Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many colleges have suspended or relaxed some admitted student requirements and extended decision and enrollment deposit deadlines. We recommend that you contact the colleges to which you have been accepted directly for the most updated and accurate information.

Johns Hopkins University, founded in 1876, is a private university. It is one of the smallest national research universities in terms of enrollment, giving undergraduates, including freshmen, access to equipment, resources, internships, research positions and the internationally recognized faculty. The school is committed to helping create new student organizations and activities. Undergraduate education is enhanced by the student's ability to take courses in other divisions of the university, including the Schools of Public Health, Medicine, Nursing, and International Studies, and the Peabody Conservatory of Music. Its 140-acre campus is located in a residential area of northern Baltimore.
