How can I make a payment for tuition & fees?
We encourage you to make full payments online via MyJJC with a checking account no charge or credit/debit with a 1.95% convenience fee. You can mail a check to us, however, please leave ample time if using USPS. If you plan to pay with cash, please be sure to check office hours prior to coming to campus. If you need to spread your payments out over a period of time, JJC offers an automatic online payment plan option through Nelnet Business Solutions, JJC's tuition management program available via MyJJC.
What is the automatic payment plan? How do I use it?
Nelnet is a third party the college has partnered with to assist in spreading out your JJC payments for the semester you enroll in. There is a non-refundable $25.00 fee for this service. Please visit the automatic-payment plan page to learn more.
How can I find out my tuition balance?
- Log into MyJJC - must sign in with your JJC account
- Go to Students Menu
- Under "Financial Information" choose "Pay Bill & View Financial Aid"
- Choose View Account and Pay Your Bill
I dropped a class, when can I expect my refund?
Refunds are generated approximately two weeks AFTER classes have begun for the term and on a weekly basis for direct deposit/bi-weekly for printed checks. If payment was received by cash, check or via NBS automatic payment plan, a refund can be deposited directly into your savings or checking account. Enroll online via MyJJC for direct deposit! Otherwise, a check will be mailed to the current address in the system. Please be sure your address information is current within our system (contact firstname.lastname@example.org for address corrections). If the student's account was paid by credit/debit card, a credit will be issued back to the same credit/debit card.
However, if the student has a financial obligation still owed to the school (ex: tuition; book voucher; fines; ) their debts will be deducted from their refund. Refunds will not be generated if a student has a restriction placed on their account until the restriction is resolved with the appropriate department.
Student Accounts & Payments does not hold any type of student refund check for pick up.
Can I get a payment plan during the summer?
Yes, payment plans are offered for all semesters. You must have a $100.00 minimum balance and you must enroll each semester.

A restriction (also known as a 'notification' on the portal or may be referred to as a 'hold') may be placed on a student's record for various reasons. A student with a past-due balance will have a restriction which will result in college registration and services being withheld in accordance to college regulations. Delinquent debts may be reported to a credit bureau, collection agencies and/or litigated. The student will be responsible to pay any and all costs associated with collecting unpaid charges, including attorney fees and court costs.
How do I find what it would cost to take classes?
Current tuition and fee rates are available online and within the printed registration guide.
