Starting the Conversation

Catching a glimpse at the bigger picture

Finding the right financial fit for your family starts as a conversation. Hopkins is committed to helping all students make their college decision without being limited by family financial circumstances. We’re dedicated to helping students and their families afford a Hopkins education—meeting 100% of calculated need and offering a broad range of grants, no-loan financial packages, and other support. This means we use your financial aid application to determine how much is reasonable for your family to pay, then pledge to provide aid for the remaining amount.

"The financial aid opportunity that Hopkins gave me was much better than any of the state schools that I applied to. The financial assistance there wasn’t going to back me up as much as Hopkins is doing right now."
