The COA consists of both direct costs (items that are directly billed to you), such as tuition and fees, as well as indirect costs (items that are not directly billed to you), including: books and supplies, travel expenses, personal expenses, loan fees, and room and board. The indirect portion of your COA is an estimate of the cost of living (room and board) for a student in alignment with federal guidelines. It is not an “accurate” assessment of your actual expenses. Each student’s COA will vary depending on program of study, dependency status, and enrolled credit load.
The cost of attendance for the upcoming 2017-18 academic year will be announced by the Johns Hopkins University Board of Trustees in spring 2017. The COA for 2016-17 can be used to help estimate the cost for the next academic year. The actual tuition costs will be posted to this website as soon as the information is available.
Along with tuition, detailed below, students are responsible for paying a $175 registration fee per semester for all programs (unless otherwise waived) and a $175 graduation fee upon program completion.

Along with direct costs (tuition and fees), indirect costs are also factored into a student's estimated COA. The approximate amount of living expenses is based on a community survey and consumer price index. The indirect costs, listed below, will vary based on individual situations, and are used to give students a general idea of the overall annual cost of their academic program.
