Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

If saving money is what your all about, JU can help you out. This university allows all JU students to attend any event JU students host for free. From football games to concerts, JU students don't have to pay a penny to watch.
Meaghan from Jacksonville, FL
I was given plenty of financial aid and a very large scholarship. I only had two options for school since I had to stay close to home and JU gave me the best the could. JU is expensive, but it is a private college and there are so many more benefits to have 30 people in a class than 300. It allows the school to supply you with the newest and the best of technology, as well as on campus activities.
Robyn from Jacksonville, FL
I'm so glad I'm here, don't get me wrong, but I've been through a year here, and I'm already in debt. The school is expensive, and even though I make straight A's they aren't boosting up the money they are giving me for my academic scholarship. So, I wonder how bad it would be if I wasn't making straight A's. I don't get financial aid or the Pell Grant so I always feel like I'm going to have to be paying off a huge loan when I get out. But, I do like it here, I just have to remember that.
Stephanie from Jacksonville, FL
While tuition is high, I definitely feel that the cost is worth it- and they have plenty of campus scholarships to help with the cost, as well as a ton of on-campus jobs to help pay off the rest. You are paying for the great community and one-on-one help you get everywhere you turn.
Rachel from Jacksonville, FL
JU offers such a close knit family atmosphere. Faculty get to know you very well and those working around campus get to know your name and greet you when they see you. My freshmen year, I met a janitor, a cafe worker, and someone in student solutions who still to this day stop and talk to me whenever I am seen. They make sure that you are alright and you always have someone to talk to. We also offer a place where you can talk to someone about your problems and the best part is - they have a 0 gravity massage chair (BEST THING EVER) that you can use whenever the door is open.
Lauren from Columbia, SC
Jacksonville University is an extremely recognized University and is an awesome institution for those that are wishing to have a prosperous future. Jacksonville University has the connection to their students that other intuitions do not, because many colleges do not take the time to know their students on a personal level. Do to this connection, many students are hired immediately after college in their field of study; and often students are asked to work at the institution while working toward their masters.
Chunia from Indianapolis, IN
I am here for nursing and even with my full ride it gets pricey sometimes, but it is also recognized as the best nursing program in the entire state and you get a lot of experience.
Sabrina from Jacksonville , FL
this can all depend on how you did your high school year. They give out lots of scholarship money but the school is expensive anyway.
Karla from Jacksonville, FL
The school is pricey but if you want that small class atmosphere or not as busy atmosphere this is the place to go.
