  Payment Plan Enrollment Fee $5/unit  
  Graduation Application Fee $35  

Each graduating student is required to pay this fee, without regard to commencement participation. The fee will appear on the student’s account at the time the application for graduation has been submitted. In addition, students who participate in commencement will be required to purchase regalia through the bookstore.

  Auto Registration No Charge  

Any vehicle that will be parked on campus in Siloam Springs must have a JBU parking sticker. This sticker is valid for one academic year, fall semester through summer term III. Students may register online and the registration fee is waived for graduate students. Those graduate students attending classes on JBU’s Siloam Springs’ campus or visiting there regularly will need parking decals.

If you do not go to the Siloam Springs’ campus regularly, but need to visit for any reason between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm on a weekday, you will need to request a temporary parking permit from the administrative assistant for your program area. They will email you a temporary permit that you will print and display on your dash to avoid citation.

For more information, refer to Campus Safety on the web, email campussafety@jbu.edu, or call (479) 524-7403.


The university does not assume any responsibility for lost or stolen property, nor does it carry fire, theft, or damage insurance on the personal property of students.

Student Accounts

Students have two payment options. The first option is to pay in full (net of pending financial aid) five days prior to the start of the term. The second option is to self-enroll in a payment plan before the term begins. Plan payments are due on the 5th of each month to pay in full by the last month in your term. A $5 enrollment fee applies. If a student sets up automatic payments, the enrollment fee is waived. Payment plan balances will accrue interest at 5% annual percentage rate. The university reserves the right to change the fee structure as needed to fund the payment plan program. Certain non-traditional terms are not eligible for payment plans.

Paper check, E-check, VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express are accepted.

Students who fail to comply with their current payment schedule are subject to termination of enrollment. Official transcripts of academic credits are not released while any balance is owed JBU. The university engages professional collection agencies when collecting delinquent accounts.
