Statement Regarding Tuition & Fees

Solely for avoidance of doubt, the tuition and fees students pay the university will not be discounted, irrespective of any changes in the manner or mode of learning or changes to any activities, events, or programs (including revision, postponement, or cancellation of same) at any time during the academic year; the manner or mode of learning could include on-ground learning, remote learning, or a combination of the two; it could include fewer classes or restructured classes; and it could include changes mid-semester (as just a few examples of possible changes). Please understand that the university, like other schools, is subject to multiple factors outside of its control, including effects stemming from the pandemic and applicable local, state, and federal law and guidance related to the pandemic, which factors could significantly alter, limit, or curtail our operations.

Tuition Refund Policy

Tuition is applicable to all students, including those on approved off-campus programs. Student health insurance, program fees, and room & board are nonrefundable, if applicable. Review the tuition refund policy.

Student Health Insurance Plan

SHIP is an optional plan for students without health insurance coverage. Students who do not waive the program will be responsible for payment on their JWU student account. For opt-out waiver instructions or coverage information, refer to Health Services and learn more about SHIP.
