Withdrawal does not necessarily release students from financial obligations to the university. The Tuition Refund Schedules below illustrate the eligible amount of tuition that can be refunded based on your withdrawal date.
Non-attendance, discontinuity of study, or abandonment of a course(s) or program is not a form of withdrawal. Students who fail to notify the university (consistent with the directions above) will continue to be charged for their course(s) or program.
Please review the Summer 2021 Withdrawal Terms Dates and Deadlines as maintained by the Office of the Registrar.
Pre-college and visiting undergraduate applicants should pay the non-refundable application fee and the program deposit through their online Summer at Hopkins application. All remaining program expenses are billed directly to students by the University’s Student Accounts office. Students may view charges and pay remaining balances using the Student Information System. Payment is due upon receipt. If program fees are not paid in full at least 10 days before the start of the program, you may be withdrawn from the program.
Payment and Clearance of Account
Any outstanding balance on a student account must be resolved before final enrollment is permitted. Payment to clear account balances for summer tuition and fees is due immediately upon notification of charges, and no later than 10 days before the course or program begins.
Uncleared accounts (defined as more than a $0 balance) on or after the payment deadline are subject to administrative action by the university, including, but not limited to, the following:
- A registration hold
- Withdrawal for non-payment
- And/or the balance may be forwarded to a collection agency for action (collection fees will be charged to the student and a report made to credit bureaus).

No Refund if Dismissed by JHU
No refund of tuition and fees or payments made to Johns Hopkins University will be permitted in cases where the student is dismissed, administratively withdrawn, suspended, or expelled due to academic, conduct, or other violations of JHU or Summer at Hopkins codes of conduct and policies.
Course Cancelation Policy
Johns Hopkins University reserves the right to cancel a summer course or courses for personnel or administrative reasons, including low enrollment. Course and program enrollments are reviewed approximately four weeks prior to the start dates, and cancellations are generally made at that time. Summer at Hopkins staff will make every effort to notify affected students of cancellations at least four weeks before the start of the course. However, Johns Hopkins University reserves the right to cancel courses at any time leading up to, and including, the first week of classes.
A full refund of charges and payments will be made to students who cannot find an alternate course, or who do not wish to continue with summer registration. When courses are canceled, our staff will advise pre-college students and visiting undergraduates of suitable alternative course options. Current JHU students should consult their academic adviser.
No refunds are permitted for course textbooks or other class-related materials.
Johns Hopkins University assumes no responsibility for failure to provide services indicated or implied in the program or agreements due to force majeure. In the context of the summer enrollment in college, pre-college, residential and commuter programs, force majeure will mean fire, flood, earthquake, natural disasters of any sort, litigation, strikes, work stoppage, electrical power failure, labor unrest, riots, civil disturbances, war, terrorism, epidemics, power of government, or any cause like or unlike stated above, which is beyond the reasonable control of the university.
