Cost of Attendance

The following Cost of Attendance examples represent students who register in consecutive courses (at least one course every eight weeks) across the academic year (32 weeks or eight months).  A student taking fewer courses would have lower tuition, fees, and book/supply expenses.  Similarly, a student who has periods of non-registration during the academic year would have a lower living expense allowance, pro-rated to reflect living expenses incurred during periods of JIU registration. Below are examples of the cost of attendance for a graduate and an undergraduate student. For more personalized cost of attendance information visit our Net Price Calculator.
