Financial aid appeal process

If financial circumstances are affecting your ability to attend Johns Hopkins, we would like to have the opportunity to reconsider your eligibility for financial aid. Our goal is to offer you the best possible financial aid package based on your family’s current financial situation within the parameters of existing policies, federal regulations and the availability of funds.

An increase in aid is most often the result of financial circumstances that have changed or that we did not know about at the time of your original application. Examples include loss of income, unexpected medical expenses not covered by insurance, and other unusual life events that affect your family’s ability to pay for college.

Contact an aid adviser for further assistance.
