    Costs

    Additional Costs

    Application

    Students interested in the pre-licensuremaster’s, and post-degree certificate options must pay a $75 fee when submitting an application for admission. The doctoral fee is $100.

    Deposit

    non-refundable $500 deposit is required of all students accepted for admission. The deposit will be credited to the student’s account. MasterCard and Visa are accepted.

    Matriculation

    A fee of $500 is payable on or before the date that a student enters the School of Nursing as a regular matriculated degree candidate. Special students who later become degree candidates will be assessed the matriculation fee at that time.

    Self-Service Internet Student Information System

    Johns Hopkins University offers students online student account information through Student Billing Self-Service (ISIS). ISIS allows students to view their account, make online payments, and update information related to their student account. 

    ISIS is also the official means of generating tuition bills to School of Nursing students. Paper bills will no longer be mailed to enrolled students. New students receive a one-time paper bill and instructions to activate their ISIS self-service account. The self-service system will automatically send an email notification to the student’s school email address when a new bill is ready to be viewed online. Start using ISIS

    Student Health Insurance

    All matriculated students must be covered by a current health insurance plan. The University provides information about its student health insurance plan for students who are not covered under another plan. Students who do not purchase the University insurance must provide proof of enrollment in a comparable plan each semester. All full-time matriculated students will pay a $450 annual health services fee and have unrestricted access to all services at University Health Services.

    Part-time students may pay $450 per year to access these services.

    Supplies

    Pre-licensure students must purchase a number of supplies including uniforms, a stethoscope, and an aneroid, adult-size blood pressure cuff. Students enrolled in nurse practitioner options should expect to purchase some diagnostic equipment during the first year.

    Late Registration

    Students who for any reason do not complete registration until after the prescribed registration period are required to pay a $50 late-registration service fee before being finalized by the registrar. Information about what constitutes late registration and the applicable fee is included in registration materials distributed by the Registrar’s Office.

    Late Fees

    The University assesses a 1.50% per month late fee charge on the unpaid balance for any student whose account is in arrears. Students who have unpaid balances from a previous semester will not be allowed to register for subsequent semesters. Fees associated with delinquent accounts sent to collections will be passed on to the student.

    Transcripts/Diplomas

    There is no charge for transcripts. No transcript will be released if the student has an unpaid account balance. Diplomas will not be released to students with unpaid student account balances.
