Tuition and Fees
The $75 application fee is assessed upon submission of an application to any AAP program. It is not refundable.
Currently posted tuition rates are valid for the following terms: Summer 2020, Fall 2020, and Spring 2021.
Graduate Degrees Tuition Rates
Tuition is calculated on a per-course basis and rates vary based on your degree program of choice.
Certificate Programs Tuition Rates
Tuition is calculated on a per-course basis and rates vary based on your certificate of choice.
In addition to tuition, some courses will require field trip, laboratory, technology, and thesis fees. These fees, specified in the Course Schedule for each semester/term, are payable at the same time as the regular tuition charges and are non-refundable.
All fees for each course will be itemized on your statement and listed separately from tuition. If you receive financial assistance, please check with your sponsor regarding reimbursement of tuition and fees. Please note that all fees are non-refundable. Full course tuition is due at the time of registration. All other fees are payable as noted below.
All fully online and blended courses in AAP require an additional technology fee. This fee applies to all students registered in online classes, and it is not refundable.
Thesis Continuation Fee
Students who are in a thesis course and do not finish the thesis in the semester in which they enrolled for it must pay a continuation-of-enrollment fee of $500 for each subsequent semester/term until a final grade has been submitted. Students submit a registration form with payment to the Enrollment Office. This fee also allows students to continue using university facilities such as libraries, and the Johns Hopkins Enterprise Directory (JHED).
Continuous Enrollment Fee
All newly enrolled AAP students pursuing a master’s degree or graduate certificate must continuously enroll in their academic program during Fall and Spring semesters in order to maintain good standing and admission status. January intersession, May intensive and summer sessions are excluded from this requirement.
Continuous enrollment entitles students to advising services, career services, and use of the Johns Hopkins facilities, including library facilities. AAP students will still have a maximum of 5 years to complete all degree requirements applied toward graduation. Exemptions from the continuous enrollment policy will be granted only for documented medical emergencies, approved leave of absence, or military services.
Requests for the exemption to the policy should be made to firstname.lastname@example.org with supporting documentation. Those requesting an official Leave of Absence should complete the online Leave of Absence Request form. Students who are not continuously enrolled in courses will be charged a non-refundable fee of $75 for each term of non-credit enrollment.
Late Registration Fee
Registration is open for approximately two months prior to the start of a semester/term, offering several ways for students to register. Late registration starts the day after registration ends and requires a $150 fee. Check the Academic and Registration Calendar for late registration deadlines. Students registering late should check the Refund Schedule. Students who wish to register late can fax their registration to (202) 452-1970.
Every graduate needs to pay the graduation fee, regardless of whether or not they plan to attend the ceremony. The graduation fee is $100 and is payable upon receipt of a bill from the Student Accounts office. Student Accounts sends this bill in October to students who completed degree requirements during the summer term; in March to those who completed requirements in the Fall, and in April to Spring graduates.
Students may elect to withdraw from one or more course(s) for a variety of reasons. Refunds are made in accordance with the Refund Schedule.
