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:

Student Accounts Operations (TPP)
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 contracts with both Flywire and Western Union Business Solutions to accept payments from international students worldwide. You can easily and securely make education payments in your own currency, using local payment methods from the safety and convenience of your home. Each company offers various payment methods, a wide range of international currency options, competitive exchange rates, and the convenience of paying through a local bank.

Start the wire transfer process with Flywire or Western Union Business Solutions.

Tuition Payment Plan

John Hopkins University Homewood campus has partnered with Nelnet Campus Commerce which allows you to spread your education expenses over several monthly installments for a small enrollment fee. There is no interest and no pre-qualification or credit check for this service. Specific payment options and enrollment information for this Interest-Free Monthly Payment Plan can be found below or by calling 1-800-609-8056 to speak with an Education Payment Partner who can help with determining the best payment option for your educational costs.

To enroll in a payment plan, log in to the SIS Self-service Student Portal. On the billing tab, select “Summary” and then “Enroll in Nelnet Payment Plan.”

Spring 2023 Monthly Payment Plan Details:

  • Enrollment fee: $55
  • Enrollment start date: Dec. 1, 2022
  • Installment options based on time of enrollment:
    • 5 months- Jan., Feb., March, April, and May
    • 4 months – Feb., March, April, and May
    • 3 months – March, April, and May
  • Payment due date: Payments are due on the 15th of each month

Students/parents enrolled in a monthly payment plan should continue to pay Nelnet monthly. However, all new charges not covered by your original Nelnet contract (library fines, lab breakage, etc.) should be paid directly to JHU upon receiving an account statement. This would be separate from your monthly payment plan installments. Funding for your J-Card (debit card) cannot be budgeted through the Nelnet Payment Plan. Refunds for any overpayments to the plan will be processed after the payment plan contract has been fulfilled. Students/parents can adjust your monthly payment plan if excess funds are on your student 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

If you are a JHU employee participating in the JHU tuition remission benefit plan, please note the following:

  • Eligible faculty, staff and bargaining unit members:
    • Remission will now cover some required fees, visit the JHU Benefits site for more info,
    • Should attach the Bright Horizons EdAssist Application Payment Processed email using SEAM’s online form for payment processing
    • Need an invoice to submit to Bright Horizons/EdAssist? Just log in to your SIS self-service account and view/print your monthly statement(s) that contain the course info you need. Multiple statements can be submitted to Bright Horizons.
  • Eligible spouse, domestic partner and dependent children should attach their JHU tuition remission benefit application using SEAM’s online form for payment processing
  • Retirees should attach their JHU tuition remission benefit application using SEAM’s online form for payment processing
  • No remission applications will be accepted from spouse/domestic partner/dependent/retiree after December 15 for courses taken during the current calendar year.
  • If the remission does not cover the entire cost of tuition, you are required to pay the remaining balance at the time of registration.
  • You can select the monthly payment plan to pay for tuition not covered by the tuition remission benefit or choose to be electronically billed.
  • Allow 7-10 days from submission for your remission to reflect on your student account
  • 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.
  • Contact the Benefits Service Center at 410-516-2000 or to address any additional questions.
