HOME: Hopkins Overnight Multicultural Experience

Sunday, September 25–Tuesday, September 27

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is proud to present HOME—an on-campus, overnight program connecting African American, Latino/Hispanic, Native American, and multiracial high school seniors to the clubs, organizations, and resources that bring together our multicultural community.

Notes About the Application

An application for HOME is required and SAT or ACT scores must be provided in order to be eligible for HOME. To apply, please fill out the application found here.

In addition to the online form, applicants must upload two additional documents in order for their application to be considered complete:

  • SAT/ACT scores
  • High school transcript

These items can be uploaded at the bottom of the application. Online applications and the required application materials noted above must be received by Friday, September 2, at 5:00 p.m. (Eastern).

If you are unable upload these documents by September 2, please send them via email to along with an explanation.

Each year, we aim to bring to campus a diverse group of students from different backgrounds and experiences. Due to limited space, this is a selective program and we cannot admit all of the qualified applicants who wish to attend. Participation in HOME is not an indication of any admissions decision and your application to Johns Hopkins will not be negatively impacted if you are unable to attend HOME. Don’t hesitate to contact us at the email address noted above if you have any questions.

Please do not make travel arrangements for the program until you have been contacted about your application status.


Students attending the HOME program are invited to stay overnight in a residence hall room with a current Johns Hopkins student host for the duration of the program. If you have any special requirements, please let us know on your registration form. If parents would like to visit campus or Baltimore and are staying overnight while students are attending HOME, they must arrange their own accommodations (see Information for Parents below).
