Saint Joseph's University offers a Deferred Payment Plan (DPP) alternative to making large, lump sum payments each term. This enables you to budget for the cost of tuition and fees over four months for the Fall, Spring or Summer Term and two months for Summer Session I or Summer Session II only. Participation does not affect your eligibility to receive financial aid. To enroll in this program, you can download the application or:

  • Go to MySJU and log in to secure area

If you must withdraw from a course, the Student Service Center must be notified in writing either by completing the appropriate withdrawal form or by letter. A refund of tuition will be based on the date on the withdrawal form or the postmark on the letter. Refunds for students with Financial Aid may differ from the established refund policy of the University. Consult the Financial Aid Office for further information. In extraordinary circumstances, such as serious illness or injury, when a student is forced to withdraw from classes after the refund period has ended, a written appeal may be made to the Student Account committee at the Student Service Center requesting special consideration. Appropriate documentation is required with such an appeal.
