The Alabama Prepaid Affordable College Tuition (PACT) Program
What does JSU need from me to get started?
In order to participate in the PACT to pay toward your tuition, we must have a copy of your eligibility letter and/or other authorization on file from your sponsor. You may send it via regular mail to Jacksonville State University 700 Pelham Rd Nth, Room 245 Bibb Graves Hall, Jacksonville, AL 36265; via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, via fax to (256) 782-8067 or in person to Room 245 Bibb Graves Hall.
We will bill PACT after the final drop/add period for the semester in order to include your completed schedule.
How much does PACT cover?
Alabama PACT: Actions taken by the Alabama Courts and Legislation rulings have resulted in changes to the Alabama Pre-paid College Tuition Plan Program (PACT). Effective Fall 2013, students are responsible for tuition charges for traditional courses (taken on campus) in excess of the amount allowed by PACT, currently $246.75 per credit hour (effective Fall 2016). If you enroll in anything other than traditional classes, you will be responsible for the online course tuition difference per credit hour.
Detailed information concerning the new policy can be found on the AL PACT website at http://www.treasury.alabama.gov/pact/.
What are my student responsibilities?
Each semester (Fall, Spring and Summer), it is your responsibility to notify our office of the number of credit hours you are registered for and your student account will receive a conditional credit for the pre-approved PACT tuition rate.
Any changes in your enrollment must also be provided throughout the term. Failure to make timely notification and/or updates may result in your entire class schedule being cancelled for non-payment. Classes will not be reinstated if you fail to contact us in a timely manner.
Important: Students whose sponsor fails to pay the authorized charges will have a financial hold placed on the students account (preventing registration for future terms and release of official transcripts or diplomas) until the balance is paid in full.
