, refundable fee. This fee is only required to be paid the first semester and will be applied each semester thereafter. The fee will be refunded once the student has completed their course study and their room has been inspected.**

** Rooms are subject to availability; due to limited space the dorm rooms are only available to those students who are 25 years of age and under.**

Board: Due to the different and varied schedules of most students, it is difficult to provide standard meals in a time frame which is convenient for every student. Therefore, the board plan has been discontinued, and students may make arrangements of their choice.

    Method of Payment

    At the time of registration, the following criteria must be met:
    • Payment in full in US currency.
    • If not able to pay in full, a down payment will be required of all other students at the rate of 1/3 of the total balance - See Deferred Payment Plan below.
    • Any student with an outstanding balance must submit that balance plus 1/3 down payment in order to register for the following semester.
    • Part-time students must pay according to the following schedule:

    ~ 1 class = 100 percent of tuition and fees
    ~ 2-4 classes = 1/3 of the total balance - See Deferred Payment Plan below.

    Deferred Payment Plan

    There is a $40 administrative fee for participants in this program. Upon registration, the Deferred Payment Plan requires one-third of the total charges. The remaining balance is payable in three equal installments: 30, 60, and 90 days after the official registration date.

    Example: (Based on 15 College Credit Hours)
    Total Charges: $2,240
    Minimum due at registration: $745
    First installment (30 days): $498.33
    Second installment (60 days): $498.33
    Final installment (90 days): $498.33

    *This is an example, costs may vary dependent upon credit hours taken and necessary fees applied
    During registration, you will be given a Promissory Agreement to carefully read, complete, and sign. The Business Office will record the entire balance owed and approve the Promissory Agreement. (Note: The larger the amount you put down at registration, the lower your payments will be.)

    Advanced Payments
    Payments may be made up to one semester in advance at any time following acceptance.

    Payment Policy
    All accounts are due and payable at the beginning of the semester. We strongly encourage our students to pay in full at registration. In case of inability to pay in full, a student may use the Deferred Payment Plan.

    Foreign Students
    JSBC is unable to offer on-campus programs for international students. However, our international viewers should consider our Online Learning Program. Please refer to our website at for more details.

    JSBC Withdrawal Refund
    A refund is applicable for tuition and room. Up to 50% of each entered deferred payment unit can be refunded 1 week after due date of the particular unit payment. After that, there will be no refund available. The 1/3 down payment at the beginning of the semester is nonrefundable.

    Students suspended from school for disciplinary reasons have no right to a refund of any tuition paid, or to the cancellation of amounts due.

    *One month's room fee will be assessed to resident students withdrawing prior to and during the first week.

    Nonattendance alone does not constitute an official withdrawal. Withdrawal from JSBC is not the same as dropping a course.

    Dropped Courses
    Courses dropped within the published time period allowed for the adding of courses will be credited 100 percent. No tuition refund will be given for course drops initiated after the published date.

    Miscellaneous Information

    Health Insurance
    Health insurance coverage is the responsibility of the student.

    There are several restaurants and a mall within walking distance. A wide variety of restaurants are available within one or two miles of the campus. Students may prepare their own meals. A refrigerator and microwave oven are provided in the common area on each floor. (Range or conventional oven is NOT available.) As well, students may bring their own small appliances to keep in their room.

    The cost for textbooks (approximately $100 per semester) will vary depending on the individual choice and the number of classes taken. The figure quoted is an approximate amount. Textbooks are purchased from the college bookstore and must be paid for in full at the time of registration.
