General Fee


Charges are based on a general fee covering most of the annual costs to a student:



Resident Students

Non-resident Students

Fall Semester



Spring Semester







The general fee is applied to regular instructional costs: use of Juniata’s library and instructional facilities; academic services; personal student services; and maintenance and other operational costs. The general fee for full-time students also covers many extracurricular expenses including: admission to all home athletic events and numerous campus social activities; most of the admission charges to designated, College-sponsored cultural programs; use of all recreational/athletic facilities; and subscriptions to the student newspaper (The Juniatian). A student paying the general fee may take a normal load of 12 to 18 hours per semester. When permission is given to register for work in excess of the normal program, either in a given semester or for the academic year, the overload fee is $500.00 for the 19th credit hour and $1280.00 for anything over up to 21credits.

The yearly general fee for resident students also covers board charges and room rental for regularly announced periods when the dining hall and residence halls are open (see the College calendar). A limited number of students, with approval from the Dean of Students, may live off campus each year, but others are expected to reside on campus unless they live with parents and guardians and commute from home in the immediate area. Resident students will have several meal plan options from which they may choose. All freshmen are required to take the standard 21 meal plan during the first semester.  Questions about meal plan options should be addressed to Student Services.
