Undergraduate Tuition & Fees for 2017-2018

Virginia Resident

Non-Virginia Resident

























All tuition rates are by semester.

In accordance with Virginia law, in-state students who initially entered a Virginia public institution during or after the fall 2006 semester will be assessed a surcharge for any credit hours over 125% of their degree program requirement. Exceptions may apply when credit hours are required for an additional program.

Tuition charges are based on the course career and not the academic level of the student. An undergraduate student given permission to take a graduate level course will be charged the graduate rate in addition to the appropriate undergraduate charges. All JMU approved internships will be charged the regular tuition rate.

Miscellaneous Fees, Fines and Deposits

Students may encounter other fees, fines and deposits depending on their course of study or specific needs. These could include:

Fees are required for credit by exam, housing contracts, Utility Deposit Assistance Program (UDAP), certain classes and some health center visits. A fee may also be assessed to reissue a lost refund or allotment check or as a result of a late course adjustment.

Fines are assessed by numerous areas on campus which include the Office of Student Accountability and Resorative Practices (OSARP), Libraries & Educational Technology, Parking Services, Athletics, and the Office of Residence Life. Fines from Parking Services are held for 30 days and if unpaid, are transferred to UBO on the 31st day and are posted to the student account. All fines create an immediate hold on the student account and must be paid in full to have the hold released. Fines can be paid by mailing a check; making a payment by check, FLEX or cash at the cashier counter in the Student Success Center during business hours; or at our payment page with a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover) or electronic check payment.

Deposits are required for university admission and off-campus programs, i.e. all study abroad programs and Semester in Washington, and are credited toward the cost of the program. Deposit amounts and due dates will vary depending on the program.

Please contact the office responsible for the fee, fine or deposit for additional information.
