From the School

The Johns Hopkins undergraduate experience is all about exploration and discovery, for all students in every major.

Johns Hopkins University is a place where ambitious, talented, and creative students thrive. Here, students in all majors embrace a spirit of learning through exploration and discovery. We offer students the freedom to pursue their intellectual passions, the opportunity to learn from academic leaders, and the chance to make an impact right away. With no core curriculum, students are able-and encouraged-to build the academic path that is right for them, with guidance from staff and administrators to help them find their way. Our students can combine their interests-academic and otherwise-in ways that are meaningful to them, and often discover new passions while they’re here. Double majoring and majoring or taking classes across disciplines are common practices; in addition, over 97% of students have at least one career-related experience as undergraduates. Studying abroad is also a common option. Outside of the classroom, students are active and engaged on a lively campus, involved in activities from dance or singing groups to international service organizations. The admissions committee approaches applications from a holistic perspective, evaluating the 'whole student.' In addition to looking at a student's academic achievement and intellectual curiosity, we seek to admit students who are excited about learning and living at Johns Hopkins. We look for students who will bring something to the campus community while taking advantage of all Johns Hopkins has to offer.

Overall

From The School

The University looks for students who will take advantage of the resources and support a Johns Hopkins education offers, and who are eager to contribute to the campus community. A student's intellectual interests and accomplishments are of primary importance, and the admissions committee carefully examines each applicant's academic record, standardized test results, essays, extracurricular involvement, and recommendations from secondary school officials. However, the student's character, intellectual curiosity, and seriousness of purpose play the most significant role in application review. Each year we review more than 20,000 applications, from which we select a freshman class of around 1,300. Also each year, we welcome transfer students from other colleges and universities. Transfer students apply for entrance during their sophomore or junior years. Each application we receive represents an individual, and the admissions committee considers each one individually during a holistic review process. High school students should complete and submit applications by January 1 (by November 1 for Early Decision). We accept both the Common Application and the Universal College Application; both require a supplement, including a supplemental essay. To apply, complete either application and the Johns Hopkins supplement and submit them as soon as possible, but no later than the deadline, with your $70 nonrefundable application fee. Essays and two teacher recommendations are also required parts of the application. Visit http://apply.jhu.edu/apply/ for detailed information about the application process.

Standardized Test Requirements
Applicants must submit scores from all SAT tests, including Subject Tests, or ACT tests taken. For freshmen, the SAT Reasoning Test or the ACT with Writing Test are required. For those submitting SAT scores, Johns Hopkins strongly encourages submitting SAT Subject Test scores, and if submitted, requests results from three tests. For transfer students, SAT Reasoning Test scores are optional; SAT Subject Tests are not required. For international students, the TOEFL is required of applicants who do not speak English at home AND have not attended an English-language school for five years or longer. All other international applicants are not required to submit TOEFL scores but may do so to supplement their application. Applicants should score a minimum of 600 (written test) or 250 (computer test). Applicants taking the Internet-based TOEFL (iBT) should have minimum sub-scores of 26 (Reading), 26 (Listening), 22 (Writing), and 25 (Speaking). A Critical Reading SAT score of 670 or higher waives for the TOEFL requirement for all students.

Academic Programs

At Johns Hopkins, research is engrained in our culture. Academic boundaries are not. From traditional labs and libraries to museums or field work, research here is not about a single project. It's about encouraging our students to think of new and exciting ways to delve into the subjects that matter most to them. They'll find a supportive network of professors and administrators dedicated to helping them get their projects started, including several generous research funding opportunities, such as the Provost's Undergraduate Research Awards and the Woodrow Wilson Undergraduate Research Fellowships. Because there's no core curriculum here, students can take advantage of fluid academic boundaries to take classes that are interesting and engaging. Allowing students to explore their academic interests results in a more stimulating learning environment, one that is enriched by students who truly enjoy learning and sharing their unique perspectives. Classes are small here, and the resources are big. That means as an undergraduate, you get to know your professors and classmates the way you would at a small liberal arts college, but you have all of the opportunities of a global research institution, right at your fingertips. Many students complete independent projects with professors, mentors, and teams. Lots more take advantage of study abroad, internships, semesters in Washington, D.C., and advanced graduate study. Johns Hopkins has schools, centers, and affiliates all over the Baltimore area-and they are often linked by free shuttle bus—in Washington, D.C., across the country, and around the world. Cross registration, independent projects, and internships are all encouraged options. Instead of a rigid core of compulsory courses, Johns Hopkins leaves you free to concentrate on what you love, or to explore more broadly. Academic and faculty advisers, career advisers, and pre-professional advisers help you chart the waters.

