financial circumstances shouldn’t limit your potential

If your family demonstrates you can only pay part of college costs, or none at all, we cover the rest. Follow our step-by-step instructions to apply for need-based scholarships.

We want to make sure every admitted student can afford to come to Hopkins and fully participate in our community. Discover what this means for your family with our tools for estimating your college costs.


This tool uses questions similar to those on the CSS Profile to provide a more detailed estimate of your net price—the amount your family will be responsible for paying. You’ll need tax returns for your parents or legal guardians. Be as specific as you can to ensure the most accurate estimate.
