Student Accounts

For general inquiries about student accounts, specifically receipt of payments, refunds, online tuition payments, financial holds, 1098-T forms, collections, company billing, and more, please call the Student Accounts Office (SAO) at 410-234-4755 or request support through SEAM's online form.

There are multiple tuition payment options. Follow the guidelines to ensure that your tuition is received and any financial aid refunds are disbursed.

Tuition Payments and Penalties

Students with approved financial aid should elect to be electronically billed and will be responsible for any charges not covered by their award. Students enrolled in a Johns Hopkins Carey Business School program should see Schedule A for billing periods and a payment due date. A late payment fee of $250 will be assessed if payment is not received by the due date. Students who choose the monthly payment plan may use Schedule B as a payment guide. 

Students with outstanding balances will receive financial holds. A financial hold prohibits students from registering for future courses and receiving services until the balance is paid in full. Students with a financial hold may also be prohibited from participating in Carey-sponsored events, activities, or excursions. Payments from students seeking to register may be kept and applied against prior obligations to the university. Delinquent accounts turned over to the collection agency may be assessed a penalty fee, in addition to the outstanding debt.

If you submit a paper or electronic Automatic Clearing House check that is returned by the bank, you will be charged a $35 returned check fee, placed on financial hold, and may be removed from courses for which you are currently registered. Grades, transcripts, and diplomas may be withheld, and you will be prevented from registering for future courses until payment is secured. 

Pay with a check, by mail, or in person 

Checks for tuition and fees should be made payable to Johns Hopkins University and should reference the student’s Hopkins/Person ID. Payments can be mailed to the Student Accounts Shared Services Team: 

JHU Third Party Payer & Payment Processing Team (TPP Team) 
Johns Hopkins University Garland Hall

If you submit a paper or electronic ACH check that is returned by the bank, you will be charged a $35 returned check fee, placed on financial hold, and may be removed from courses for which you are currently registered. Grades, transcripts and diplomas, and any other services may be withheld, and you will be prevented from registering for future courses until payment is secured.

To enroll in the payment plan, students should have their Hopkins ID and the full amount of tuition, fees, and healthcare insurance premium (if applicable) ready. Intersession courses can be included in the spring semester payment plan. Students must acknowledge the payment options and associated fees.

Employer/sponsor contract 

Students with outside organizations sponsoring their tuition and fees are required to submit official documentation and complete a brief acknowledgement section in SIS Self-Service. Johns Hopkins University Third Party Payer coordinates the sponsor billing process.

Johns Hopkins tuition remission

A completed tuition remission application for each course must be submitted to the Office of Student Accounts. Please upload your application(s) via our SEAM's online form. 

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. 

You can visit the tuition remission section of the Johns Hopkins Benefits Site for your remission application and other important remission information.

Financial aid 

Financial aid at the Carey Business School refers to a broad range of scholarship, grant, and loan programs. When students apply for financial aid, they are generally applying for all of the potential programs for which they might be eligible. Based on the eligibility guidelines for each program, available funding, and the student's own financial resources, students will be offered one or more types of aid. The basic premise behind financial aid is that students (and their families where applicable) are responsible for paying for college costs to the extent that they are able. Financial aid supplements each student's own financial resources.
