Step 4: Evaluation Process & Tuition Fee Deferral

The evaluation process for all financial aid applicants can take approximately 4-8 weeks to complete. During this time, additional documents may be requested. Students should periodically check their MySJSU for notifications.

To qualify for a tuition fee deferral, students selected for verification must complete all requested financial aid documents by the deadline date indicated below. Students not selected for verification will receive a tuition fee deferral if their financial aid application is completed prior to the dates below:

What is a Tuition Fee deferral? 

The tuition fee deferral protects course enrollment and delays the payment of tuition fees. The tuition fee deferral is temporary and is removed the second week of the semester. Once the tuition fee deferral is removed, students are responsible to pay fees by the next payment period, regardless of their financial aid status. 

The tuition fee deferral does not defer housing charges. Refer to Frequently Asked Questions or University Housing Services for payment requirements.
