Payment of Fees
Payment of fees is due prior to the start of each semester. Juniata recommends electronic wire transfer as the preferred method of payment. Please contact Accounting Services at firstname.lastname@example.org for information. Other methods of payment include: international money order in US dollars; bank draft (check) from a US bank in US dollars; traveler's checks in US dollars. Only Mastercard credit card is accepted (VISA is not accepted), and a 2.75% fee will be assessed on all credit card charges.
You should not carry a large amount of cash to Juniata.
All Juniata students are required to pay a Contingency Deposit of $250. This will be returned to you at the end of your stay at Juniata if you do not owe Juniata any payment.
All Juniata students are required to have Accident and Sickness Insurance
You will be billed for the Juniata student health insurance if you cannot show proof that you have insurance coverage that meets the requirements. The costs for the Juniata health and accident insurance are:
F-1 visa: $183.00/academic year, $103.00 fall semester, $131.00/spring semester and summer, and $58.00/ summer only.
J-1 visa: All J-1 visa holders are required by the US Department of State's Exchange Visitor Program regulations to carry medical insurance at the minimum benefit levels. $50.00/month.
Students who live in the residence halls must choose a meal plan. Each residence hall has a kitchen that is available for students to use, but the kitchens are not equipped for daily meal preparation. Some exchange students are limited to specific meal plan options due to exchange financial arrangements.
Textbooks for your classes will be expensive. You should budget about $300 for the costs of books each term.
(Intensive English students will not need to buy books.)
Please note the times when the campus is closed and you must leave your residence hall room. You should budget for travel during these times.
