A cohort term consists of multiple courses with the same registration date, taught in consecutive order.

  • Tuition will be refunded at 100% for courses that are dropped prior to the beginning date of the dropped course.

The following is the schedule of refund of charges for the student who withdraws completely from the University:

Prior to the first weekly meeting of the term - 100%

Employer Tuition Reimbursement - ETRP Plan

Judson University cooperates with many businesses and other organizations which offer tuition reimbursement benefits to their employees. For the Judson student who wishes to defer making payment due until their employer will make payment, the University offers a deferment plan called ETRP.

The Judson University requirements for the ETRP Plan are the following:

  • Employer third-party billing is only available as an option if an employer pays a minimum of at least 50% of the annual tuition directly to Judson University. For a one-time fee, tuition and fees are deferred a maximum of 30 days after the end of each course regardless of when the student receives reimbursement from their company. A student's credit card will be charged on the 31st day if payment has not been recieved in full.
  • A completed Student Authorization to Charge form
  • All documentation is due two (2) weeks prior to the start of each course

Students who wish to receive invoices for tuition reimbursement purposes must contact the AU Accounting Manager.
