In general, individuals who are citizens of countries outside of the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland are required to pay application and tuition fees.

There are some exceptions to this general rule. More information>> regarding who is not required to pay fees.

Students with citizenship in a country outside the EU, EEA and Switzerland are required to pay a SEK 900 (approximately EUR 80) application fee. You pay one application fee per admission period. The application fee is non-refundable.


Application period

See the information in the "How To Apply"-sections on the admissions page Opens in new window..


Payment of application fee

The application fee must be paid when the application is submitted in one of three ways:

  • by Visa or MasterCard,
  • proof of payment of the application fee for the same admission period at University Admissions (see instructions in our FAQ Opens in new window.), or
  • by bank transfer. The application must have been submitted with "pre-payment of application fee" checked as you will need your application number when you make a bank transfer.


At Jönköping University, the tuition fee for the entire study programme is divided into instalments like a payment plan. There are the same number of instalments as there are semesters in the study programme. Each instalment must be paid (and reached our bank) before the start of a new semester, even if you need to re-take classes and exams.
The first installment of tuition fee should be paid in full before the application for a residency permit can be processed.

In Sweden, all offers of admission are considered preliminary until the student has paid the first installment of the programme tuition fee. The Swedish Migration Agency will not start to process an application for residence permit for study until the first installment has been received by the university.

 

A 3-year bachelor programme fee is divided into 6 instalments of the tuition fee and a 2-year master programme fee is divided into 4 instalments.

 

If you have paid all instalments but not yet completed the study programme, you can complete the study programme without further payments as long as you meet the requirements set by the Swedish Migration Agency.

The tuition fees vary depending on the school and programme. The following fees apply for the academic year 2024/2025.

Note that the tuition fees per academic year are paid in two instalments.

If you have been granted, and accepted, a JU scholarship, the amount awarded will be deducted from the tuition fee invoice accordingly. No money will be dispersed to you directly.

When granted a JU scholarship, information regarding the scholarship is stated on the invoice of the tuition fee. The scholarship value is deducted from the tuition fees.

 

If you have paid the first instalment of the tuition fee in full before being granted a JU scholarship, the amount will be deducted from the second instalment (double deduction).

Read more about the JU Scholarship, which is only available for applicants as they are applying for the study programme.

The due date for the first instalment of the tuition fee is stated on the invoice sent after admission through the direct application at ju.se or through University Admissions. The invoice must have been paid before the Swedish Migration Agency will start to process an application for study permit Opens in new window..


The due dates for the rest of the instalments of the tuition fees for bachelor and master programmes:

Second: 15 December

Third: 15 June

Fourth: 15 December

Fifth (bachelor): 15 June

Sixth (bachelor): 15 December

 

See the dates in Payman:

  1. Go to the tab "Tuition fee periods"
  2. Expand the information for Pending periods
  3. View the due date and reference number.

Due date = the date when the payment should have arrived in the JU bank account.

Due to international regulations, it is currently not allowed for Swedish universities to conduct monetary transactions with Iran, Russia, and Belarus. You should be aware of this already when you make a payment. Be careful about which account you choose to make the payment from. A refund should be made to the same account as the payment was originally made from.

Therefore, we recommend that you choose a payment method that works also if a refund must be made.

This section describes refund of tuition fee due to cancellation of admission for different reasons. Please note that it is not possible to receive a tuition fee without first notifying Jönköping University of cancellation or withdrawal from study. A refund application will be treated as a cancellation of study (before the start of the studies).


Before starting your studies:

  • If you have submitted your cancellation of admission to the Admissions Office before 31 May (autumn start) or before 30 November (spring start), you are eligible for a full refund with a deduction of an administrative fee of 7,500 SEK and bank/transfer fees.
  • If you have submitted your cancellation of admission to the Admissions Office after 31 May (autumn start) or after 30 November (spring start) but no later than the date of the official start of the programme (mandatory roll call), you are eligible for a refund of 2/3 of the tuition fee paid with a deduction of an administrative fee of 7,500 SEK and bank/transfer fees.


After the start of the studies:

  • Only after you have withdrawn from the programme, can we review an application for refund.
  • Withdrawal from studies does not normally entitle you to a refund.
  • Refund of paid tuition fee after the start of a semester is only possible if you had to drop out for special reasons. Jönköping University decides what constitute special reasons. If there is a special reason, refund is not granted retroactively, which means that the tuition fee corresponding to the weeks you have been studying (participating) is not refundable.
  • If you do not complete sufficient credits to move on to the next semester or year, refund cannot be granted.