Students Say

Johns Hopkins University has a reputation as an academic powerhouse, one that its undergrads wholeheartedly affirm. Although the university offers “a pretty intense environment” with “really rigorous” classes, all of this is made bearable by professors who are “concerned with the individual student” and “extremely approachable, even in [an] organic chemistry class of 300 students.” Indeed, “they enjoy being in the classroom and sharing what they know. Each is passionate about their area of study and eager to share it with students who are equally as enthusiastic.” A satisfied senior echoes these praises, saying, “All the professors that I’ve encountered at Hopkins recognize that learning should be fun and thought-provoking. Their lectures or discussions engage students to think about the materials in a different way and pursue further outside study.” “Engage” is the operative word here, as undergrads are “treated as though they are participants in their respective academic fields, not just ’students’.” However, as one senior cautions, “There’s very little grade inflation, and you work hard for the grade you get.” Praise also extends to the administration, which students describe as “caring to a fault, willing to help, and generally highly interested in the undergraduate experience.” As one junior sums up, “It’s clear that our professors and deans genuinely care about the students, as evidenced by their attendance at student fundraisers, fraternity scholarship events, and even plays and a cappella concerts. They want students to learn about anything that interests them, but they want students to grow as people too, and it’s astonishing how high their success rate is in that regard.”

Financial Aid

Johns Hopkins is dedicated to enrolling the strongest students each year, and it's our goal to help students able to make their college decision without being limited by their family financial circumstances. We are committed to meeting 100% of demonstrated financial need for our students for all four years of undergraduate study. . We award more than $70 million in need-based Johns Hopkins grants to undergraduates each year, with an average freshman grant of more than $35,000. Both Kiplinger's Personal Finance and Princeton Review have named Hopkins a "best value" college among private universities. Johns Hopkins values every single student, and we support all aspects of their academic careers. In addition to an academic adviser, each student-even those who did not apply for aid-is given a financial aid adviser to explain financing options. Whether families need a better understanding of their student's aid package, would like to investigate the monthly payment plan, or want to talk through the pros and cons of the different loans, the Office of Student Financial Services is available to help all families understand and explore their options.

Overall

From The School

Homewood is an active, engaged campus where students are rounding out their academic pursuits with all kinds of activities, interests, and events. There are over 300 student groups and organizations on campus. All Johns Hopkins student groups are governed and managed by students, and there is something for everybody, from theater and performing arts groups, to political, special interest, and cultural groups, to publications, student government, and religious groups. Published since 1896, the News-Letter is one of the oldest student papers in the country. In 124 years of competition, the men's lacrosse team has won 44 national championships, including the 2005 and 2007 NCAA Division I National Championship, and twice represented the United States in the Olympic Games. For the past 10 years, the women's lacrosse team has also competed in Division I. Outside of lacrosse, one out of six Johns Hopkins students participates in one of our twenty Division III teams or club athletics, and more than half participate in the popular intramural program. Campus life extends to the city of Baltimore, our hometown, where students can explore concert venues large and small; a number of art galleries, theaters, and museums; and countless dining options. Many students come to adopt Baltimore as their hometown.

