JTerm Financial Aid Application

The J-Term 2024 semester is linked to the preceding Fall 2023 semester. Consequently, once you complete the in-house J-Term financial aid application, your Fall 2023 Cost of Attendance will be adjusted to reflect the additional actual costs (direct and indirect) that you will incur during the J-Term aid period.

All students will be responsible for taking any refund check that will be issued to them during the Fall semester (based on their enrollment in J-Term) to the Office of Student Accounts to pay for their J-Term actual tuition and fees on their own.

Students Studying Abroad will receive their refund for their J-term trip during the Fall semester as well and will be responsible for paying any program fees through the International Education Office unless prior arrangements have been made with the Office of Student Accounts.
