Revised Credit Union Loan Process

All JHH employees seeking credit union loans for SoN tuition should start at JHH's Human Resources office, not the credit union. The blue JHH tuition remission form that indicates SoN in the heading — not the white form — can be picked up at the JHH Human Resources office. All forms should include a supervisor's signature and should be turned into the JHH Human Resources office in 455 Phipps, along with a copy of your student bill online. The forms will be pre-approved at JHH HR within a week and the information will be forwarded to the SoN Student Accounts office. SoN will provide a second approval and forward the information to the credit union. The student will be contacted by the SoN Student Accounts office and instructed to proceed to the credit union to process the loan. Checks will be provided to the student immediately, made payable to JHU SoN, to use to pay the student's tuition. The deadline for submitting the forms to JHH HR for the fall semester is Sept. 30. For more information, contact SoN Student Accounts at 410-955-1243.
