Certificate Programs

Tuition for Certificate Programs


The cost to undertake a certificate program varies by student type. Tuition rates are reassessed and approved each spring.

Part-Time BSPH Degree Students and Non-Degree Students

Part-time BSPH degree students and non-degree students pursuing a certificate program pay the Bloomberg School's tuition rate for part-time degree students, multiplied by the number of academic credit units taken for the certificate program; all certificate programs require a minimum of 18 academic credits, and many programs require more than 18 credits. The current rate per credit unit for the 2022-2023 Academic Year (from May 31, 2022 - May 19, 2023) is US $1,270 per academic credit. The rate for the 2023-2024 Academic Year (May 30, 2023 - May 17, 2024) is US $1,321 per academic credit.

  • Non-Degree Students enrolled in OPAL certificate programs will receive the OPAL scholarship. See details on the BSPH tuition web page. 

Part-time BSPH degree students and non-degree students who take 12 or more academic credits in one term will be charged a flat fee of US $15,240 (Academic Year 2022-23) for their enrollment for that term. That is, they will be charged the full-time rate, rather than being charged for course credits individually. For the 2023-2024 Academic Year, the full-time rate will be $15,852 per term.

The BSPH tuition rate for future academic years may be different from the current rate, so students who will require more than one academic year to complete their certificate program should anticipate that the cost per academic credit may vary in future academic years. 

Full-Time BSPH Degree Students

Full-time BSPH degree-seeking students who have matriculated into an academic degree program at BSPH do not pay additional tuition for certificate courses, with the exception of Institute courses, whose costs are typically separate from degree program costs. 

Students Enrolled in Degree Programs in Other Divisions of JHU

Full-time students enrolled in a degree-program at another division of JHU should check with the Office of Records and Registration at their primary school of record to obtain information about the number of courses they may take at BSPH and the cost associated with those courses.
