PACT

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 studentaccounts@jsu.edu, 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 $266.49 per credit hour (effective Fall 2017). 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. 

  1. Go to www.jsu.edu/bursar
  2. Choose the ‘Contact Us’ Link
  3. Complete the required information and choose PACT as your subject
  4. Remember to include your full name, your JSU Student ID #, the semester and number of credit hours you are enrolled

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.

What else should I know?

  • Please monitor your JSU Email on a regular basis. If you receive notice that you have an outstanding tuition balance, you should view your My.JSU, View Account/Make Payment for balance and accuracy.  If you do not see PACT listed as payment, please ensure that you have emailed your enrolled hours to our office as instructed, or contact studentaccounts@jsu.edu with any questions. 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.
  • The need may arise for you to sign a release in the Office of Student Accounts, and/or Student Financial Services, allowing us to discuss your detailed billing information with a parent or outside sponsor.
  • Refunds resulting from excess financial assistance (loans, grants and/or scholarships) are processed in accordance with the university refund policy. Refund schedule is announced on the Office of Student Accounts webpage at www.jsu.edu/bursar.
  • If you skip a term at JSU, you will be removed from our PACT listing and you will need to contact us again upon your return. You will not be required to provide an eligibility letter, however, we will need an email notification that includes your full name, JSU student ID #, the semester and number of credit hours you have enrolled, in order for us to credit the pre-approved PACT tuition rate to your student account.
