JHU Summer Programs Course Cancellation Policy

Courses that do not meet minimum enrollment requirements are subject to cancellation. Course enrollments are reviewed approximately four weeks prior to the start dates, and cancellations are generally made at that time. Program staff will make every effort to notify affected students of cancellations at least four weeks before the start of the course. However, Johns Hopkins University reserves the right to cancel courses at any time leading up to, and including, the first week of classes.
