In-State Undergraduate and Graduate

Effective August 1, 2011, in-state, public tuition and fees for undergrad and graduate students will be paid based on service member/veteran's eligibility tier.  Assuming 100% eligible and Virginia resident, all in-state tuition/fees will be paid by VA to JMU. JMU is fine to wait on the VA portion of tuition each semester. If eligibility tier is less than 100%, dependent will be responsible for the difference between actual JMU instate tuition/fee charges and VA payment.

For information about JMU charges and payment options, please see the University Business Office website.
