Good news!We have several degree programs with open applications. We are busy processing materials. Our admissions review committees are busy reviewing those applications and materials.

BUT, in the meantime, over 200 of you have been admitted!

Congratulations!

We encourage you to take the next few weeks to learn more about our School, our city and your new resources. What’s the easiest way to do that?  Access the Admitted Student Website!

The Admitted Student Website has information about submitting final admissions documents, Admitted Student Visitors Days (register now!), online information sessions, Orientation, housing, transportation and more!

This website is available only to admitted students and a login is required. You should receive login information with your letter offering admission. If you don’t, email us and we’ll make sure you have access.

The Admitted Student Website is accessed from the Admissions landing page. Choose “login” in the blue Admitted box.

Let us know what you think!

Looking down East MonumentDo you know where in JHSPH you can see this view?

The scene beyond the window is East Monument Street and the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. East Monument Street is one of the major thoroughfares running through East Baltimore and the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions (JHMI). JHMI includes the Johns Hopkins Hospital, School of Medicine, School of Nursing and the Bloomberg School of Public Health.

If the photo were larger, you could make out the Matthew’s Johns Hopkins Medical Book Store on the corner of Wolfe and East Monument. Looking this direction from the sidewalk, you can see Baltimore’s Washington Monument, less than twelve blocks away.

East Baltimore may not be as green and lush as our Homewood campus housing Hopkins undergrads (among others). But there’s no denying we’re in the middle of things here – in regard to the city and amazing research.

SleuthI love a good mystery. Sherlock Holmes, Maisie Dobbs, Hercule Poirot are all dear friends of mine.  They’re also my competitors, because my favorite thing about mysteries is trying to solve the puzzle before the hero (or heroine).

So imagine the pleasure I get by solving this mystery for you. . .

I submitted all the required materials. I see them applied to my online application. My application is under review, so why is it still “incomplete?”

This seemingly contradictory notation generally appears in applications of those currently completing coursework or a degree. Your school likely sent us an “in progress” transcript showing your coursework to date.

While this “in progress” transcript is typically sufficient for our admissions review, it will not fulfill the University’s final transcript requirement.  If you are admitted and before you begin classes at the School of Public Health, you will need to provide an official final transcript showing your newly completed courses and the grades you earned.

As long as the individual requirements (letters of recommendation, test scores, transcripts, etc.) have been fulfilled and your application is under review, there is nothing more to do until you receive your decision.

One final, important note in the solving of this mystery: admitted students who do not provide final documentation may not be able to register for classes or receive federal funding.  

That sounds scary, but if you pay attention to communication from us, monitor your online application and follow this blog, it’s elementary!

Tidying UpIt’s a new year, which means it’s time to remind you of old policies.
