I already paid for EI Summer 2020; will that money be returned?
Yes. Tuition will be refunded to all students. If you also paid lunch, residential, and/or international fees, those funds will be returned, too. We anticipate that JHU Student Accounts will start to process refunds in the middle of April.
I will turn 18 before July 24, 2021; may I participate in EI Summer 2021 at a residential location?
Engineering Innovation is committed to following best practices regarding student safety and the protection of minor students participating in our program. Residential students are housed together and are supported by our Residential Services Contractor, Summer Discovery. At this time, we do not have appropriate residential accommodations for Engineering Innovation students who are 18 or older.
As we begin planning for Summer 2021, we will seek guidance to learn if there have been changes to policy or if there has been an expansion of residential opportunities that would allow us to safely house a student who is 18. You may contact us by email in early December to see if we are able to make allowances to this policy.
Will I need to apply again next year?
No. We can move your application from EI Summer 2020 to EI Summer 2021. We will ask for a new transcript showing grades through the fall of 2020 to update your application.
I am an international student who started the visa process already; will I be able to use this for EI Summer 2021?
The I-20 Request will need to be re-submitted. SEVIS records that were issued for 2020 will be cancelled by JHU Office of International Services. The SEVIS fee can be applied to the new SEVIS record in 2021.
The basic rules for moving a I-901 SEVIS Fee payment between SEVIS ID numbers are:
I already paid for EI; will that money be returned?
Yes. Fees paid towards EI Summer 2020 will be returned. We anticipate that JHU Student Accounts will start to process refunds in the middle of April.
I would like to take BMEI online this summer and defer enrollment to EI Summer 2021; how do I do that?
We are able to move your application from EI Summer 2020 to either BMEI or EI Summer 2021. If you wish to do both, we will move your application to BMEI, and you will need to apply again for EI Summer 2021. Please note, however, that there are separate costs for each program.
I would like to defer enrollment from EI Summer 2020 to EI Summer 2021, but I am not certain of my plans for next summer.
If you paid tuition and other fees already, they will be refunded starting in the middle of April. You can contact our office at any time through January 31, 2021, to request that we move your application to EI Summer 2021.
