Billing, Tuition, and Aid

Tuition and Fees

Students who have third-party payers  - outside organizations paying all or part of their tuition - must now log into SIS Self Service to upload documents and complete a brief acknowledgment form. This includes VA as well but does NOT apply to federal loans/grants. For more information, please visit: https://studentaffairs.jhu.edu/third-party

To help you in planning for the costs associated with your education, tuition charges, fees, and due dates for the upcoming academic year are outlined for each program. The budget amounts listed are determined by the Dean of Finance and approved by the Board of Trustees.  Please note that tuition is expected to increase between 3-6% each year.

Billing is by semester, and account statements are emailed the second Thursday of each month.  You must pay the term tuition and fees in full by the posted due date. Financial alerts will be added to your account after the due date restricting your ability to register.  A late fee of $200.00 may be applied to accounts with outstanding balances.  
 
SIS Self-Service allows students to view their bills, account history, make online payments, set up authorized payer access, and view 1098t documents (if applicable).  Paper bills will not be mailed to enrolled students. You may access the Self-Service website at https://sis.jhu.edu/sswf/Default.aspx.

How to pay tuition 

Please remember that if you received financial aid, only half of it can be used towards your fall tuition (the difference will be applied in the spring.
 
All fees payable to SAIS Europe should be in Euro. Those who wish to pay in U.S. dollars may do so by using the exchange rate on the date they make their payment (when converting dollars to euro internally, JHU uses a rate that is the www.oanda.com interbank rate plus 1%). The same method can be used when initiating a bank transfer to JHU. It is important to note that due to exchange rate fluctuations between the time a funds transfer is initiated and the time these funds are credited to JHU, the amount required to cover tuition may decrease or increase slightly. A reconciliation transaction will be made once the student arrives in Bologna, and the student will be notified in the event they have a small positive or negative balance. Questions regarding payments or exchange rates should be addressed to the SAIS Europe Business Office at: sais.eu.business@jhu.edu.

Click here for more information on the different payment methods.

In the case of tuition payments, if a transfer has not arrived before the deadline, you will need to provide proof of the incoming payment. A late payment fee of Euro 150 may be assessed if payment is received after the due date.
