Investing in you
Pursuing an advanced degree is a fantastic way to take your education, research, and career to a higher level. With it comes a higher workload and, often, a higher financial need. We recognize this is an important, and significant, investment in your life. So, we are completely committed to doing all that we can to help you pursue your goals.
With more education comes a continuation of the commitment Johns Hopkins has for our students
Eligibility for Federal Financial Aid
Financial aid applicants must be accepted and enrolled at least half-time to be eligible for federal financial aid. At Hopkins, half-time status for graduate students is enrollment in at least 4.5 credits (two courses for most programs). Applicants must be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, or eligible non-citizen and registered with Selective Service (Males 18-25 years of age). Applicants must not be in default on a Federal Direct or Stafford Loan, Federal Perkins Loan, or owe a refund for a Federal Pell Grant or Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG) at any institution.
Students may apply for financial aid at any point before or during the academic year. You do not have to wait until classes begin to apply. For answers to many of your questions, please visit the Common Questions page.
