Tuition and fees schedule for students (per semester hour):

  • In-district: $97.00
  • Out-of-district: $263.44
  • Out-of-state/International: $314.86

Students who are classified as out-of-district, but wish to change their tuition status to in-district must turn in proof of residency 30 days prior to the first day of the semester they plan to attend JALC. Acceptable forms of proof of residency include:

  • A driver’s license with an in-district address
  • A state identification card with an in-district address
  • A voter’s registration card with an in-district address
  • A notarized letter from a parent or legal guardian documenting that the student lives at an in-district address, provided the student is under the age of 24.

Students scheduling prior to late registration will be sent an initial billing statement detailing tuition, fees, and the payment amount due. Students scheduling thereafter will have payment due on the day they register. Financial aid will only defer tuition payment if all forms are filled out and the file complete in the Financial Aid Office. Initial semester billing statements will be mailed May for the summer semester, May for the fall semester and November for the spring semester to students who have pre-scheduled.

All billing statements are sent to the student’s permanent address on file with the Admissions Office. It is the student’s responsibility to provide the college with an accurate address and telephone number.

To avoid a student’s schedule of classes being dropped (purged), either payment in full or approved payment arrangements along with initial payment must be received by the Business Office by noon on the due date shown on the initial billing statement.
