Bills & Payments

To view or pay any balance online, students may access their account by simply accessing SIS and signing in using the username and password they have been assigned. See instructions for how to view and pay your bill through SIS below.

View Your Bill Online

Invoices are e-billed monthly in the student’s name and viewable through SIS for your convenience. An alert that the bill is updated and ready for viewing will be sent to the student’s email address on file with the Office of the Registrar and to all Authorized Users. Payment due dates are also available through SIS. Changes to a student’s personal email address can be made in SIS self-service under “Personal Info” then “Summary.”

Authorizing a User

Parents may be set up as “Authorized Users” by the student, in order to have viewable access to the account. Authorized users access the account and all financial activity on SIS with their own ID and password. Online payments are made by e-check using the account and routing numbers located at the bottom of any paper check.

In compliance with federal law and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, the student is the only person who can grant anyone access to his/her account.

Ways to Pay

Pay Your Bill Online

Students can make payments on their billing accounts online via SIS with the following payment methods: eCheck or credit card (for AAP or EP students only). Students may access their account by simply accessing SIS and signing in using the username and password they have been assigned.

Pay with a Check by Mail

Checks for tuition and fees should be made payable to JHU and should include your Hopkins ID number. Please note that your Hopkins ID is not your JHED ID. You can find your Hopkins ID in the upper right-hand corner of SIS. Payments should be mailed to:

JHU Third-Party Payer & Payment Processing Team (TPP Team)
Johns Hopkins University
Garland Hall B33
3400 N. Charles Street
Baltimore, MD 21218

Financial Aid/Scholarships

Financial Aid Awards are divided evenly between terms. Loans are credited at the net amount. If any adjustments are made to these awards through appeal or change in eligibility, you should adjust your “Amount Due” to reflect the change. Your aid may be revised if you fail to sign any needed promissory notes for your loans. The Office of Financial Aid will notify you if your aid changes.

  • Outside scholarship checks may require your signature/endorsement before we can formally credit them to your account. We will send a notice to the student’s campus mailbox if you need to sign any checks. If you receive any scholarships besides those listed on your Award Notice, you must notify the Office of Financial Aid to determine your eligibility to retain your aid package.
  • Work Study awards are never included on any bill from Student Accounts. You will receive weekly paychecks based on your hours worked each week. Most students use this money for personal expenses, as it is not applicable to tuition or fees.

Wire Transfers

Johns Hopkins University has engaged Western Union Business Solutions to facilitate the receipt of student fees from international students. This payment option allows students to pay the university their student account balance in the currency of your choice and provides a simple and secure method for initiating payments electronically. We encourage all international students to choose this cost-effective and efficient method of payment to the Johns Hopkins University.

Begin the wire transfer process or you can reach this information in SIS, under Billing > Summary.

Tuition Payment Plan

John Hopkins University Homewood campus is pleased to make the services of Nelnet Campus Commerce available to you and your family. Nelnet Campus Commerce’s Interest-Free Monthly Payment Option allows you to spread your education expenses over smaller monthly installments for only a small enrollment fee. There is no interest and no pre-qualification or credit check for this service. With this payment plan, you have 24-hour access to account information through Nelnet Campus Commerce toll-free automated account information and personal account service Monday through Saturday. Education Payment Partners are available to help you determine the best payment option for your education costs.

This is a popular option for many of our families because it reduces the need to borrow and it gives families more control over their savings. Nelnet Campus Commerce’s services have helped over two million students at more than a thousand schools nationwide afford education.

Specific payment options and enrollment information in the Interest-Free Monthly Payment Plan can be found on Nelnet Campus Commerce’s website or by calling 1-800-722-4867 to speak with an Education Payment Partner.

Students/parents enrolled in the monthly payment plan should continue to pay monthly. Half of your yearly contract will be credited to your fall bill and the remaining half to your spring bill. All new charges not covered by the original contract (library fines, lab breakage, etc.) should be paid directly to JHU upon receipt of an invoice, separately from your monthly payment plan installments. Funding for your J-Card (debit card) cannot be budgeted through the Tuition Pay Plan. Refunds for any excess funds will be processed after the payment plan contract has been fulfilled. Students/parents can adjust the monthly payment plan if excess funds are on the account to avoid waiting for a refund.

Tuition Payment Deferral

Homewood graduate students completing a final degree during the first eight weeks of the fall semester or the first four weeks of the spring semester will generate a tuition reimbursement for that semester to whatever entity covered the cost—the student, the department, the advisor, etc. This applies only to students for whom completion of a master’s project, master’s essay, master’s journal submission or doctoral thesis is the sole remaining degree requirement at the start of the final semester. (NOTE: If a student completes a Tuition Deferral Form indicating an expectation to complete the degree within a specific grace period, no payment is required to register for that semester. If the grace period deadline is not met, however, that semester’s tuition charge will be added to the student’s account.)

Third Party Payers

For information on Third Party Payers—organizations that sponsor all or part of a student’s tuition, including domestic or foreign companies, foreign embassies, and state/federal government agencies (including the military and VA)—please visit the Third Party Payer website.

Tuition Remission

An approved original tuition remission voucher and the tuition remission application must accompany your registration. Please note that students are financially responsible for dropped courses paid for with tuition remission. Students receiving tuition remission benefits from JHU should read the contract carefully, as you must complete the class to retain benefits. Tech fees will not be covered under remission. Call the Center for Training and Education at 443-997-6890 or visit the HR benefits website to address any questions.
