- Banking: All students are encouraged to have a bank account if they will be refunded excess financial aid or will have work-study earnings. Check cashing service is no longer provided in the Business Office.
- Work-study Earnings: Direct deposit is available for work-study earnings. To have your work-study earnings deposited direct to your banking account, you may complete the Payment Authorization Form available on the Financial Aid Work-study forms page.
The University Cashier cannot cash work-study paychecks but if a student is using their work-study earnings to pay on their account, they may endorse their pay check for the cashier to apply the work-study check as a payment on their student account balance.
- Online Payments: In order to continue offering students and parents the convenience and flexibility of paying student bills electronically, JBU has contracted with Official Payments Corporation (OPC) to process card payments. In our ongoing effort to manage the cost of providing a quality education, JBU can no longer cover the costs of cards payments on student accounts.
Effective July 1, 2013 card payments for tuition and fees will incur a service fee billed by OPC. The 2.5% service fee applies only to card payments. JBU offers a no-cost electronic check option as an online alternative. Traditional paper checks or money orders may be mailed to the University Cashier. Cash is also accepted as an in-person transaction.
