General Information

Course Credit

Courses may be taken for academic credit or on a non-credit basis. Students who take a non-credit course will not be required to complete assignments, and completion of the course will not appear on a Bloomberg School transcript. Retroactive conversion from academic credit to non-credit is not permitted.


Registration for 2016 Summer Institute courses opens February 12, 2016. 

Students are strongly encouraged to register early, so that they can receive course materials in advance and have adequate time to prepare; however, later registrations will be accepted if space is available. Full tuition payment is due before or on the date of registration.

Please see the main Summer Institutes registration page for more information. There is also specific information for international students that you might find useful.

Cancellation Policy

The Health, Behavior and Society Summer Institute reserves the right to cancel a course due to low enrollment, in which case the full tuition will be refunded. The Institute abides by the Bloomberg School's refund policy.


A variety of options are available for students who require housing near the East Baltimore campus. Please see the main Summer Institutes housing page for more information.
