Tuition Refund Policy

The schedule of payments for tuition and fees at JTS is listed on the website. Refunds will be calculated from the last day of attendance. However, students may be responsible for housing charges even if they have withdrawn academically from JTS. Tuition refund percentages will be calculated according to the following schedule:

Withdrawal from JTS prior to the first day: 100%

Withdrawal from JTS during:

  • 1st week of classes: 100%
  • 2nd week of classes: 80%
  • 3rd week of classes: 65%
  • 4th week of classes: 50%
  • 5th week of classes: 30%
  • After the 5th week: 0

Items not subject to refund include registration fees, student organization fees, textbooks or supplies purchased on the student’s account, medical insurance, orientation fees, late registration penalties, and residence hall fees other than housing charges. Students will not receive any payments or refunds until all Title IV funds and other scholarships, as required, are reimbursed, and any outstanding balances with JTS are paid. In the event of a withdrawal from housing while still enrolled in JTS, a student will forfeit 80% of the housing charges during the first two weeks of classes. Thereafter, the entire amount for the semester will be forfeited. If a student is terminated by JTS for academic reasons or from housing during the academic year, the tuition and/or housing fees are subject to forfeit, irrespective of the date of withdrawal.
