Tuition and Fees

The Bloomberg School operates on academic terms, instead of semesters. 

  • a term is eight weeks (about half a typical semester) 

  • the traditional Academic Year is four terms (August to May) 

Full-time status requires registering for 12 or more credits per term. Registering for 11 or fewer credits per term is defined as part-time status. 

Scholarships are typically awarded by the academic departments. The Financial Aid Office provides assistance with federal and private loans and the Federal Work-Study Program. 

Tuition is assessed per term by the Office of Student Accounts & Business Services. Review the grid below to estimate the cost of your program

Student Accounts also has information regarding non-degree applicationspayment due dates and payment options.  



Tuition rates for the following academic year are reassessed and approved each spring.  It is anticipated that the 2023-24 tuition will be raised by 4%, pending Board of Trustees approval in March.

Need-Based Relocation Grant

Students who are admitted to PhD programs beginning in Fall 2023 or beyond at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) can apply to receive a $1500 need-based grant to offset the costs of relocating to be able to attend JHU. The application for the need-based relocation grant will be sent to applicants once they have been admitted to one of the PhD programs. These grants provide funding to a portion of incoming students who, without this money, may otherwise not be able to afford to relocate to JHU for their PhD program. This is not a merit-based grant.
