A limited number of tuition assistance scholarships are available to full-time SMU undergraduate students attending an SMU J Term course. The J Term Scholars Award can be combined with other J Term financial aid, not to exceed the cost of tuition. Interested students must send applications for the J Term Scholars Award to the SMU Financial Aid Office, 119 Blanton, by Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2012.

Assistance is awarded at the discretion of the SMU J Term Tuition Scholarship Committee, and the scholarship can only be applied towards the cost of tuition. Those receiving staff or dependent benefits through SMU are not eligible for the J Term Scholars award. The scholarship is not applicable to the Meadows New York Colloquium.

The J Term (short for January Term) allows students to complete one three-credit-hour course at a discounted tuition rate before the start of the spring semester. For J Term 2013, regular undergraduate students will pay a reduced tuition rate of $1,100 per credit hour ($3,300 per course), the same rate offered during the SMU 2012 Summer School program. Parking is free on the SMU-in-Plano campus, and no decal is required.

This year’s offerings include courses from the Cox School of Business, Dedman College of Humanities and Sciences, Lyle School of Engineering, Meadows School of the Arts, and Simmons School of Education and Human Development.
