Tuition

Jones College Logo

We realize this may be your first college experience and you are new to understanding all of the financial jargon surrounding tuition and fees. Understanding the term “credit hours” may help you to be able to determine an estimate of your costs and better understand the expenses you will incur.

Tuition is billed based on credit hours. The last digit of the course number denotes credit hours. Example: ENG1113 (English Comp I) represents 3 credit hours. Credit hours equate to the total meeting time of a course for one week. 

Courses can earn a student one, two, three or four credit hours. A full-time schedule of five courses (three hours each) would equal to 15 credit hours.

How To figure an estimate of your tuition and fee expenses:
  • Determine your “major” (course of study).
  • Look up your major to find the recommended course of study in the Jones College Course Catalog. You can pick up a printed copy of the course catalog in the Library on campus or the Office of Student Affairs in the Administration Building. The online course catalog will provide you the same information.
  • From the list of courses required for your major, decide which courses you want to enroll in for one semester.
  • Check the fee sheet, updated each semester by the Jones College Business Office, as a guide for the tuition, book fees and other additional fees you might be charged.
The Business Office can provide you with a detailed copy of your expenses once you have submitted your application and met with an enrollment counselor to set your schedule of classes.
There are many types of federal and state financial aid and scholarships available to those who qualify to help reduce tuition and fees.

Beyond Tuition

Your tuition and fees will vary based on whether you enroll as a full-time or part-time student, and whether you qualify for in-state financial aid or scholarships.

In addition to tuition and required enrollment fees, you should also plan for certain additional costs depending on your choice of majors. Art majors will need art supplies, chemistry and physics require lab fees, some math, engineering and vocational/technical programs specify calculators needed for calculations.

The biggest chunk of college cost is usually tuition, a fee charged by educational institutions for instruction and other services.


Beyond tuition and required registration fees, additional student costs may include:

  • books
  • laptop or tablet
  • general school supplies (binders, notebooks, etc.)
  • art materials (drawing paper, paints, etc.) or equipment (camera, tripod, etc.)
  • specialized calculators
  • clinical wear and shoes (nursing studies)
  • on-campus dining
  • parking decal
  • change of schedule fee
  • late payment or returned check charges
  • ID replacement fee
  • dorm key/card replacement
