Payment Options

Annual Payments

Students may make one payment in full for the entire academic year. Students are responsible for paying all charges in full or making appropriate arrangements by the semester published due date.

Semester Payments

Students may make two payments per academic year.

Students attending in the summer can establish a payment plan with their financial planner.

Students should refer to their invoice for due dates. 

Monthly Payments

Students may choose to pay the annual amount due in convenient monthly payments. This option is available through jwuLink. There is an enrollment fee to participate. Most plans are essentially interest free, but some accounts may incur late fees, reinstatement fees or other fees. Students interested in this option must contract with Nelnet Campus Commerce and pay the first installment, in addition to the enrollment fee, by the fall published due dates listed above.

All Johnson & Wales University students must fulfill their financial obligations to the university by the published due date noted above. (All off-semester entrants must meet the financial obligation by the published date for that semester.)

To meet their financial obligation, students must do one of the following by the published due date:

  • Make a full semester payment.
  • Contract with Nelnet Campus Commerce and pay the first monthly installment, as well as the enrollment fee.
  • Have an approved loan which covers the annual balance.
  • Have an approved payment plan with Student Financial Services using a combination of the above options.
