Admission & Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy:

Information regarding an application will only be released to the applicant.

Application Policy:

Accuracy is expected in all documents provided by applicants to any graduate program. Applicants admission must not make inaccurate statements or material omissions on their applications, nor submit any false materials related to or in connection with seeking admission. Violation of this requirement may result in the application being rejected.
It is, therefore, the policy of the Krieger and Whiting schools to verify all documents and credentials in support of an application. Letters of recommendation, transcripts, publications (samples of work), test scores, and supplemental documents may be traced back to their origin in order to establish authenticity. Documents uploaded into the online application are verified through TurnItIn For Admissions.
If a violation is discovered after an applicant has been admitted but prior to matriculation, admission may be rescinded. All applicants may also be subject to a background check. If a violation is discovered after a full-time graduate student has registered, the case will be reviewed by the Vice Dean of Graduate Education for the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences or the Vice Dean of Education for the Whiting School of Engineering, who will determine what action is to be taken, up to and including dismissal from the University. If the discovery occurs after a degree has been awarded, the University may revoke the degree and/or take other appropriate action.
Applications and supporting documents for graduate admissions to The Johns Hopkins University Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering become the property of the University. The University does not return documents to applicants, nor does it forward documents to third parties. Applicants who anticipate a need for documents submitted to the University are advised to retain photocopies or to obtain duplicate copies.

Admission Decisions

Applicant files are maintained by academic departments, and admission decisions are made by departmental faculty committees. Each department, therefore, will notify applicants when decisions are made. Inquiries regarding the status of an application should be directed to the appropriate department.

Note: Johns Hopkins University is a participant in the Council of Graduate School’s Resolution Regarding Graduate Scholars, Fellows,Trainees and Assistants.
