Registration and Enrollment
Only students who have been admitted to a program (or as a Graduate Special Student) may register for courses.
Students are encouraged to register for courses as early as possible during each registration period since a course may close or be canceled due to low enrollment before the end of registration.
Students may not sit in on a class without being officially registered for that class, nor should they contact instructors to request permission to register for or attend a closed course. Students who fail to complete their registration and sit in on a class will not receive a grade or credit for attending class.
Registration opens several months before each semester begins (see Registration Calendar below). Students who have been admitted to a program may register for courses online using the School of Education’s SIS Self-Service website at https://sis.jhu.edu/, which is available 24 hours a day. Registration materials may also be brought to any campus center or to the Office of the Registrar at the Columbia Center. When registering online, by mail, or by fax, students may choose to pay then or be electronically billed (see Student Accounts for more information).
When initially registering for courses each semester, students will be charged tuition fees and a non-refundable $175 registration fee. Following the initial course registration, students may register for additional courses without being subject to any additional course registration fees.
Registrations are processed as they are received. If a selected course is full, a student may be placed in an alternate course.
Please refer to the links below or contact the Office of the Registrar for any specific questions regarding registration.

Please note: Not all cohort students are allowed to register using the SIS self-service system. For information on how to register in those circumstances, please contact your cohort coordinator.
To log into SIS in order to register for courses, you must use your JHED login ID, which is assigned to you upon your admission to the SOE. If you do not know this login ID, you can search for yourself on the JHED website, which contains further instructions for setting up your account and password.
Student Email Accounts
Students are also required to set up and use their jhu.edu email account.Instructions are available in our Student Services section. All students will need their JHU email account in order to register for classes. The University sends all correspondence to a student’s JHU email account, so it is important for students to both activate and monitor this email account.
Registration can only be performed by students who have been admitted to a graduate degree or certificate program. Those waiting for their admissions status to be determined may search our Online Course Schedule to view course offerings by semester.
Please note that in the event of extraordinary circumstances, the School of Education may change the normal academic schedule and/or make appropriate changes to course structure, format, and delivery. In the event such changes become necessary, information will be posted on the School of Education web site.
Note: Students should use their student JHED ID number to register for courses. All outstanding debts to Johns Hopkins University must be paid in full in order to register for courses.
We hope that you’ll find the answers to many of your questions on this site. However, please feel free to contact us if you need any additional information.
