Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.97 Average Rating
It is rather expensive but considering the opportunities available and all that there is to do on and off campus, as well as the high quality of most of the classes it is worth the cost.
Alyssa from Grand Blanc, MI
College in general is not a cheap investment, and unfortunately, Hopkins is not an exception. But nevertheless, it is an important investment, and Hopkins is definitely a good place to put your money towards. The little fees you have to pay here and there after coming can be annoying at times (for lab manuals and goggles etc), but the resources and opportunities offered can’t be matched. If you want internships or jobs, Hopkins is the place to find them. There are so many informed staff (in the Career center, advising office, even your teachers) that can help you search and apply. The cost is high, but definitely worth it.
Caroline from Newton, MA
Expensive, but it's worth the experience you'll get when your here, and the prestige tied to the name when you graduate.
Student at Hopkins
Pretty expensive, but if you do well here it will open up incredible opportunities for you in the future. And the alumni network will be very valuable to you.
Alison from Berwyn, IL
The thing about Hopkins is that if they accept you there, you were chosen for a reason. Therefore, they WANT you to be there. The sticker price is $60,000, but in reality, not everyone pays the full price. They will provide you with scholarships, grants, and student loans that don't accrue interest while in school. You definitely get the bang for your buck, IF you use your resources wisely. Like I said, there are many upperclassmen who are willing to help, but you have to reach out to them. You can enjoy fancy-eating but if you do that too much, you'll be spending WAY more than you need to, on food.
Marysol from Dundalk, MD
Like a lot of colleges, Hopkins is expensive. Don't hesitate to apply for financial aid, though, because you might be surprised. Overall, the opportunities that a Hopkins education provides are worth the investment.
Katrina from Nampa, ID
An education at Johns Hopkins is not cheap. However, the school has a rightful reputation for meeting most financial need. Moreover, resources are readily available for finding alternative methods to finance one's tuition, including loans, grants, and scholarships.
KC from New York, NY
It's extremely expensive (you can go to a state school for as much as it costs to go here almost in 1 year) but the education and potential connections you can make, along with the Hopkins prestige, is probably worth it for the people and the types of jobs they would go into if they are planning on coming here in the first place. That's why I chose to attend versus going to University of Texas at Austin.

JHU is very expensive compared to graduate programs in my area. Although I'll rack up more student debt, I know JHU is worth every penny. I'm working with professors who currently work in the field I'm interested in, I have an excellent advisor relationship whether online or on campus, and I'm learning and retaining more information than any other academic program.
