In addition to paying all application fees, you will need to pay the summer deposit, the first payment of an approved installment plan (for financial aid applicants), or the full tuition payment before we process your application.
If you have an outstanding balance from a previous CTY program, any payments you make will be applied to it first—meaning it must be paid off before we can process your application. You can view and pay your current balance in MyCTY.
If you are interested in setting up an installment plan, after completing your application online, contact our Student Accounts department at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-393-6095, option 1 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. (Eastern time), Monday through Friday to discuss your payment options.
Accepted payment methods:
You can make payments online directly by using your bank account and routing numbers. Any subsequent payments using the same account can be made through MyCTY.
We accept credit card payments through Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. If you are enrolling in CTY using a paper application, it will include instructions for paying by card. Any subsequent payments using the same card can be made through MyCTY.
Check or money order
To pay by this method, you’ll need to include the check or money order with your completed application. Both the application and the payment should be sent to:
Johns Hopkins University
Center for Talented Youth
P.O. Box 64434
Baltimore, MD 21264-4434
