Financial Aid at the Carey Business School

Financial aid at the Carey Business School refers to a broad range of scholarship, grant, and loan programs. When students apply for financial aid, they are generally applying for all of the potential programs for which they might be eligible. Based on the eligibility guidelines for each program, available funding, and the student's own financial resources, students will be offered one or more types of aid. Keep in mind that financial aid is supposed to supplement each student's own financial resources. The basic premise behind financial aid is that students (and their families where applicable) are responsible for paying for college costs to the extent that they are able.

Tuition Payments and Penalties

Students with approved financial aid should elect to be electronically billed and will be responsible for any charges not covered by their award. Students enrolled in a Carey program should see Schedule A for billing periods and payment due date. A late payment fee of $250 will be assessed if payment is not received by the due date. Students who choose the option of using the monthly payment plan may use Schedule B as a payment guide.

Students with outstanding balances will be prohibited from registering and receiving any services for future courses until the balance is paid in full. Payments from students seeking to register may be kept and applied against prior obligations to the university. Delinquent accounts turned over to our collection agency will be assessed an additional 25% of the outstanding debt.

Refunds

 

Tuition refund from dropped or cancelled courses:

Students who become eligible to receive a refund as a result of a dropped or cancelled course will be refunded according to the original method payment. Please allow four to six weeks to receive your refund. All fees are non-refundable unless a course is cancelled and this is the only course for which you are registered.

Students who paid their tuition by Wire Transfer or Western Union will be refunded in the form of a check, unless otherwise requested.

JHU employees who used their Tuition Remission benefits and drop a course will have the remission benefit 100% reversed. Tuition Remission does not cover tuition costs from courses not completed. Please see the Benefits Office website for more information.

Financial Aid Refund:

Once all tuition and fees have been covered by financial aid, students are eligible to receive a refund of the excess aid that remains on their account. If you do not wish to receive a refund, please complete the Authorization to Retain Title IV Funds form and email it to the Office of Financial Aid at carey.finaid@jhu.edu. Otherwise, the credit balance will be sent to Higher One and refunded to you according to your chosen preference.

Expect to receive an enrollment packet from Higher One via U.S. mail. If your address is not within the confines of the U.S., you will not receive a packet. All students, please be sure to review and update your address in ISIS. This can be done by logging into ISIS self-service. The enrollment packet will contain an inactive debit card. PLEASE DO NOT DESTROY IT, as you will need it to access Higher One's website, http://www.myonemoney.com, to select your refund preference. Your options for receiving refunds include:

  • Direct deposit of your refund proceeds directly into your existing personal checking account at a U.S. Bank. There are no Higher One fees associated with this option and it is the most popular option amongst Johns Hopkins students and the second most expedient process for receiving your refund.
  • Receive your refund in the form of a check issued by Higher One. There are no Higher One fees for this option and no waiting period if you select this as your preferred refund method.
  • Open a Higher One account. This is the most expedient option relative to receiving your refund and certain fees are assessed as detailed on their website.

Please be advised that if you do not select a refund preference, your refund proceeds will still be transmitted to Higher One for disbursement to you. If this happens, Higher One will attempt to contact you for 21 days to select a preference or to confirm a mailing address to send your check. If Higher One is unable to contact you within that 21 day period, your refund proceeds will be returned to JHU, further delaying your refund. So, it is important that you take the action that best serves your need.

Please read the University-wide Disclosure Statement regarding the University's partnership with Higher One.

Americorps Stipend Refund

Once the stipend has been received by the University and posted to your student account, a refund will be requested after all tuition and fees have been covered in full. The credit balance will be sent to Higher One and refunded to you according to your chosen preference.
