Automatic Payment Plan more
St. Johns River State College offers a Tuition Installment Plan (TIP) for all students requiring assistance with managing their educational expenses. The TIP program will allow students to pay for tuition and fee expenses over a period of time rather than one lump sum payment before the start of the semester. The College has contracted with Nelnet Business Solutions to administer this program. This company will be responsible for the enrollment, as well as receiving the monthly payments. Enrollment to the payment plan can be completed via the SJR State Web site ( by logging on to the MySJRstate account. After the student registers under the Student and Registration menu, click on Optional Payment Plan, choose the term, and click on e-Cashier logo and follow the steps. Students needing additional information should contact the SJR State Business Office at (386) 312-4117.
Fee Adjustments Due to Schedule Change more
Student fees are recalculated at the end of registration period for schedule changes, as noted in the academic calendar, to determine if additional fees are due. If additional payment is required, the student will be notified.
Refund Policy - Withdrawal from College and Reduction of Class Load more
A refund of registration fees will be made to any student enrolled in college credit courses who officially withdraws on or before the last day of the late registration period of any academic term. This policy applies also to the reduction of class load.
  • Exceptions
    A full refund (100%) will be given to any student whose courses are canceled by the College or to any student who, because of serious circumstances beyond the student's control occurring prior to the mid-point of the term, is prevented from completing the term. These circumstances are limited to the following:
    • death of the student or the death of an immediate family member upon whom the student is dependent for continuation of enrollment;
    • prolonged physical disability of the student;
    • involuntary recall or induction into the armed services; or
    • other circumstances that may be approved by the President or designee with or without full 100% refund.

    In such cases, timely notification, along with appropriate documentation, should be made to the Vice President for Student Affairs.
    Tuition for continuing workforce and community instructional service courses is NOT refundable.

    A statutory refund is made to federal financial aid sources if the student received financial aid funds and the student withdraws or was withdrawn prior to completing at least 60% of the term. This also applies to students who stopped attendance prior to completing at least 60% of the term and received grades of F, I, and/or W only.

    SJR State's policy is to recalculate the amount of aid earned based on the last documented date the student participated in class or the mid-point of the semester, whichever is later. The College will bill the student any amount refunded to federal sources. A hold will be placed on the student's records until repayment is made. Repayment can be made by cash, check, or credit card to the cashier, or send payment to the Business Office.

  • Refunds will be distributed to aid sources as prescribed by federal regulations.
Returned Check Policy more
If a student, or a student's parent or guardian, issues a check to meet an obligation to the College and the check is not honored by the bank on which it is drawn, the student will be given five class days in which to meet the obligation. Failure to do so may result in the student's suspension. If a student habitually issues bad checks, even though each check is made good, disciplinary action may be taken. A service charge will be levied on any returned check.
