Cost will vary depending on the type of room and meal plan. Commuting students' budgets are less than residential students' budgets. Some students will spend more than our estimates, and others will spend less. We use a standard budget for financial aid purposes to ensure equitable distribution of resources.
The budget includes
direct expenses for which Hopkins will bill you, such as tuition, fees,
and room and board for freshmen. Indirect expenses are also included as
part of the budget, however, you will not be billed directly by the University
for these expenses. Examples of indirect expenses are off-campus living
expenses, books, supplies, personal expenses, and travel. Students who
must obtain health insurance through the university should notify the
Office of Student Financial Services for assistance
with that expense.
