JHU Tuition Remission

*JHU Faculty and staff who are eligible to participate in the JHU Tuition Remission Plan must provide the Tuition Remission Benefit Form  in lieu of payment for tuition.  When completing the tuition remission form, please select the option for "Non-Credit Professional Development" for course type and "Public Health-Non Credit-Professional Development-100%" for the course offered section.  A supervisor's signature is required in order to verify this course qualifies as professional development, and a department budget number is also required.  In the event that you register for a course and do not attend any classes (and fail to drop the course before the end of the add/drop period) your department will be charged the full tuition price for the course (see below for add/drop dates).  Please return completed forms by emailing them to Cristina DeNardo at 

Fellows and Residents

**Fellows and residents are not eligible for tuition remission benefits, so we offer 1/2 tuition rate.  If your department or division is covering the cost of the SOCI program, please make sure to include both the department budget number and fund number in the payment portion of the registration form.