Special reasons:

  • Some reasons for cancelling after 31 May could still mean a full refund (except the administrative fee and bank/transfer fees).
  • Jönköping University decides what is an accepted special reason on a case-by-case basis.
  • Rejection on application for residence permit for study constitutes a special reason and will be reviewed as such (there is always an administrative fee of 7,500 SEK). However, if a student has been participating online through hybrid studies and then receives a rejection, a deduction is made from the refund corresponding to the weeks from the start of the semester until withdrawal from the programme.
  • Not having received a decision from the Migration Agency in time is generally not considered a special reason (a rejection letter is required to show special reason).


Apply for refund through this online form>> External link, opens in new window..

Note that documents for special reason should be issued in Swedish or English or officially translated into English.


Please note that Jönköping University sends international bank transactions primarily in EURO and that the university does not take any responsibility for changes in the currency exchange rates or any bank and transfer fees after the transfer has been initiated from our bank.currency exchange rate changes will be deducted from the refunded amount.

 

If you are not satisfied with a decision on refund of tuition fees for special reasons, it is possible to submit an appeal. See the information here>>

Pathway programmes are held at Campus Gränna and include a mandatory boarding fee for all students at the Pathway programmes, including students who are not required to pay tuition fees.


The refund policy for the tuition fees for Pathway programmes:

  • The same as for bachelor and master programmes. See the information in the section above (Refund policy for tuition fees).

 

  • If you participate in the offered online studies from 15 January 2024 and you cancel/drop-out after that date due to special reasons, refund is not granted retroactively, which means that the tuition fee corresponding to the weeks you have been participating is not refundable.
    Example: If you have participated in your studies online and then drop out due to rejection from the Migration Agency four weeks after the official start of the semester, tuition fee corresponding to those weeks are not refunded.


The section below describes refund of boarding fee due to cancellation of admission for different reasons. It is not possible to apply for a refund and keep the admission at the same time. A refund application is treated as a cancellation.

 

The refund policy for the boarding fee for the Pathway programme fee can be found in the following Dean’s decision:

Rejection on Residence permit application:

This constitutes a special reason and will be reviewed as such. If you receive (and submit) the rejection before the official start of the studies, full refund of the boarding fee could be granted. If you receive a rejection after the official start of the studies and you have registered and been able to start the studies online, Jönköping University Enterprise will make an individual decision on potential partial refund of the boarding fee.

If you change your fee status from fee-paying to non-fee paying after being admitted and before the due date on your invoice, you must contact the admissions at Jönköping University to be re-assessed.

If you receive a residence permit for reasons other than study after you have paid the first instalment of the programme tuition fee, you can apply for a re-assessment concerning the next semester, never retroactively.

You will not be eligible for refund of any fees already paid.

 

If you apply for a work permit when the current study permit is about to expire, you must have received the decision from the Migration Agency before the start of the new semester, the work permit must be valid from before the start of the new semester, AND you must have submitted a copy of the decision to admissions.office@ju.se (see Examples 2 and 3).

 

If you receive a work permit or a permit as a family member of a person with work permit after a new semester has started, you must submit the decision to admissions.office@ju.se for an assessment. Any change in the fee-paying status at the university will start the following semester as the change will not be retroactively.
You will not be eligible for refund of any fees already paid.

At Jönköping University, the tuition fee for the entire study programme is divided into instalments like a payment plan. There are the same number of instalments as there are semesters in the study programme. Each instalment must have reached our bank before the start of a new semester, even if you need to re-take classes and exams.


Not paying the tuition fee instalments in time has consequences:

  • If you do not pay the tuition fee instalments according to the payment plan, you will be suspended from all studies at Jönköping University as of the first day of the new semester.
    The only way to lift the suspension is to pay the outstanding tuition fee instalments. Each new semester that starts after the suspension will increase the number of outstanding tuition fee instalments that must be paid to lift the suspension.
  • If the instalment is paid in full too late into the new semester, you might not be able to register for all classes, which could have a negative effect on your continuing studies and your residence permit for study could be revoked.
