Important! The JSU Payment Plan is an adjustable plan based on any new charges or credits applied to the account so that the final installment will include any unpaid semester charges. Thus, the original plan displayed may not be the plan a day later if a class is added or dropped or other charges or credits are applied to the student account.
NOTE: JSU will recalculate all payment plans and send an email notification for payment plan accounts that change by dropping/adding a class. Do keep in mind it is your responsibility to monitor your payment plan. New charges applied are divided and equalized into the remaining Installments.
You can pay all or part of your installment at any time provided the full amount is paid by the installment due date. Otherwise, your saved payment method will be processed for any remaining balance on the installment due date.
Each payment plan will have scheduled installment due dates that are set by JSU. You will be required to save a payment method when you enroll, and JSU will automatically draft the account you have saved.
NOTE: if you have made your installment payment prior to the due date, JSU will not draft your account for that installment.
If JSU cannot automatically draft the account using the payment method provided upon enrollment, a late fee of $30.00 will be applied to your account.
When the aid is applied to your account it will be applied to the next scheduled installment(s). If the amount received pays your account in full, no further installments will be processed unless you incur additional charges.
