Degree-Seeking and Certificate Students

All Bloomberg School students currently enrolled in a degree program or for-credit certificate program at the school must register for classes (whether they are on-site or online classes) via the University's Student Information System.

Non-Degree/Credit-Seeking Students

You are allowed to take Bloomberg School classes for credit even though you are not working toward a degree. If you are not currently enrolled in a degree program anywhere at Johns Hopkins University, you are considered a "Special Student Limited."

If you fall into this category, you can register for classes (whether they are on-site or online classes) by first following the instructions on the Bloomberg School's non-degree application:

  1. First, email the course instructor or course contact (as per the course catalog description) to receive permission to participate in the course.
  2. Then, complete a special student application form.
  3. Submit the registration form, instructor permission and payment by the registration deadline. Submission instructions are at the top of the registration form. Deadlines are as per the academic calendar.

Keep in mind that these instructions apply to the regular 8-week terms. For the registration process for institute courses, please see the individual institute websites.

Non-Degree/Non-Credit-Seeking Students

For more information on registering for courses as a non-credit student, please visit the the non-credit section of the Bloomberg School's non-degree application.

Registering for Online Courses

Whether you are a degree-seeking student or a non-degree-seeking student, you must register and complete the Introduction to Online Learning before you register for any Bloomberg School online classes. Introduction to Online Learning is a free, mandatory prerequisite for all online courses.

Please note that registration for the free online learning options offered through OpenCourseWare, Coursera or iTunesU is a different process. Visit our online learning page for information about those options.
