The Office of Student Accounts will bill the student the cost of their program and a study abroad fee. If housing costs are a part of the program, they will be billed to the student’s account. If the student participates in the student health insurance plan, this will also be billed. Students will pay the university directly. JHU will make direct payments to the study abroad program for the program fee and housing fees (if applicable). Students are responsible for additional costs, including housing, airfare, personal expenses, meals, travel, and other incidental expenses. Click here to learn more.

Financial aid

The Office of Student Financial Services will modify a student’s cost of attendance based on the financial aid budget provided to us by the Office of Study Abroad for the semester the student is abroad. Johns Hopkins University grant assistance will be based on the adjusted cost of the study abroad program. If the cost of the program is lower than that of Johns Hopkins University the university grant assistance will be reduced. Johns Hopkins University grant assistance will not be modified if the cost of the study abroad program is greater than that of Johns Hopkins University. Only loan assistance is available to cover additional expenses. All financial aid (excluding Federal Work-Study and JHU Non-Federal Work Study) may be applied toward the cost of your program.

Financial aid will be credited to the student’s account. Students with a credit balance may request a refund online. Refund requests cannot be processed any earlier than 10 days prior to the first day of classes at Johns Hopkins University. If the study abroad program has a different start date, you should make financial plans accordingly.
