Billing, Payments, and Refunds

Here you'll find information on making payments, deadlines, tuition remission, third-party payers, and more.

Online Billing

The easiest way to pay tuition bills is online via the Student Information System (SIS). There, students with a JHED logon ID can:

  • View bills online (generally posted on the second Thursday of every month) 
  • View their account summaries, current balance, and most recent transactions
  • Make payments by credit card (MasterCard, Visa, Discover, Amex) or electronic check
  • Download and print a copy of a bill for sending check payments via U.S. mail
  • Set up authorized third-party payers to view and pay bills online

Paper Check Payments

Students who are enrolled in for-credit courses (including Institutes) may mail paper checks to:

JHU Payment Processing
Garland Hall, B33
3400 N. Charles Street
Baltimore, MD 21218

All checks should be made payable to Johns Hopkins University. Please include student’s name and student ID number. A student who submits a check that is returned for insufficient funds will be assessed a $25.00 returned check fee and placed on financial hold, and may also be removed from courses in which the student is currently registered. Grades may be withheld and students may be prevented from registering for future courses until payment is reissued. Payment from students seeking to register may be applied against prior obligations to the University.

Credit Card Payments

The School accepts MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover.  A student who submits a credit card payment that is declined will be assessed a $25.00 fee and placed on financial hold and may be removed from courses in which the student is currently registered. Grades may be withheld and students may be prevented from registering for future courses until payment is reissued.

Western Union for International Payments

The Western Union payment option allows international students to pay student account balances in the currency of their choice and provides a simple and secure method for initiating payments electronically. We encourage all international students to choose this cost-effective and efficient method of payment.

International Bank Wire Transfer

Students wishing to make payments via wire transfer will need to provide the initiating bank with the following information:

Johns Hopkins University
M&T Bank
1 M&T Plaza
Buffalo, NY 14203

  • Transit/Routing/ABA# 022000046
  • IBAN number: N/A
  • Account number: 970370230
  • Type of account: depository
  • CHIPS ABA number if remitter requests it: 0555

Please instruct the sender to reference Bloomberg School of Public Health and the student's name.

Tuition Remission

Students who are eligible to participate in the JHU Tuition Remission Plan must provide the 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. Completed and signed Tuition Remission forms and any additional payment due from the student must be submitted by the payment due date for each term. It is the student's responsibility to understand and abide by the terms of the Tuition Remission Plan. 

Third-Party Payers

Students with third party payers—outside organizations sponsoring some or all of their tuition and fees—are required to submit documentation and complete a brief acknowledgement section in SIS. Click here for detailed instructions and information.

Payment Policies

Each student attending the School assumes responsibility to pay all University-related expenses not covered by financial aid and/or awards by the University.

If your account is delinquent, and satisfactory payment arrangements have not been made, the University may take steps necessary to collect the balance due including, but not limited to:

  • Preventing a student from registering for classes
  • Withholding transcripts and diploma
  • Placing your account with a collection agency and adding 15% collection cost to balance placed
  • Taking legal action to collect the balance due.

Students who withdraw from the University must make arrangements to meet all outstanding financial obligations. Your academic transcript will not be released until payment of all obligations has been made in full.

Graduating students must pay all financial obligations to the University prior to graduation. Your diploma and/or academic transcript will not be allowed until this obligation has been met.

Student Loan Refunds

Students who are registered for at least six credits per term and have a credit balance due to excess loans will receive their student loan refund via their selected refund preference with BankMobile.

View our institution's contract and U.S. Department of Education Compliance Book with BankMobile, a division of Customer Bank.

If your financial aid file is complete (all documents and outstanding requirements were submitted on or before our published deadlines) and you are entitled to a refund of excess federal student aid funds, you should receive your refund in time to buy required books and supplies during the first week of a term. Students enrolled in modules and/or courses that do not begin within seven days of the start of the term may not receive their aid until they actually begin class. If your refund is delayed, contact the Office of Student Financial Services about obtaining emergency funds to purchase required books and supplies for the term.

Tuition Refunds

Most degree-seeking students are eligible to receive refunds resulting from credit balances on their student account through BankMobile.

Students will receive a full tuition refund for any drop made during the posted add/drop period for each term.

There is no tuition refund after the posted add/drop date. Students who withdraw from a course after the posted add/drop date are responsible for the tuition payment even if the original tuition was paid by third party or tuition remission.
