Here are the instructions for applying for financial aid at the Bloomberg School.
To Apply For Federal Aid (Federal Loans Or The Federal Work-Study Program)
- File the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Indicate that the information should be sent to the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health – Code E00234.
- Submit the 2013-2014 Public Health Federal Student Aid Application for the 2013-2014 academic year (July 1, 2013 to May 16, 2014). New and continuing students who will attend in the summer and/or the fall of 2013 should fill out the 2013-2014 financial aid applications.
- If selected for verification by the U.S. Department of Education for the 2013-2014 academic year, you will need to submit additional information to our office. Please contact our office for more information.
Keep in mind that as a graduate student, you meet the federal definition of an independent student so you do not need to provide parental data on the FAFSA.
Tax Return Information:
The Bloomberg School recommends that you complete your federal tax return before filling out your FAFSA, but you do not need to file it.
You may estimate your income and tax information on the FAFSA. However, when you do file your tax return, you must update any income or tax information that changed since you filed your FAFSA.
Stipend payments should be reported as taxable income on your FAFSA.
To Apply For Maryland State Financial Aid
You must submit your FAFSA by March 1 and indicate in Step One that you are a Maryland resident. In Step Five, you must list a Maryland school as your first choice.
A financial aid applicant who is selected for verification must submit all required verification documents to the Financial Aid Office before an aid award can be finalized.
The deadline to submit all 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.
To Apply For Private Loans
Students who are not eligible for any federal financial assistance may apply for private loans.
- Complete an online loan application through a private loan provider.
*Review the information about private loans.
- Submit the 2013-2014 Public Health Private Loan Supplemental Application for the 2013-2014 academic year (July 1, 2013 to May 16, 2014) after your private loan application has been fully approved with the lender of your choice.
- Notify the Financial Aid Office of your lender.
