Understanding Aid

If you are admitted, we will help make it affordable

We use your financial aid application to determine how much is reasonable for your family to pay, then pledge to provide aid for the remaining amount. Assistance comes in grants, scholarships, low-interest student loans, and work study opportunities. Grants and scholarships are primarily need-based, and there are some limited merit-based programs available as well.

Nearly a third of need-based aid packages at Hopkins do not include an expectation that students borrow.

Net Price Calculator

Use the JHU Net Price Calculator to get an estimate of what you’d pay to attend Johns Hopkins. Even if you are not looking to apply immediately, or even this year, it is still a good place to start understanding the cost of a college education. You can create “what if” scenarios based on expected family income and anticipated expenses, and start to plan and save well before applying to college.

If you have any questions about the Net Price Calculator, the Office of Student Financial Services at JHU is here to assist you. Contact our staff with any questions or concerns.
