How to Apply

New application information will be available in August of each year. Apply online at https://app.applyyourself.com/?id=jhu-grad. The deadline for receipt of applications and with all supporting materials is December 31st.

Tuition and Financial Aid

The department admits very few graduate students, usually only five or six per year, but financial support in the form of research assistantships and teaching assistantships is offered to all admitted students. The financial support includes the full cost of tuition, the matriculation fee, student health insurance, plus a research or teaching assistantship with an academic yearly salary of $22,000. The department reviews graduate salaries periodically in order to keep them competitive with other major institutions.

Unfortunately, though, our financial support does not cover some expenses that a student may incur upon their arrival, including rent and other living expenses until they receive their first paycheck. Additionally, international students are ineligible for federal financial aid.
