Admissions and Finances
Every year the Office of Undergraduate Admissions enrolls a freshman class of approximately 1,300 men and women from all over the United States and many countries. In addition to first-year students, transfer students are also welcomed each fall to the Homewood campus from other colleges and universities.
The Admissions Committee looks for students who will truly thrive as Johns Hopkins undergraduates. As part of a holistic review process, intellectual interests, academic performance and character, and personal contributions are important components of the application evaluation. A student’s intellectual curiosity, seriousness of purpose, and range of extracurricular activities and leadership are considered as well as scholastic record, aptitude test results, essays, and recommendations.
More information about the undergraduate admissions process can be found at apply.jhu.edu.
Johns Hopkins is dedicated to enrolling the strongest students each year, and it’s our goal to enable students to make their college decision without being limited by their family financial circumstances. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions and the Office of Student Financial Services are dedicated to meeting 100% of calculated financial need for all admitted students.
Financial aid advisers in the Office of Student Financial Services are always available to guide you through the process. Reach them at 410-516-8028 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
