*A Note RE: M.Div. Field Education and Intersession Credits:

Beginning in the Fall Semester 2011, there will be no charge for the required M.Div. Field Education units (9 units total over the program). These free units take the place of formerly free intersession units.Exception: Students who began the M.Div. program prior to fall 2011 will still receive 3 credits free in the intersession each year if enrolled for 9 or more units in both fall & spring semesters.

*Continuing Registration Fees:

Th.M. and S.T.L. students who are no longer registered for courses and have not completed the thesis requirement for their degree program, and S.T.D. students who have completed two years of full-time registration, enter continuing registration status. Whatever the conditions for continuing registration are (cf. supra), students in this status must register for 6 units of continuing registration and must pay the continuing registration fee in each semester to keep their degree candidacy active until their thesis requirement is completed. Six units of continuing registration are regarded as full-time registration status in the Th.M, S.T.L. and S.T.D. programs for governmental purposes such as immigration status and student loans.

For M.A. students in thesis, the continuing registration fee is roughly equivalent to one-half tuition for the M.A. program, payable to the school of affiliation.

Note: Continuing registration is not allowed for M.T.S. students.  However, M.T.S. students who are no longer registered for courses, and have not completed the M.T.S. synthesis paper requirement for their degree program, must continue to register and pay for at least 3 units of thesis to keep their degree candidacy active.

Note: Continuing registration is not allowed for M.T.S. students. However, M.T.S. students who are no longer registered for courses, and have not completed the M.T.S. synthesis paper requirement for their degree program, must continue to register and pay for at least 3 units of thesis to keep their degree candidacy active.

Tuition Refund/Forfeiture Policy

Students formally withdrawing from the school or from individual courses will forfeit tuition for courses dropped at the following rate:

Within the first two weeks
*
of any semester
   full tuition
      refund
Within the third to fifth weeks
*
of any semester

Students who receive Federal Title IV Financial Aid (i.e. federal student loans), and withdraw from school prior to the 60% point in a term will be subject to the Federal Return to Title IV policy. In such cases, the GTU Financial Aid Office determines what portion of student loans for the semester has been earned and what portion must be returned to the lender. Students receiving loans will receive a notice of this policy at the time they pick up their checks from the JST Business Office. A copy of the policy notice may also be included in the JST Information Book. Students considering withdrawal should consult with the GTU Financial Aid Office concerning the possible ramifications of withdrawing during a term.

Payment is due by the late registration deadline. Payment must be in U.S. dollars, and should be in the form of personal check or electronic transfer of funds.  Additional information on payment is available from the JST Business Office.

Resolution of all school or GTU-related financial accounts must be made before a diploma or official transcript will be issued.

JST students are eligible for medical benefits through the health insurance plan offered to graduate students at Santa Clara University. Coverage is currently with Aetna. Cost for the school year will be announced separately when available.

Eligibility and Requirements: Any student enrolled for 6 or more units in a semester is eligible to participate in the health insurance program. Any student enrolled for 9 or more credits in a semester must have health insurance, either student health insurance or a health insurance plan of comparable benefits.All international students must have health insurance.
