Students eligible for JHU tuition remission must submit a completed and signed remission form along with the registration form to Carnegie 320 or faxed to 410-502-7513 (not to the Registrar's Office as the form states). One remission form for each course must be submitted. The remission form can be found here: Tuition Remission. Please select the option for "Non-Credit Professional Development" for course type and "Public Health-Non Credit-Professional Development-100%" for course offered section on the form. A department budget number and supervisor signature are required. Your department will only be charged if you register for the course and fail to show up for the course or do not withdraw from the course before the end of the add/drop period (see below for dates).
Payment options include cash, check or credit card (MasterCard, American Express, Visa or Discover). Online payment by credit card or electronic check is also available. Employees of the university may be eligible to use JHU tuition remission. Fellows and residents may pay with a department/division budget number (and fund number). Sponsored students may pay with a third-party contract.
Academic Credit & Non-Credit Students
Students should submit their check payment to:
Johns Hopkins University
Bloomberg School of Public Health
615 N. Wolfe Street/Suite W1101
Baltimore, MD 21205-2179
All checks should be made payable to Johns Hopkins University. A student who submits a check that is returned for insufficient funds will be assessed a $25.00 fee and placed on financial hold, and may be removed from courses which he or she 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 university accepts three major credit cards: MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover. 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 he or she is currently registered. Grades may be withheld and students may be prevented from registering for future courses until payment is reissued.
JHU Tuition Remission
Faculty and staff who are eligible to participate in the JHU Tuition Remission Plan must provide the Tuition Remission Benefit Form in lieu of payment for tuition. When completing the tuition remission form, please select the option for "Non-Credit Professional Development" for course type and "Public Health-Non Credit-Professional Development-100%" for the course offered section. A surpervisor's signature is required in order to verify this course qualifies as professional development, and a department budget number is also required. In the event that you register for a course and do not attend any classes (and fail to drop the course before the end of the add/drop period) your department will be charged the full tuition price for the course (see below for add/drop dates). Please return completed forms by emailing them to Kristi Baschnagel at firstname.lastname@example.org; faxing them to 410-502-7513 or delivering them to Carnegie 320.
Fellows and Residents
Fellows and residents are not eligible for tuition remission benefits. However, we do offer 1/2 tuition rate for fellows and residents interested in the SOCI program. If your department or division is covering the cost of the SOCI program, please make sure to include both the department budget number and fund number in the payment portion of the registration form.
Third Party Contract
A student must submit a purchase order or contract from his/her 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.

Students will receive a 100 percent tuition refund for any withdrawals made during the posted add/drop period each term. There is no tuition refund after the posted add/drop dates:
