Tuition and Fees

Tuition and Fees Overview

The Bloomberg School operates on academic terms, instead of semesters. 

  • a term is eight weeks (about half a typical semester) 

  • the traditional Academic Year is four terms (August to May) 

Full-time status requires registering for 12 or more credits per term. Registering for 11 or fewer credits per term is defined as part-time status. 

Tuition is assessed per term by the Office of Student Accounts & Business Services. Review the grid below to estimate the cost of your program

Student Accounts also has information regarding non-degree applicationspayment due dates and payment options.  

Merit Scholarships are awarded by the academic departments. The Financial Aid Office provides assistance with need-based grants, federal and private loans, and the Federal Work-Study Program. The Financial Aid Office also calculates the Cost of Attendance, which includes direct and indirect costs.

These grants provide funding to a portion of incoming students who, without this money, may otherwise not be able to afford to relocate to JHU for their PhD program. This is not a merit-based grant. The grant applications will be evaluated solely based on financial need. View more information about the need-based relocation grants for PhD students.

Tuition for Certificates

Part-time Students
  • Part-time BSPH degree students and non-degree students pursuing a certificate program pay the Bloomberg School's part-time per credit tuition rate, 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. 
  • Non-Degree Students enrolled in the School’s 3 OPAL certificate programs will receive the OPAL scholarship.
  • Part-time BSPH degree students and non-degree students who take 12 or more academic credits in one term will be charged the School’s  full-time tuition rate for their enrollment for that term. That is, they will be charged the full-time rate, rather than being charged for course credits individually.
  • 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.

Summer, Fall, and Winter Institute Tuition

For-Credit Rate

Students taking Summer, Fall and/or Winter Institute courses for academic credit must pay the  Bloomberg School's part-time per credit tuition rate, multiplied by the number of academic credit units taken.

For Summer Institute courses in 2024, the proposed tuition rate (subject to confirmation in March, 2024) is $1,374/credit.

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.

Non-Credit Rate

Fall Institute Non-credit rate: 140 euros or approximately $154.00 per day/credit

Winter Institute 2024 Non-credit rate: $661 per credit

Summer Institutes 2024 Non-credit Rate: The non-credit rate for participants in Summer Institutes courses in 2024 is $687 per credit. Individual Summer Institutes may offer scholarships for courses taken not for academic credit, and information about these scholarships is listed on the individual Summer Institute webpages.

The estimated cost of attendance at the Bloomberg School includes direct expenses, (tuition and fees) which are billed by the School, and indirect expenses for estimated living costs. The living allowance below is developed in compliance with federal regulations for determining eligibility for federal student aid (loans and work-study funding). These values should only be used as an estimate. Your actual costs will vary based upon needed books, supplies, and living arrangements. Students with special circumstances for unanticipated expenses (see the FA-Budget Adjustment Request Form for examples) can request a budget adjustment to their cost of attendance that may allow for additional federal loan borrowing eligibility.
