COVID information

 COVID policies supersede anything listed.

If students are required to return home, will there be reimbursement for room and board? If Juniata is required to send students home during the spring semester, we will issue Room and Board refunds based on the following schedule, which will be updated for all semesters moving forward. While a significant number of schools are altering contracts to not refund room and board this year if required to go to remote teaching, we are committed to issuing refunds based on this schedule:

Move home on or before Tuesday, February 16, 2021 – 80% refund
Through Friday, March 19, 2021 – 50% refund
Through Monday, April 5, 2021 – 25% refund
On or after Tuesday, April 6, 2021 – 0% refund
Please be advised that changes to cost of attendance can change a student’s need‐based financial aid.

The college has spent the past few months preparing to provide, and will provide, the same high‐quality core educational experience regardless of method of delivery. As such, our cost structure is already tiered to reflect costs associated with residential or remote learning.

 If students take a leave of absence or withdraw from the college, the last day for a refund of tuition, room & board is March 31, 2021.  Students will be prorated based on the number of days in attendance.

 If students choose to do remote learning midway through the semester, the last day for a refund of room & board is March 31, 2021.  Students will be prorated based on the number of days on campus.
