Get an estimate of what you’ll pay to attend Johns Hopkins

We offer two resources to help your family estimate costs: the MyinTuition Quick College Cost Estimator and the Net Price Calculator.

These tools are a great place to start understanding the cost of a college education. You may need to gather a few documents such as taxes or pay stubs, as there will be questions about your parents’ financial situation, but it only takes about 20 minutes to complete. The idea of paying for college can seem overwhelming, but we are committed to meeting our students’ needs so they can focus on the opportunities available to them at Hopkins.

Estimate your college costs

It’s a good idea to run through this exercise with each school on your list. Because each school may have its own approach to financial aid, using this tool will help you get a sense of your financial options going into your college search process.

How Aid Works

Parental expectation

Many families use a combination of current income, savings, monthly payments, and long-term borrowing to provide for educational expenses. We are here to help support you and your family as you learn about eligibility for financial aid and explore payment options.

Student expectation

We assume that students will work during the summer and utilize savings to help pay some of their school expenses.

Your aid package

Once your eligibility for aid has been established, JHU offers a financial aid “package,” which may consist of different types of aid from various sources.
