Financial Aid

Financial Aid is only available to certificate students. US citizens or eligible non-citizens may receive Federal Student Aid. Students will need to apply for the FAFSA and meet the following criteria: Certificate students must have an enrollment status of at least "Half-time" in order to qualify for financial aid.

  • For fall & spring terms this equals eight credits (generally the equivalent of two classes)
  • For summer term this equals four credits (generally the equivalent of one class)

Student Services Fee

Accelerated certificate students must pay a prorated student services fee for the semester that they are enrolled. Students then gain access to all of the same amenities of a degree student including career coaching, skills courses, career treks, and access to Handshake, the online job search portal for Hopkins students.