Students Say

While it might be difficult to define the typical Hopkins undergrad, the vast majority are “hardworking and care about their GPAs, and will do what they can to get the grades they want.” Thankfully, many are also “balance artists; they are able to balance schoolwork, extracurricular activities, jobs, and a social life without getting too bogged down or stressed.” Though students “are competitive in the sense that they all want to do well,” that competitiveness is never adversarial. One junior declares, “I have found that there is an incredible mutual respect that permeates the student body, one that allows engineers to discuss poetry with English majors, sees historians present at astronomy lectures, and gets linguists to help lacrosse players study for French tests, all while reserving judgment upon each other.” A sophomore continues, “I’ve never been someplace where there are so many diverse interests. As clichéd as it may sound, there truly is a niche for everyone.”

Overview

From The School


Location

The Homewood campus features wide, green, inviting spaces in the heart of a bustling city; impressive Georgian brick and white marble; and winding paths through gorgeous landscaping. According to one student, Homewood "has got to be the most beautiful college campus in the country." While authorities may differ on which is the best view, they all agree that it's a great place to call home. Johns Hopkins is an active and supportive community, filled with students of different viewpoints, different cultures, and different backgrounds. The thing that brings them all together is their desire to be here and to celebrate everything this place has to offer. There's always something going on--and freshmen are encouraged to get involved. Every week offers lectures, concerts, art and photography exhibitions, theater, movies, volunteer opportunities, and whatever else anybody has an idea to do. You'll never run out of things to try.

Campus Facilities & Equipment

Hopkins students dive into their lives outside of the classroom with the same enthusiasm and energy with which they approach their academic pursuits. Student life is centered around the 140 acres of the Homewood campus. A park-like setting within the city of Baltimore, our campus has had many renovations in recent years and continues to grow with exciting additions for our students. Most recently, we've unveiled the Undergraduate Teaching Labs (UTL). The UTL, housed in a beautiful glass building, includes lab teaching space that facilitates cross-disciplinary collaboration. Another recent addition, the Brody Learning Commons, is an exciting addition to Homewood that has already been embraced by the student community as a place to gather, study, and collaborate. The building connects to the Milton S. Eisenhower Library and contains the latest learning technology, including TeamSpot, interactive projectors that allow student to write on walls, Lifecam cameras, and video teleconferencing capabilities, all to support collaborative work. The building, constructed with current student input, features ample natural light and has achieved LEED Silver certification. Another campus highlight is the Mattin Center, which offers space for student groups and artistic endeavors. The center features a theater, cafe, art studios, darkrooms, music practice rooms, dance studios, the Digital Media Center, multipurpose rooms, and meeting spaces. The Ralph S. O’Connor Recreation Center, open for use by all students, houses basketball and volleyball courts, a rock-climbing wall, a weight room, and fitness training and aerobics areas, as well as access to the Athletic Center's swimming facilities. Popular fitness classes include yoga, Pilates, kickboxing, step aerobics, spinning, West African dance, and sports conditioning. Charles Commons, a two-building residential complex, features suites with single rooms, kitchenettes, and in many cases, living rooms. The complex is also home to a number of student amenities and common areas. The renovated Gilman Hall, located in the heart of campus, is home to the humanities departments and also features the Hutzler Reading Room, or "the Hut," a popular spot for quiet study or group projects; a glass-ceilinged atrium; the Johns Hopkins Archaeological Museum, and a coffee bar. Our campus is also home to many academic resources, including the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Homewood Museum, a world-class archaeological collection, and the six-story Milton S. Eisenhower Library.

Surrounding the campus is Baltimore's vibrant Charles Village community, home to many shops, restaurants, some student housing, and the Barnes and Noble bookstore. Students can often be found here, grabbing lunch or coffee at sub shops or local spots; using services like banks and dry cleaners; and grocery shopping.

