Current BSPH Students*

If you are a BSPH student and are enrolled in a degree or certificate program at the Bloomberg School, please register through SIS just as you would for regular term courses. 

*Please note that 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.

Academic Credit, Not for Credit, Pass/Fail

Students wishing to take courses in the Summer Institutes must decide on the format in which they wish to take the courses:

  • For academic credit- courses taken for academic credit are charged per credit, according to the School's tuition and fees structure. Students taking courses for academic credit may choose whether they wish to take the courses for a letter grade or pass/fail. 
  • Not for credit- individuals may elect to take courses not for credit, recognizing that they will not receive a grade and will not earn a BSPH transcript for the courses taken. Individuals taking institute courses not for credit are not required to participate in class assignments or exams, as they will not receive a grade. Please note that certificates of participation are not distributed in all institutes, so students who wish to take courses not for credit should verify beforehand whether this is a possibility for the courses they wish to take. If you wish to register for an institute course not for credit, please visit the Non-Degree Application page. 

Registration Deadlines

Registration for the 2024 Summer Institutes ends officially on May 24, 2024. However, after this date, it is still possible for students to add (or drop) courses.

Registering for courses during the Add/Drop period

Students who wish to register for courses or change their registration after the official Summer Institute registration period has ended (please see BSPH academic calendar for applicable dates) may utilize the Bloomberg School’s SIS system in order to make changes.

  • New and returning students who wish to register for courses and do not have a JHED logon ID must submit a new application. As part of this application, you will need to provide a photo ID. Once your application and ID have been submitted, it may take up to 72 hours for you to be issued a Guest User Logon that you may  use to log in to SIS.
  • Returning students who already have a JHED ID may access the Bloomberg School’s SIS system directly. If you need more information on the add/drop or application process for non-degree seeking students, or if you do not receive a Guest User Account within 3-4 days of submitting your non-degree application, please contact the Continuing Education Student Services staff.

Once you have logged in to SIS, you will be able to register for courses and to indicate whether you intend to take them for credit or not for credit. Please see the table below that shows the timeframe for adding or dropping courses, which will depend in part on the length of the course. Please plan accordingly when adding and dropping courses.

View the Changing Registration chart below for more details on when you can add/drop courses.

Degree-seeking students who miss the registration deadline and the add/drop deadline below cannot use SIS to register and must request assistance from the Office of Student Enrollment and Account Management (SEAM)Students who are not enrolled in a degree program at Johns Hopkins University and/or students who wish to register not for academic credit should continue to reach out to for assistance with their registration.

Special Considerations for ONSITE Bloomberg School Summer Institute Courses: 

Since students attending onsite courses will need to comply with the University's COVID-19 protocols, we want to give them adequate time to prepare. For this reason, we recommend that students register for all onsite courses at least two weeks before the first onsite class in that particular course. Similarly, we recommend that students not “add” onsite courses during add/drop period. 

COVID-19 Protocols

For the safety of the entire Bloomberg School community, all individuals who take courses onsite during the 2024 Summer Institutes must adhere to the same stringent health protocols that Bloomberg School graduate degree students are required to follow. View specific directions about how these protocols apply to you, what information you will be required to provide, and when and how to provide it.

Thank you in advance for your adherence to the Bloomberg School’s important health and safety protocols.

Cancellation Policy

The Bloomberg School reserves the right to cancel any course, in which event the full enrollment fee for the course will be refunded. 

Changing Registration

Students may add or drop courses or make changes to a grade system for a course as per the following schedule. A course can not be added or the grade system changed after the stated deadlines. Any drops after the deadlines below will be processed as withdrawals and there will be no tuition refund.
