Types of Aid

Financial assistance and support

There are two main types of aid you may receive within your financial aid package: grants and scholarships, and work opportunities. Beginning in spring 2019, student loans will no longer be included in need-based financial aid packages. Students may choose to borrow as part of their family’s strategy to cover college costs. Eligible parents may borrow federal parent loans by request. JHU also offers payment plans through the Office of Student Accounts.

Grants and Scholarships
Grants and scholarships are financial aid awards that do not have to be paid back. They may be need and/or merit-based. Johns Hopkins offers a variety of grants and scholarships to support our students and their families as a part of your financial aid package.
Work Opportunities
Work opportunities include part-time jobs that allow students to earn money for educational expenses during the school year. Students may work on or off campus. Most students work between 10-15 hours per week while classes are in session.
Optional Student and Parent Loans
Low interest federal loans are available to students and parents to help pay for educational expenses.
Monthly Payment Plan
Parents are able to budget the cost of tuition and on-campus room and meals in five equal monthly installments per semester. There is an application fee of $55 to participate in the plan, but no interest or other fees. Interested families should contact Tuition Management Systems at 800-722-4867 or the Office of Student Accounts at 410-516-8158 for information.
