At JVS with a Supervisor or Administrative Assistant


Student(s) may conveniently make payment plan arrangements by speaking to a Supervisor or Administrative Assistant.  A valid Visa, MasterCard, or Discover credit card or debit card must be presented.   Note:  The cardholder must be present to sign the payment plan.  

The first payment of any payment plan is due prior to the first class meeting. Subsequent payments are assigned.  By signing the payment plan agreement, students are obligated to make payments as scheduled.  If a payment is missed, it will be applied to the credit/debit card on file.  
Students may be administratively withdrawn for past due payments.  A certificate of completion will not be given to any student who has a payment plan balance.
