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.

Eh, I'm still figuring out how to pay for this college without being too much in debt, but I believe God will find a way if He wants me here :)

Ranked #1 in Best Value in the entire southern region of the United States by the US News and World Report. Considering the price of tuition that really says something.
Ryan
It's an expensive school, but the financial aid department helps a lot, and there are a ton of workstudy positions available. For a private school, too, it's not too expensive.
Kiera from Rogers, AR
Yes, it is a private college, so it's going to be more expensive than staying in state. That being said, it is very reasonable for a college of it's quality. (In fact, U.S. News just rated it the #1 value Southern college!). Also, they are pretty generous with financial aid, but you still need to try to apply for as many scholarships as possible!!
Mountain Lover
Although JBU is a little pricey, it was ranked by US World Report as the #1 Christian college in the south! I'm so glad I made the decision to come here. They strive to take care of you, no matter your financial background, which is a major factor in school choice.
