Important Information and Policies

Attendance Policy

A certificate is awarded at the end of each course or certificate program, which indicates that you have participated and engaged in the course in its entirety. We understand that unforeseen commitments may arise, but we require that you not miss more than two hours of a 3-day session, one hour of a 2-day session, and require that you are present for the full length of a 1-day session.

Cancellation Policy

We understand that schedules change, and emergencies happen. If you need to cancel or transfer your attendance, please contact us at least one week prior to the start date of the course at Carey.ExecEd@jhu.edu.

Registrants who do not cancel or transfer within the given timeframe, or do not attend the course, will not receive a refund. If you are a JHU employee, your department budget will be charged the full cost of tuition. 

Please note that we require a 30-day cancellation or transfer notice for participants in the Health Care Leadership and Management program. 

Credit Card Refund Policy

Course cancellations must be received at least one week prior to the session start date. Payments made via credit card will be automatically refunded in 5-7 business days as long as the cancellation is made less than 120 days after the payment date. For credit card payments cancelled 120 days or more after the payment has been processed, please contact us directly at 410-234-9363.
