Payment Plan

Judson University offers an interest-free, in-house Payment Plan. This plan will allow you to spread the semester’s principal charges over a number of months, concluding with the end of that semester. As long as you are current with your payments, no monthly carrying charges are assessed and your account is considered paid in full for purposes of access to online records, participation in classes, and extra curricular activities and pre-registration. The Judson University Payment Plan requires a non-refundable administration fee which is included in your monthly payments. Payment plans are set up through the student's MyJudson account by selecting Student Accounts, then Billing Checklist and Payment Plan Set Up.  Begin with the Student Billing Questionnaire and continue as indicated.

Tuition Refund Insurance

Each year thousands of college students are unable to complete classes for the semester due to unforeseen medical issues such as illness, accidents, concussions, or mental health related issues. Unfortunately, in many cases these families are unable to recoup all of their tuition dollars. At Judson, depending on the timing of the withdrawal, there may be circumstances where you may not be eligible to receive a refund of all of your tuition and fees. We understand that these types of situations can be a financial hardship for many families. Therefore, we are pleased to make available the Tuition Refund Insurance plan.

This optional insurance program is available to help refund your tuition, fees, and room/board charges, up to the annual policy limits, if you are unable to complete the semester due to a covered medical reason. This insurance program complements and enhances our school's refund policy and we believe families will benefit from this added protection. Visit GradGuard for additional information.

Employer Tuition Reimbursement Plan (ETRP)

Judson University cooperates with many businesses and other organizations which offer tuition reimbursement plans to their employees. For any Judson student participating in such a plan, the university will defer that portion of tuition which is covered by the plan. Judson's acceptance of a tuition reimbursement plan on behalf of any student is subject to the following conditions:

  1. The amount of tuition designated as part of the payment plan may not exceed the anticipated net proceeds from the employer under the plan, where anticipated net proceeds represent the estimated plan reimbursement.
  2. The Judson University ETRP Plan requires a non-refundable administration fee payable upon acceptance of the plan.   
  3. The university must receive the tuition payment either directly from the employer or from the student within 30 days following the end of the course/term to which it applies. If full payment is not received within these 30 days, the late payment amount will become subject to all monthly carrying charges and the late payment fee. Receipt of the payment within this 30-day period is defined as "timely receipt."
  4. The student must set up an ETRP plan before the start of the term through the student's MyJudson account by selecting Student Accounts, then Billing Checklist and Payment Plan Set Up.  Begin with the Student Billing Questionnaire and continue as indicated to select the Employer Tuition Reimbursement Plan.
