Tuition and Fee Payment Through SIS (Student Information System)

The Johns Hopkins University provides student account information using SIS (Student Information System) at sis.jhu.edu/sswf/. This website allows students to view their accounts, make online payments, and update information. SIS is the official means of generating tuition bills to School of Nursing students. Paper bills are no longer mailed to enrolled students.

The self-service system will automatically send an email notification to the student’s JHSON email address when a new bill is ready to be viewed online. No sign-up is required. Each registered student is automatically enrolled. It is the student’s responsibility to check their student account and pay their tuition promptly.

Student Health Insurance

All matriculated students must be covered by a health insurance plan. The School of Nursing will provide information about Johns Hopkins University’s student health insurance plan for students who are not covered under another plan. Students who do not provide proof of insurance may be automatically enrolled in the student health plan and will be charged accordingly. All on-campus students must have insurance that will fully insure them in Baltimore, Maryland. No out-of-state HMO or out-of-state coverage will be approved.

Health Services Fee

All full-time on-campus matriculated students will pay an $850 annual health services fee and will have unrestricted access to all services at University Health Services.

Late Registration Fee

A student who for any reason does not complete registration until after the prescribed registration period must pay a $50 late registration fee before that registration is finalized by the registrar. Information about late registration fees is included in registration materials distributed by the Office of the Registrar.

Late Payment Fee

The University assesses a 1.5% per month late fee on the unpaid balance for any student whose account is in arrears. Students who have unpaid balances from a previous semester will not be allowed to register for subsequent semesters.

Transcript/Diplomas

There is no charge for transcripts. No transcript will be released if the student has an unpaid student account balance. Diplomas will not be released to students with unpaid student account balances.
