If you are ready to confirm your place in the Class of 2023 or our fall 2019 Transfer class and officially join the JCU community, you will need to complete the Enrollment Reservation Form (ERF) and submit a deposit of $300.

You can do this in one of the following ways:

  • Online with payment by credit card. Log in to your JCU Gateway account to electronically indicate that you accept the offer of admission, and then you will be able to pay the $300 deposit by credit card.
  • By mail with payment by check. Download a pdf of the Enrollment Reservation Form, or use the ERF that will be included with your financial aid award. Deposits sent by mail must be postmarked on or before Wednesday, May 1, 2019 for first-year students and on or before Friday, August 23, 2019 for transfer students.
  • By phone. Call your enrollment manager directly or our general office line (888.335.6800) during normal business hours and we can take credit card information over the phone to pay your deposit.
  • In person. If you’d like to personally submit your deposit in the Office of Admission, we’ll ask you to complete an enrollment reservation form and can accept cash, check, or credit card.

The enrollment deposit is $300* for all incoming students. For on-campus residents, $100 of this deposit serves as an advance payment on your first semester bill. The other $200 will be placed as a housing security deposit. For commuter students, the entire $300 deposit serves as an advance payment on your first semester bill.

*An enrollment deposit represents your intent to enroll at John Carroll for the fall semester. We expect that a student who has a deposit on account at John Carroll will attend. When students cancel their deposits, this may prevent other eligible students from choosing JCU and will impact our planning for the new semester courses and housing. As a result, the $300 deposit is not refundable after May 1 for first-year students or July 1 for transfer students. No exceptions are made to this rule. Although we are not able to grant extensions to these deadlines, we will accept enrollment deposits from admitted students after these dates on a space available basis.
