General Institute Tuition Information

Tuition and Fees

Cost per Credit for Institute Courses

Please see the BSPH Tuition & Fees page for more information about the cost of participating in the Summer Institutes. Please note that there is a different cost to take Summer Institute courses for academic credit or not-for-academic credit. Students who take courses not for credit will not receive a grade for the course, or a BSPH transcript.

Please note:  A $50 course change fee will be charged if a change in registration from academic credit to non-credit or non-credit to academic credit is requested for institute enrollments.  

BSPH Degree Students

Full-time students in BSPH academic degree programs must pay for enrollments in Summer and Winter Institute courses separately, and in addition to their full-time tuition. Full-time students enrolling in up to 11 credits will pay per credit, and students enrolling in 12 or more credits will pay a flat rate.

JHU (division other than Public Health) Degree Seeking Students

  • Students enrolled in other JHU degree programs outside the Bloomberg School may register interdivisionally for the Summer Institutes. However, students should be aware that doing so will incur a separate tuition charge with the Bloomberg School at the BSPH per credit tuition rate.

Financial Assistance

Typically, financial aid is available only for students enrolled in a degree program. However, there may be some exceptions. Please contact the School's Financial Aid Office for further information. 

Payment Options

Payment options include cash, check, or credit card. Online payment by credit card or electronic check is available. Employees of the University may be eligible to use JHU tuition remission. Sponsored students may pay with a third-party contract.

Students may pay online in SIS using credit card (Mastercard, Visa, Discover, or American Express) or by electronic check payment (ACH). Simply select "Summary" under the Billing tab in SIS. Once payment has been made, receipts can be printed for record-keeping purposes.  

If you have questions, please contact the Student Accounts Office for more information. 

Check Payments

Checks should be made payable to Johns Hopkins University and mailed to:

Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
Summer Institute Office
615 N. Wolfe Street, Suite W1101
Baltimore, MD 21205

Credit Card Payments

The University accepts American Express, MasterCard, Visa and Discover card. A student who submits a credit card payment that is declined will be placed on financial hold and may be removed from courses for which they are currently registered. 

JHU Tuition Remission

Students who are eligible to participate in the JHU Tuition Remission Plan must provide the appropriate tuition remission benefit application in lieu of payment for tuition. Fees are not covered under the Tuition Remission Plan. If the remission does not cover the entire cost of tuition, a student is required to pay the remaining balance. Original remission forms and any additional payment due from the student must be submitted by the payment due date. It is the student's responsibility to understand and abide by the terms of the Tuition Remission Plan. After the forms are completed, please print them and submit to the Bloomberg School's Continuing Education Student Services' Office, along with a copy of your registration form. 

Please be aware that the tuition remission benefit is offered by Johns Hopkins University, so questions about the program should be directed to the Benefits Service Center

3rd Party Contract

A student must submit a purchase order or contract from their employer permitting the School to bill the company for tuition and any associated fees. If the contract does not cover the entire cost of tuition and fees, a student is required to pay the remaining balance by the payment due date. Students who receive payments directly from their employer are required to pay their tuition in full, then seek reimbursement from the employer. 


For information on the School's refund policy, please visit Student Accounts and Business Services. If you have questions, please contact the Office of Student Accounts directly. 

Cancellation Policy

The Bloomberg School reserves the right to cancel courses for any reason, including low enrollment. In case of a cancellation, the full enrollment fee for the course(s) will be refunded. If a course is cancelled or closed, the applicant is notified immediately and a full refund is processed automatically, unless another course is requested.
