Registration Process 2020 (non-scholarship registrations ONLY)

Registration for those taking courses for Johns Hopkins academic credit or are not applying for a scholarship will open with Second Term registration.  Due to the popularity of our courses, early registration is recommended.

  • If you are a degree-seeking student, please register through SIS as you normally would for the regular academic term.
  • If you are not a degree-seeking student, please use the continuing education online application.
    • Please note that there will be directions listed for "New Students" and "Continuing Students."
      • If you have never registered for a JHSPH course as a non-degree seeking student, you will follow the directions for "New Students."
      • If you have previously registered for a JHSPH course as a non-degree seeking student, then you will follow the directions for "Continuing Students."
  • Full payment is expected at the time of registration. If you are using a third-party sponsor or tuition remission, please contact the Continuing Education and Student Services office to submit the paperwork.
  • Incomplete applications or those received without payment or payment voucher will not be processed.
  • Due to enrollment limits in some courses, we encourage early registration.
  • If you have any questions regarding the registration process, please contact the HPM Fall Institute.

Tuition and Fees

For those students who register for Johns Hopkins academic credit, the established University tuition fee of $1,197 per credit is charged and must be paid in U.S. dollars. MasterCard, Discover and Visa will be accepted for tuition and registration fee payments. Participants financed by employers or outside organizations such as the World Health Organization should arrange with their agencies to provide supporting documents with submission of their applications. All registrants should be prepared to provide payment to the Fall Institute for the balance of their tuition or course fees by October 30, 2020. Payment of fees in advance will expedite the registration process.

The not-for-credit registration fee is 140 Euros per day (approximately $160/USD). Participants paying the registration fee may pay in U.S. dollars or euros. Students paying in euros may make payment by electronic funds transfer (EFT), automatic clearing house (ACH) or wire through the Johns Hopkins Fall Institute account with Standard Bank in Great Britain. Students choosing this method of payment should contact The Fall Institute's Baltimore Office to obtain the account and bank routing numbers. Students choosing this method of payment should submit a copy of the payment confirmation from the bank to the Baltimore Institute Office. MasterCard, Discover and Visa are also accepted for registration fee payment.

All non-scholarship registrants are required to submit full payment at the time of registration. Due to enrollment limits, late/walk-in registration will be accepted on a space-available basis only, subject to a late registration fee.


A limited number of registration-fee scholarships are available for the 2020 Fall Institute. Please note that scholarships are not available for those choosing to take the courses for Johns Hopkins academic credit. The selection of scholarship recipients will be based on criteria established by the Johns Hopkins Fall Institute Oversight Committee.

The scholarship application deadline for members of the Barcelona Public Health Agency and students enrolled in the University Pompeu Fabra’s MPH or MPPS programs is September 21, 2020. The scholarship application deadline for those unaffiliated with those institutions is October 12, 2020 and will be reviewed and considered on a space available basis.

Upon successful submission of the scholarship application, an email will be sent confirming that the application has been received. Please keep a copy of this email as verification of your scholarship application submission.

Credit Card Payments

The University accepts American Express, MasterCard, Visa, 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.

JHU 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. Original remission forms and any additional payment due from the student must be submitted by the payment due date. It is the student's responsibility to understand and abide by the terms of the Tuition Remission Plan. Please visit the Human Resources webpage to print the Tuition Remission Forms. After the forms are completed, please print them and send to the business office along with a copy of your 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.

Wire Transfers

Please contact the HPM Fall Institute for information on submitting a wire transfer.


For information on the school's refund policy, please visit the website. If you have questions, please contact the Office of Student Accounts directly. Due to enrollment limits, participants are encouraged to register as early as possible.

Cancellation Policy

All courses must meet the minimum enrollment in order to be offered, and some courses have maximum limits as well. The Fall Institute reserves the right to cancel any course where enrollment has not been sufficient, based on the number of registrations received by the Institute as of Monday, October 12, 2020. All registered participants will be notified via email regarding any canceled classes; these cancellations will also be posted on the website.

Confirmed participants who were registered in cancelled courses will have 100 percent of their tuition or registration fee refunded. Please contact the Institute staff for more information.
