Tuition and Financial Aid | Summer Programs

We understand that attending graduate school is a serious financial commitment. However, we strongly believe that attending Johns Hopkins SAIS is one of the most valuable investments you can make towards your future.

Summer Term 2021 

Summer Course (4-credits): $4,900

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:

Students must have an enrollment status of at least "Half-time" in order to qualify for financial aid.

  • For fall & spring terms this equals 8 credits (generally the equivalent of 2 classes)
  • For summer term this equals 4 credits (generally the equivalent of 1 class)


Tuition is refundable only when the student submits an Add/Drop form to the Office of Summer Programs during the Add/Drop period. Please note that the application fee and 10% deposit on tuition are non-refundable. Refund amounts will be determined by the date and time the form is submitted.
