How to Apply

Johns Hopkins welcomes applications from international undergraduate students interested in taking courses at Hopkins for a semester or academic year as study abroad (non-degree) students. You must be at least 18 years of age and demonstrate proficiency in English to apply. Students admitted to study abroad at Hopkins may not transfer into an undergraduate degree program.


You must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 or the equivalent.

If you have been speaking English for fewer than five years, you should submit the results of a TOEFL exam with a minimum score of 600 on the written test or a minimum sub-score of 26 (Reading), 26 (Listening), 25 (Speaking), and 22(Writing) on the Internet-based test (iBT). If you do not meet these language requirements, you may be asked to take preparatory English as a Second Language (ESL) courses in the summer prior to your admission.
