Tuition and Fees
The $75 application fee is assessed upon submission of an application to any AAP program. It is not refundable.
Posted tuition rates are for the following terms: Summer 2021, Fall 2021, and Spring 2022.
Graduate Degrees Tuition Rates
Tuition is calculated on a per-course basis and rates vary based on your degree program of choice.
Certificate Programs Tuition Rates
Tuition is calculated on a per-course basis and rates vary based on your certificate of choice.
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.
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.
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.
Thesis Continuation 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).
Continuous Enrollment Fee
Continuous Enrollment allows students to pay a nonrefundable $75 fee that is charged automatically for any fall or spring semester that students are not enrolled in a credit course (May intensive sessions and summer semesters are excluded). Unless they request a Leave of Absence, students must enroll in the fall or spring semester immediately following the semester in which they paid the Continuous Enrollment fee, if not they will become inactive and will be withdrawn from the program.
Exemptions from the continuous enrollment policy will be granted only for documented medical emergencies, approved leave of absence, or military services. For an exemption to this policy, submit a request with supporting documentation. Those requesting an official Leave of Absence should complete the online Leave of Absence Request form.
Late Registration Fee
Registration is open for approximately two months prior to the start of a semester/term, offering several ways for students to register. Late registration starts the day after registration ends and requires a $150 fee. Check the Academic and Registration Calendar for late registration deadlines. Students registering late should check the Refund Schedule. Students who wish to register late can fax their registration to (202) 452-1970.
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.
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.