Off-Campus Opportunities

Baltimore, Maryland, is situated in the heart of the busy mid-Atlantic corridor, which puts Johns Hopkins within easy reach of Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and New York City--some of the East Coast's most exciting destinations. Johns Hopkins students have access to the opportunities, experiences, and fun throughout the region, all from a comfortable home base. According to our students, Baltimore has the best of both worlds: all the amenities of a major urban center--theater, museums, music, professional sports, all kinds of restaurants, and public transportation--plus the easy lifestyle and neighborliness of a smaller city. "Baltimore is an unpretentious kind of place," says one student. Baltimore may be unpretentious, but that doesn't mean it's unexciting. It's active and dynamic, with a full calendar of events. One of the city's biggest attractions is its famous Inner Harbor, widely recognized as a major accomplishment in urban renewal. The Harbor is home to the National Aquarium, the Maryland Science Center, the restored Civil War frigate U.S.S. Constellation, the Pier Six Concert Pavilion, and a variety of shops and restaurants--plus an enthusiastic but easygoing crowd enjoying life on the water. Baltimore is also a colorful place, and a bit quirky. Nicknamed "Charm City," it has a unique flavor and a character all its own. People are friendly and call each other "Hon!" Pink flamingos have been known to sprout up in rowhouse gardens. Bumper stickers from Bertha's Restaurant that read "EAT BERTHA'S MUSSELS" have been spotted as far away as Tibet. Residents take pride in their city, and they also take care to make everyone who comes here feel welcome.

Student Organizations & Activities

Homewood is an active, engaged campus where students are rounding out their academic pursuits with all kinds of activities, interests, and events. There are over 300 student groups and organizations on campus. All Johns Hopkins student groups are governed and managed by students, and there is something for everybody, from theater and performing arts groups, to political, special interest, and cultural groups, to publications, student government, and religious groups.

Many students come to adopt Baltimore as their hometown.

Students Say

Life at Hopkins is “certainly based around work.” Indeed, most undergrads are diligent students “who put work over everything else.” This is a school where “people care about what they study” and it’s not uncommon to see fellow students “stay up all night debating philosophy, politics or the theory of evolution.” Sound a little intense? No worries: One junior assures us that “there’s never a dull moment at Johns Hopkins: You just have to step outside your room and look for five seconds.” Another senior confirms, “There’s always something cool going on around campus, whether it’s from the world of entertainment (like Will Ferrell coming to speak) or academia.” There are numerous “free on-campus movies, plays, dance, and a cappella performances” to take in along with “the best lacrosse team in America” and “incredibly competitive [Division III] sports like soccer and water polo.” And with roughly a quarter of the student body involved in fraternities and sororities, Greek life offers a “tremendous social outlet.” Fortunately, when students get bored on campus, they can always explore hometown Baltimore for entertainment options. The city offers “movie theaters, malls, shopping centers, a ton of restaurants, a good music scene, and proximity to D.C., clubs, and other colleges. Many undergrads can frequently be found hanging out by the Inner Harbor or the nearby Towson Mall.

Sustainability

Lauded as one of the most exceptional research universities in the nation, it’s no surprise that Johns Hopkins University has found some innovative ways to improve campus sustainability. The student group, SHIP—the Sustainable Hopkins Infrastructure Program—has helped improve building and operational efficiency in projects ranging from rain gardens to updating all campus light poles to LEDs. The Office of Sustainability hosts Green Lead, a leadership development program for freshmen, designed to expose students to the context, concepts and connections they need to be effective change agents on campus and beyond. ECO-Reps are recruited each fall to represent residence halls, and help conduct peer outreach and activities within their respective housing facilities. In fall 2013, President Daniels made JHU the 19th signatory of the Real Food Pledge: a commitment to source 20 percent of campus food locally and sustainably. Markets on campus offer a variety local, organic, fair trade, gluten free, vegan and vegetarian, and all dining facilities on Homewood campus utilize recyclable or compostable take-out materials. The university has a community-supported agriculture program on two campuses that allow students to buy fresh food from local farmers, and the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future is the birthplace of the “Meatless Monday” campaign taking shape across campuses nationwide. Johns Hopkins can also lay claim to some other notable achievements, like having the largest rooftop solar PV installation in Baltimore City and one of the largest green roofs in Maryland. The university also has a LEED silver building standard, and is home to roughly nineteen buildings throughout the institution that meet or exceed these requirements.
