Our staff is dedicated to supporting students and families throughout the financial aid process.

Request Support through SEAM's Online Form

The Office of Student Enrollment and Account Management (SEAM) has developed an online form for you to submit requests for assistance with registration, financial aid, and student accounts. To get started, please submit your question or request using SEAM’s online form. This will enable our team to assign and answer requests more efficiently, by connecting you to the appropriate staff member who can best assist you. Once you complete the form, you will receive confirmation and a member of our team will be in touch.

If you are a current student, please choose the “Login with JHED” option to submit your inquiry.

If you are not yet a Hopkins student, or you are a family member contacting us on behalf of a student or applicant, please choose the “Continue as Guest” option to submit your inquiry.

Meet Your Adviser

All students are assigned a financial aid adviser based on their academic level and the first letters of their last name. Please see your academic level below.

Zoom Walk-In Hours

A flexible solution that will make it easier for newly-admitted regular decision students to meet one-on-on with a financial aid adviser to ask personalized questions about their financial aid package and the process. Newly-admitted undergraduate students can virtually walk-in via Zoom from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (EST), Monday and Tuesday and from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. (EST), Thursday.

Please click the “Walk-In Zoom” icon below for virtual advising with a financial aid adviser.

NOTE: In order to serve as many current and prospective students as we can, Zoom Walk-In Hours are limited to 10 minutes per student. Once you walk-in, you will enter a virtual waiting room. An adviser will meet with you in the order in which you have entered the Virtual Waiting Room. Due to high volume, wait times may be longer than usual.

Monday and Tuesday
1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (EST)
