Explore the different types of refunds including tuition refunds, financial aid refunds, and AmeriCorps refunds.
Tuition Refunds from Dropped or Cancelled Courses
Students who become eligible to receive a refund as a result of a dropped or cancelled course will be refunded according to the original method of payment. Please allow four to six weeks to receive your refund. All fees are non-refundable unless a course is cancelled and this is the only course for which you are registered.
Students who paid their tuition by wire transfer or Convera will be refunded in the form of a check, unless otherwise requested.
JHU employees who used their tuition remission benefits and drop a course will have the remission benefit 100% reversed. Tuition remission does not cover tuition costs from courses not completed. Please see the JHU Human Resources website for more information.
Sponsors/employers who pay tuition will be refunded if a course is dropped or cancelled. The employer will only be refunded the amount of the tuition minus any penalties. Learn more about our refund policy.
Financial Aid Refunds
Once all tuition and fees have been covered by financial aid, students are eligible to receive a refund of the excess aid that remains on their account. If you do not wish to receive a refund, please contact the Financial Aid Office through SEAM’s online form.
Johns Hopkins University issues refunds electronically via direct deposit through Flywire. To set up direct deposit for your account, log in to the SIS self-service student portaland click on Billing, Summary and Set Up Direct Deposit. Be sure to verify your address as well since checks are mailed as a default if direct deposit hasn’t been set up. Go to Personal Info then Summary to verify your mailing address.
AmeriCorps Stipend Refunds
Once the stipend has been received by the university and posted to your student account, a refund will be requested after all tuition and fees have been covered in full.
