About Health Insurance Requirements

At Johns Hopkins Advanced Academic Programs, domestic students are not required to have health insurance, and cannot use Federal Student Aid (e.g., loans) to cover the cost of any health insurance plan. However, JHU’s international students in the United States on an F-1/J-1 Visa are required to purchase the university-sponsored student health benefits plan if they are enrolled with full-time status, defined as taking at least three courses per semester. Learn more about student health insurance.

Course Fees

In addition to tuition, some courses will require field trip, laboratory, technology, and thesis fees. These fees, specified in the Course Schedule for each semester/term, are payable at the same time as the regular tuition charges and are non-refundable.

Billing Statement

All fees for each course will be itemized on your statement and listed separately from tuition. If you receive financial assistance, please check with your sponsor regarding reimbursement of tuition and fees. Please note that all fees are non-refundable. Full course tuition is due at the time of registration. All other fees are payable as noted below.

Technology Fee

All fully online and blended courses in AAP require an additional technology fee. This fee applies to all students registered in online classes, and it is not refundable.

Continuation Courses Fee

Students who are in a thesis course and do not finish the thesis in the semester in which they enrolled for it must pay a continuation-of-enrollment fee of $500 for each subsequent semester/term until a final grade has been submitted. Students submit a registration form with payment to the Enrollment Office. This fee also allows students to continue using university facilities such as libraries, and the Johns Hopkins Enterprise Directory (JHED). Learn more about the particulars around this fee.

Late Registration Fee

The Late Registration period is defined as the seven days prior to the start of classes and requires a $150 fee. Late registration does not apply for new students who were accepted for that term.

Check the Academic Calendar for late registration deadlines.

The Advanced Academic Programs Office of Enrollment Services is located at 555 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, D.C. 20001

We are open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. (6:30 p.m. during an open registration period) and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you require registration assistance, please contact us.

Please note: New students registering for their first semester are exempt from this policy.

Graduation Fee

Every graduate needs to pay the graduation fee, regardless of whether or not they plan to attend the ceremony. The graduation fee is $100 and is payable upon receipt of a bill from the Student Accounts office. Student Accounts sends this bill in October to students who completed degree requirements during the summer term; in March to those who completed requirements in the Fall, and in April to Spring graduates.

Refund Policy

Students may elect to withdraw from one or more course(s) for a variety of reasons. Refunds are made in accordance with the Refund Schedule.
