The Accounting Office is responsible for the billing and collection of tuition and fees, payment plans, and other University related charges. We are here to provide you with the best possible service and information related to the student’s account.
Tuition Cost Calculator
For undergraduate students, the University offers a tuition calculator to assist in determining the costs associated with degree completion. Click here to access the calculator. Individuals interested in the costs for the graduate certificates and degrees — i.e. master’s and doctoral programs — should contact the Office of Admissions.
Tuition is payable by check, MasterCard, and Visa and is due in full at the time of registration. Checks should be made payable to John F. Kennedy University. A $35 fee is assessed for checks returned because of insufficient funds.
Tuition is refundable on a percentage basis according to the dates published by the registrar’s office. Generally, fees—including course materials fees—are non-refundable. Students expecting to drop courses or to seek a refund of tuition or fees should consult with the appropriate offices beforehand.
The tuition and fees listed are charged as indicated and are subject to change without prior notice. The Board of Trustees reviews rates of tuition and fees annually. As a matter of policy, absent countervailing factors, tuition and fees will be increased periodically at a rate no less than the rate of inflation.
JFK University welcomes students of all income levels. A brochure describing the University’s major financial aid programs and application procedures is available from the Financial Aid Office.

Projected Graduation/Completion Rates for John F. Kennedy University
In 1991, the US Congress amended the Higher Education Act of 1965. This Act requires colleges and universities disbursing financial aid to provide students and potential students with information about the graduation/completion rates of their undergraduate students enrolled in degree or certificate programs. The criteria for calculating graduation rates established by this Act does not match the student profile at John F. Kennedy University. JFK University does not offer a four-year baccalaureate degree. The typical undergraduate student at the University is a re-entry student with a desire to complete a previously started degree here, at another institution of higher education, and/or one who wishes to attend school on a part-time basis.
