Summer at Hopkins Refund Appeals Policy

 The Johns Hopkins University Summer and Intersession Programs adheres to a strict refund policy and all refunds will be issued in accordance with set guidelines. A student may only appeal the University summer or intersession refund policy for the following reasons:

  1. Illness, injury, or medical condition that prevents you from attending class.
  2. In rare cases, extreme unforeseen circumstances outside your control that would prevent you from attending class.

Please note that the initial payment for pre-college students or visiting undergraduates is non-refundable after May 15.

Appeals can be initiated by filling out the Summer/Intersession Programs Tuition Refund Appeals Form and submitting it to the Office of Summer and Intersession Programs. Students appealing for medical or injury reasons should include a note from a health professional explaining the medical situation. Appeals for other reasons should include any documentation that you may have to support your appeal. An Appeals Committee will review appeals.

Appeal Refund amounts, if awarded, will take into consideration the amount of time, if any, a student attends a given course. A student who attends at least one class meeting will receive a maximum 90% refund. Students who attend a course past the last day to withdraw will not be considered for a tuition refund appeal under any circumstance.

The Appeals Committee decision is final; there are no additional appeals processes.
