Tuition Refund Plan (TRP)

USJ, like all independent schools, must take the position that no refund of tuition paid, or cancellation of tuition due, can be made in the event of absence, withdrawal, or dismissal of the student. The Tuition Refund Plan provides families with contractual protection in the event the family leaves the school before year’s end. The plan pays 50% of the unused tuition fee for withdrawals other than medical. The plan pays 100% of the unused tuition fee for medical withdrawals. The cost of the Tuition Refund Plan is 15% of the tuition amount, this fee is due in full by July 31, 2020.

Financial Aid

At USJ, we realize that choosing an independent school education is a commitment and a substantial investment for your child’s future. We strive to meet the financial need of all of our families, and because of that, we offer a need-based financial aid policy. Need-based aid is the difference between what it cost to attend USJ and the family’s ability to pay. USJ uses Blackbaud Smart Aid, a national, independent firm to review financial information submitted and determine if your family qualifies for financial aid. For more information visit the Affording USJ section of our website.
