COVID-19: Due to the continued effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic, Engineering Innovation will be offering online courses only in 2021. We look forward to resuming our residential and commuter programs in 2022.

FAQs – Enrolled Students

General Information

  • After you are enrolled in one of our courses, a bill will be generated by JHU Student Accounts.  You will use your JHED ID to log into JHU SIS to access your bill.

    See the JHED Online Student Account section below for more information about setting up your account.

    Please note that the Engineering Innovation office does not handle billing; tuition and fees are added by Student Accounts once notified by EI that a student has enrolled.

  • Students are expected to treat online class discussions and interactions as if attending class on campus, which includes behaving professionally, treating others with courtesy and respect, refraining from using profanity or socially offensive language as well as wearing appropriate clothing and avoiding inappropriate surroundings.

    In all of your online interactions, we expect you to behave with appropriate decorum and maturity, to treat others with dignity and respect, and to avoid language and behavior that could be construed as denigrating, bullying, shaming, and the like.

  • Please note: there is a maximum of two (2) excused absences in this course to obtain and A or B.

    Students are required to attend scheduled classes and labs in order to qualify for college credit. However, should it be necessary for a student to be absent during the course, a written request must be made by his or her parent and/or legal guardian, followed by a discussion with the course instructor, as soon as possible.

    If the request is approved, the instructor will work with the student to develop a plan to help the student complete the missed course work. It will not always be possible to make-up lab activities. It is up to the discretion of the instructor and the Engineering Innovation Director to approve absences.

  • Procedures for Dealing with Issues of Academic Misconduct FORM

     What this Policy Covers

    Students enrolled in the Whiting School of Engineering, Engineering Innovation Summer Program assume a duty to conduct themselves in a manner appropriate to the Johns Hopkins University’s mission as an institution of higher learning. Students are obligated to refrain from acts which violate the academic integrity of the University. Violations of academic ethics include, but are not limited to: cheating, plagiarism, submitting the same or substantially similar work to satisfy the requirements of more than one course without permission, submitting as one’s own the same or substantially similar work of another, knowingly furnishing false information to any agent of the University for inclusion in academic record, falsification, forgery, alteration, destruction or misuse of official University documents or seal.

    • Procedures for Dealing with Cases of Academic Misconduct

    If a student is suspected of a possible violation of academic ethics, the instructor in charge of the course shall review the evidence and the facts of the case. If the instructor believes that a violation of academic ethics has occurred, the instructor will report the case to the Engineering Innovation Director. The Director will notify each student who has committed a violation, in writing, to the offense and the penalty. The student may either accept the penalty or appeal in writing within fourteen (14) days. The appeal should outline the offense and reasons that the penalty is not just. The appeal should be addressed to the Vice Dean of Engineering Education who will make a final decision based on the appeal.

    • Potential Penalties
      • Retake of the examination, paper or exercise involved.
      • Score of zero on the examination, paper or exercise involved.
      • Lowering of the course grade
      • Failure of the course.
      • Failure of the course with a notation on the transcript that the grade was for a violation of academic ethics.

    • Be respectful and reach out to a teacher if you believe someone is behaving inappropriately. Recall that you are bound by the Academic Integrity Policy for the duration of this course.
    • While we encourage you to collaborate with your fellow students, all work submitted must be fully your own. Lab reports, assignments, quizzes, and projects must be done on your own. Direct copying of written work or computer code is considered cheating and will result in a grade of zero on the assignment and could result in failing the course.
    • Plagarism is defined as taking the words, ideas, or thoughts of another and representing them as one’s own. If you use the ideas of another, provide a complete citation of the source work; if you use the words of another, present the words in the correct quotation notation (indentation or enclosed quotation marks, as appropriate) and include a complete citation to the source.
  • Students enrolling in a Johns Hopkins University in-person summer course, including Engineering Innovation, must have health insurance, issued by a provider headquartered in the United States. Traveler’s insurance does not meet this requirement. A parent or guardian may not waive or permit students to attend without health insurance that is U.S. based. Documentation of health insurance must be provided to the program before enrollment is confirmed.

    International students must also meet this U.S. based health insurance requirement.  For students who cannot document satisfactory coverage, details of a temporary, summer-only plan is available through IMGlobal Gateway Patriot Exchange Program.  Please see this PDF flyer for details regarding costs, dates of coverage, and how to purchase the policy.

    Students taking an online course do NOT need to provide proof of health insurance.

    See the separate FAQs – Health Insurance for more details.

    The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA)

    The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), is a federal law that establishes certain rights and protections for students concerning the privacy of student education records maintained by a postsecondary institution. Under FERPA, a student’s written authorization is required before JHU may disclose personally identifiable information from that student’s education records, except to the extent that a FERPA exception permitting disclosure without authorization applies.

    Please Note: FERPA permits JHU to disclose “Directory Information” to third parties, unless the student has opted out. Some examples of “Directory Information” are: name, email, phone number, home address and parents’ names.

    Further information on FERPA is available here. FERPA permits a student to opt-out by requesting that JHU not release Directory Information about that student to third parties. This request may be made by completing the “Request to Prevent Disclosure of Directory Information” form, located here and sending the form to:

    JHU Engineering Innovation, Shaffer Hall 103, 3400 N. Charles Street, Baltimore MD 21218.

    Until this form is submitted, Directory Information may be disclosed to third parties at JHU’s discretion.

  • See the separate FAQs – Student Disability Services for more details.
