The Office of Summer and Intersession Programs manages the schedule for undergraduate Intersession courses. To learn more about Intersession course offerings and tuition charges for graduate students, please visit the specific division’s website.

Intersession Courses

Each January, academic departments representing the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering sponsor a diverse set of 1, 2, or 3-week undergraduate courses that are not typically offered during the academic year. Students who are interested may take one or two intersession courses, which are graded Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory.

There is no additional tuition for current degree-seeking undergraduates who have been registered full-time for the preceding Fall semester. Students who do not meet these criteria are charged tuition on a per-credit basis.

Students registering for two or more classes that meet simultaneously or overlapping times are not permitted. Once a time conflict occurs, students just take immediate action and resolve the conflict by dropping one of the courses. Questions regarding the availability of additional seats should be directed to the instructor(s) or department(s) offering the relevant course(s).

Intersession 2023 marks the sixteenth year of B’More, a one-week program designed for freshmen only to introduce them to Baltimore and help them establish a relationship that transcends their time at John’s Hopkins. B’More’s programming allows students to explore the ways in which the city’s civic and cultural resources can enhance a Johns Hopkins education.
