The figures provided in this Cost of Attendance are used solely for the purposes of determining financial aid eligibility and are NOT a reflection of a student’s bill.
  • Beginning with the 2014-15 school year some students will incur additional charges for taking certain courses. These may be in the form of College of Business Differential Tuition Fees for certain College of Business courses, and/or other miscellaneous course fees that can be found at http://www.jmu.edu/registrar/coursefaq.shtml. For this reason, the Tuition figure used in the 2014-15 Cost of Attendance is a calculated average for undergraduate students. The figure includes the basic full-time rate and an inflationary value based on the additional fees some students will incur. Because it's an average, it is very unlikely any student will have this exact Tuition charge on their bill, but this is the figure that will be used for the purposes of calculating financial aid eligibility.
  • The basic "block" academic year Tuition for full-time undergraduates is $9,662 for in-state students and $24,522 for out-of-state students. Enrolling in courses with additional fees will increase this cost. Students should contact the University Business Office for more details regarding their actual charges.
  • The Room, Board (i.e. food), Books, Travel, Personal, and Loan Fees figures are an estimate of what an average full-time undergraduate student will spend during the academic year. Students could spend more or less depending on their individual living situations and spending habits.
