In addition to paying all application fees, you will need to pay the summer deposit, the first payment of an approved installment plan 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 

Accepted payment methods:  


Direct payments  

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 


Credit card  

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 


Late payments  

Tuition balances for all students registered in an summer On-Campus Programs course are due in full on April 8, 2024, unless you have an installment plan. After April 8, 2024, all balances are due upon receipt of your child’s course assignment. 

The following nonrefundable fees apply to missed deadlines or payment issues:

  • Late payment — $25 per invoice  

  • Returned check — $25 per check  



Refunds are available after withdrawing from a course or event, though exact policies differ by program. Refunds will always be issued by the same method you chose for payment. Electronic refunds may take up to five business days to process. Refunds for paper checks can take between two to four weeks.  


Withdrawals due to violations of our code of conduct are not eligible for a refund.
