Initial Tuition Payment

Your Initial Payment of tuition is due within 10 days of submitting your Summer at Hopkins Offer Letter Response. You can submit your payment through the Summer at Hopkins post-admit portal and it will be applied directly towards the total cost.

JHED ID and Johns Hopkins Email

As a Summer at Hopkins student, you’ll be provided a Johns Hopkins online ID, often referred to as your JHED ID (pronounced “jed”), three business days after you submit your initial payment. Your JHED ID allows you to access JHU information technology systems, including the platforms you may need to use for your classes. Please look out for an email containing your JHED ID and activation instructions to your personal email address. You may want to check your spam/junk folder as well. For students who did not include a SSN, a Temporary Government ID will also be emailed to you in order to activate your JHED ID. Activating your JHED ID is a critical step to set up your official Johns Hopkins email address. We will begin sending communication to your Hopkins email address, so it is pertinent you access this account.

If you have any trouble activating your JHED ID or Hopkins Email, please contact the JHU IT Support Desk at 410-516-4357 at your earliest convenience for assistance. Read more about your JHED ID and Johns Hopkins email.

Course Registration

We cannot guarantee a spot in any program or course until the entire enrollment process is complete. To maximize your chances of getting into a popular offering before it fills, please complete your enrollment requirements as soon as possible.

Once you have submitted your enrollment decision form and your initial tuition payment, the Summer at Hopkins staff will register you in your course or program that you have indicated on the enrollment decision form.

Current JHU undergraduate students can register directly through the Student Information System (SIS). SIS is Johns Hopkins’ university-wide, web-based student information system.

Students may call the Student Enrollment and Account Management team with questions regarding their course registration at 877-419-5131 or use SEAM’s online form to request assistance.

Registration opens on March 7, 2023.

Additional Documentation

Medical Forms and Immunization Records

Students enrolled on-campus will use the JHU Student Health and Wellness Center Medical Portal to electronically submit their mandatory pre-entrance health forms and upload their immunization records. The portal will launch in March 2024.

To attend on-campus coursework, students must have the following:

  • T-DAP vaccine, after age 11*
  • 2 doses of MMR vaccine, given after age 1 and at least 28 days apart
  • Quantiferon Gold TB testing for international students from countries with elevated risk of TB (within 6 months of coming to campus, available in all countries)

*JHU Student Health and Wellness will provide a T-DAP clinic on the first morning of class at a cost of $120 for students who experience hardship due to their country of residence in getting the vaccination before arrival.

COVID-19 Policy Overview

Johns Hopkins University strongly encourages students to be fully vaccinated and have at least one COVID-19 booster prior to arrival. Students are not required to test prior to arrival but are strongly encouraged to test before traveling.

Disability Accommodation Request

Please see the  Student Support Resources page regarding documentation guidelines and visit the online portal to submit accommodation documents.


It’s your ID. It’s your library card. It’s your key. It’s your wallet. It’s your J-Card.

The J-Card gets you into residence halls, the library, academic buildings, and other campus facilities. It’s also as good as cash: You can store money on your J-Card and use it to do laundry, make copies, and buy food and other items on and off campus. You will receive your J-Card at move-in.

How to Upload Your Photo in Your MyJH Portal:

  • Login to your myJH.
  • Upon login, you will be prompted to upload a photo.
  • When taking or selecting your photo, please keep the following guidelines in mind:
    • Passport and graduation photos are ideal.
    • Choose a plain, indoor background, as outside shots do not reproduce well on the card.
    • Only the image of your head, neck, and shoulders will be printed on your J-Card, so if your head takes up too small a portion of the picture, it will be difficult to reproduce for your card.
    • Do not wear sunglasses, hats, or hairstyles obscuring your eyes.


Summer at Hopkins requires that all students participate in an online orientation prior to their program start date. Your orientation will be available starting March 10, 2023. We encourage you to complete the orientation at your earliest convenience to ensure you have submitted all required materials for your program.

The orientation will be accessible via Canvas. Please log in to Canvas after you have activated your JHED ID, then the Summer at Hopkins team will add you to the orientation course. Please note, you will only see the orientation course in Canvas once you have received a message at your official Hopkins email inviting you to join the course.

Your Summer at Hopkins course itself will appear in Canvas the Sunday evening prior to the program start date.

Balance Due

Whether you’re an online student or a residential student, you’ll need to remit your remaining balance five weeks prior to your course or program start date. Please contact the Student Accounts Office with payment inquiries.

Students may call the Student Enrollment and Account Management team with questions regarding their billing at 877-419-5131 or use SEAM’s online form to request assistance.

On-Campus Welcome Session

Students living in-residence will have a Welcome Session on the first night of their session. This required event will orient you to campus and cover important program expectations.
