The Student Accounts
Office is responsible for student billing. All bills are mailed to the
student's permanent address in July for the fall semester and December
for the spring semester. Payment is expected three weeks before the beginning
of classes. If you begin courses in the summer, payment is due at registration.
If your financial aid credits exceed your billed costs, you may request a refund of the credit balance to cover your living and other expenses. You can request a refund check from the Student Accounts Office in Garland, or complete an on-line refund request at http://jhu.edu/~studacct. Allow at least 710 days to receive your check.
If You Reduce Your Courseload
At the beginning of each term, the period up to the last date to add a class or drop a class with a 100 percent refund is considered the registration period. After that date, the Office of Student Financial Services will check students' enrollment for the term. Eligibility rules for Federal Direct Student Loans require students to be enrolled at least half-time as of that date. Credits for federal loan funds will be reversed if the student is not meeting the enrollment requirement.
If You Withdraw
Students who withdraw
during an academic term will receive a tuition refund based on the policy
specified in the university catalog. The financial aid award will be adjusted
based on the actual charges incurred during the semester based on the date of withdrawal and percentage of the term completed. Funds from federal
programs will be returned to the Department of Education.
