Application Procedures

Please review the eligibility requirements and appropriate filing dates before you begin the application process.

To Apply For Federal Aid (Loans And/Or The Work-Study Program)

  1. File the 2015-2016 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Enter the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health - Code E00234 for us to receive your FAFSA data.
  2. Complete the online Public Health Student Aid Application. The application is available to admitted students in our ISIS Self-Service system. This application requests information on your enrollment plans and the other sources of funding you expect to receive.
  3. If selected for verification by the U.S. Department of Education, you be required to submit additional information to our office. See Federal Verification below. Admitted students should review their ISIS Self-Service account to determine additional steps to complete their application. 

To Complete Your FAFSA

Before filling out your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online, you are encouraged to complete the FAFSA on the Web Worksheet. The worksheet allows you to read and complete questions before entering your information online.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) permits aid applicants to retrieve and transfer their income data using the IRS Data Retrieval process.  Applicants are strongly encouraged to use this process to ensure the accuracy of their data.

If you have not completed your 2014 federal income tax return, you can use estimated data to complete the FAFSA. However, when you file your tax return, you must update any income or tax information that changed since you filed your FAFSA using the online corrections tool.

Stipend payments should be reported as taxable income on your FAFSA. The school does not require parental data on your FAFSA.

Federal Verification

Income for applicants selected for federal verification must be validated by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Applicants must use the IRS Data Retrieval process to electronically retrieve and transfer their income information to complete and/or update their FAFSA data. Applicants that make changes to the transferred information or are unable to use the IRS Data Retrieval process must provide the Financial Aid Office with a 2014 IRS Tax Return Transcript.

All required verification documents must submitted to the Financial Aid Office before an aid award can be finalized. The deadline to submit required documentation is the student's last day of half-time (6 or more credits per term) enrollment or the last day of classes for the fourth term of the academic year, whichever date occurs first.
