Registration Policy

GENERAL REGISTRATION POLICY

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 begins several months before each semester (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/. 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 details).

When students initially register for courses each semester, they will be charged tuition fees and a non-refundable $175 registration fee. Following their initial course registration, students may register for additional courses without being subject to any additional course registration fees (see Adding a Course).

Registrations are processed as they are received. If a selected course is full, a student may be placed in an alternate course. Additional information regarding registration may be found in the online course schedule, https://sis.jhu.edu/classes/.

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.
