Tuition Explained
Your tuition rate is assessed using the following criteria:

Residency Status
For the purposes of determining tuition charges, a student is considered a resident of the State of New York if the student has a principal place of residence in the State of New York for a period of at least 12 consecutive months immediately preceding the first day of classes for the semester with respect to which the residency determination is made. Such a student must state an intention to live permanently and maintain a principal place of residence in New York State. Residence in a dormitory, hotel, or other temporary housing facility does not in itself.

Student Status

  • Full-Time Student or Part-Time
  • Degree/Program of Study

     

Student Fees Explained
The rate in which student fees are charged is based on the following criteria:

  • Full-Time/Part-Time Status
    • Students who register for fewer than 12 credits, or the equivalent, and subsequently register for additional credits, which bring the total to more than 12 credits, must pay the additional fee required. Students who drop or withdraw from courses and reduce their credit load below the 12-credit minimum are not entitled to a refund. 
  • Semester Session
    • Winter and summer tuition rates are charged on a per credit basis and will also incur the per semester mandatory fees (student activity fee, consolidated fee and the technology fee). John Jay students taking winter session classes are not charged the mandatory fees.
