Summer Fees

Generally, summer is an optional term; and not all campuses offer summer courses. If you register summer courses, please contact us to discuss in detail your charges for summer tuition (including fees, room and board) and to discuss your eligibility to receive financial aid during summer.

  • In order to be eligible for any Federal financial aid, undergraduate students must register for a minimum of 6.0 credits.
  • Undergraduate students registered for a full-time schedule may be eligible for available merit scholarships (based on eligibility requirements) as well as the Johnson & Wales Grant.
  • Students interested in using a portion of their future year financial aid (if eligible) must complete the FAFSA for the next academic year; eligibility for summer financial aid is based on the student's continuing enrollment for the next academic year.
  • In compliance with federal guidelines, JWU students are able to apply aid for a maximum of three terms during an academic year; the summer term is an optional fourth term.

Undergraduate day programs
Students are assessed the traditional tuition rate in addition to a $100 General Fee. Students who are interested in summer study abroad programs should contact Study Abroad for more information.

  • For example, if a student's current tuition rate is $21,297, the summer term charge is $7,099 (21,297 divided by 3), plus the $100 General Fee.
  • Students who register a half-time schedule (fewer than 12.0 credit) will be charged a percentage of their tuition charge.

Continuing Education & Graduate programs Students are charged according to published tuition and fees. Doctoral program students who do not complete the dissertation in the prescribed time will be automatically scheduled for EDUC9011, Dissertation Advisement Continuation, which will result in a fee being assessed each semester, including summer, until the successful completion of program requirements or an approved leave of absence is granted.
