If you are instructed to report for jury service, you are entitled to a $50.00 attendance fee for each day of attendance and 65.5 cents per mile, round trip, even if you take public transportation.

Payment is based on the actual mileage necessarily traveled to and from the juror’s residence by the shortest practical route in going to and returning from the place of service. See 28 U.S.C. § 1871(c)(1). When reporting to the courthouse to begin their service, jurors should thus be prepared to provide the actual mileage traveled round-trip between their residence and the courthouse.



Students are not automatically excused from jury service. Students may request a postponement that will be convenient to their Summer or Winter intersession schedules.

Students who attend school outside of the court’s jurisdiction are to complete their questionnaire; include their new address; indicate the name of the county, state or foreign country of primary residence during the past year; and provide the dates of their absence from this court’s jurisdiction.
