A student deposit is similar to a security deposit against damages and/or fines. All incoming freshmen, re-admitted students, and Santa Fe transfer students are charged a $200 student deposit. This deposit will remain intact for as long as the student is enrolled at St. John’s. It will be returned, less any outstanding balances/fines/fees, when a student leaves the college.
The Tuition Refund Plan enhances and extends the college’s current refund schedule. The insurance plan, offered through A.W.G. Dewar, covers tuition and activity fees. Undergraduate and graduate students must be enrolled full time (17 and 6 credit hours respectively) to be eligible for tuition insurance. It ensures up to a 60% refund for physician documented withdrawals at any time during the semester. To facilitate enrollment in the program, students will be billed automatically for the cost of the program. No additional application is required. Fall and Spring semester students will be provided an opportunity to opt out of the insurance program. Summer GI students are requested to provide written authorization to opt into (purchase) the insurance program.
The health center fee allows students to access services at the Student Health & Wellness Center and helps offset the cost of providing health services to students. Students are required to provide evidence of health insurance when receiving services and all medical costs are billed through insurance. Counseling and psychiatric services are provided at no cost to students. Learn more about the services offered at the Student Health & Wellness Center.
All undergraduate students are billed a non-refundable charge of $180 in the fall semester for the manuals printed by the college for use in classes.
