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 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.
