Tuition & Fees

To obtain the breakdown of JMU tuition charges go to the University Business Office’s website.

When you are calculating the cost of attending JMU it is important to know that there will be additional fees beyond the cost of tuition. These additional fees can include:

  • The International Student Administration Fee. This is a $100 added charged every semester to all international students on an F-1 or J-1 visa.
  • A Health Insurance Fee. Unless you have your own health insurance policy, all students on an F-1 or J-1 visa will automatically be added to a health insurance policy sponsored by JMU. Read more information about health insurance on the Health Matters page.
  • Books and School Supplies. The cost for textbooks is approximately $300/semester and is not included in your tuition.
  • Other personal expenses such as food, clothing, travel during breaks, etc.

How to Pay Your JMU Tuition & Fees

To view your bill, you need to login to QuickBill by accessing it on MyMadison (for students). QuikBill provides you and your family with instant access to your student account charges. QuikBill is currently configured so that the student is the only who can view and pay his or her bill online through this system. If a family member or sponsor of that student needs access to QuikBill, the student will need to enable this individual to view and/or pay the bill by creating an account for this individual. Also through QuickBill, installment payment plan can be set-up. To make payments towards your tuition and bills, you can:

  • Wire funds to JMU:  Contact Tammy L Kiser, Electronic Funds Coordinator, (540) 568-7909

  • Pay online: by credit card. [Please note that JMU handles MasterCard, American Express or Discovery card only]

  • Set-up a bank account in the U.S. This will facilitate the transfer of funds from your home country to the U.S. You will then be able to write checks and/or transfer money directly from your bank account to your JMU student account online. A trip to the downtown Bank of America will be scheduled during the first or second week of classes.
