Refunds

If a student receives a credit on their account students can opt-in to receive this as a refund. The student should first set up their Title IV Authorization on their Student Profile to allow for the credit to be released. If you need to make a change to your Title IV Authorization please fill out the Student Title IV Authorization form found on our forms page

Refunds are sent to students in the form of a check or electronic refund. If you need to set up an electronic refund please follow these detailed instructions here

  • Please Note: eRefunds can only be set up by the student. Parents who are expecting a refund from a parent plus loan will only receive a credit as a check in the mail at this time. If you are unsure if you or your student will be receiving the credit from the parent plus loan please reach out to our Student Enrollment and Financial Services Counselors to confirm.

 

Deadlines/Penalties

Balances that are not paid in full or if you have not signed up for the Payment Plan by the first day of the term will be subjected to late fees and holds.

John Carroll has a Tiered Late Fee Assessment for balances in excess of $100:

  • $75 first month
  • $150 second month
  • $225 third month

These late fees will be assessed each month to any outstanding balance. Billing Statements can be viewed in the Billing Portal found here:

Registration holds will be placed on a student’s account with a balance after the first week of classes. These holds will prevent students from registration for the following semester, access to transcripts, final grades, as well as any registration changes. Questions regarding a balance should be directed to the Student Service Counselors by email: enrollment@jcu.edu, or phone: 216.397.4248.
