For the upcoming academic year (2008-09), the requirement is $252,000 USD.? This amount is non-negotiable and can be satisfied with cash or a non-negotiable, irrevocable Letter of Credit (LOC) in the name of the Johns Hopkins University.? Another option to satisfy this obligation is to remit a combination of cash and LOC.? At any rate, an acceptable arrangement is required by July 1st of the year the student plans to matriculate in order to secure the enrollment slot. Some flexibility is allowed provided good faith negotiations are occurring by July 1st.?
If the decision is to deposit cash with the University,?the funds will be?posted to?an exclusive?foreign student escrow account (in the student's name) and?will be invested in the University?s temporary investment pool.? The earnings are distributed quarterly and can be used as additional support for your educational and living expenses.? The current rate of return is 2.2%; however, it fluctuates regularly based upon internal and/or external economic factors.
Please note that?the School of Medicine?respects the fact that these?funds, although on account with the University, belong to the student. The student will be able to make withdrawals at any time provided funds are available and? the annual?threshold (1/4 of the total initial deposit) in a given academic year has not been exceeded. Accounting summaries (in Excel format) detailing all escrow account activity are provided quarterly and sent to the student?s University email account.? To withdraw funds from the escrow account, the Office of Financial Affairs requires the completion of a ?Request for Disbursement? form which is available in the office.? Tuition and fee payments are processed electronically via the University?s Internet Student Information System ? Student Billing System (ISIS-SBS).? Instructions for accessing your University student account via the internet (https://isis.jhu.edu/sswf/)?are included with?the student?s registration materials.?
