Undergraduate Tuition
to Rise 3.9 Percent

Tuition for full-time undergraduates at The Johns Hopkins University will increase 3.9 percent this fall.

In announcing the increase, President Ronald J. Daniels said, "We have worked hard to recognize the challenges faced by many students and families in a recessionary economy while balancing the fiscal challenges confronting the university."

The increase, amounting to $1,530, will bring tuition for the 2010-2011 academic year to $40,680 for the nearly 5,000 full-time undergraduates in the School of Arts and Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering.

Meanwhile, aid for undergraduates in Arts and Sciences and Engineering will increase this fall by 11.3 percent, or $6.2 million, to a total of $61.1 million.

Despite significant cuts in state aid and a decline in endowment earnings, as well as an uncertain immediate future for philanthropic and federal research support, Daniels said the university remains committed to maintaining academic excellence and providing financial aid to students who need it.

"We cannot and will not compromise on either the quality of the educational experience or on our commitment to open that experience to students no matter their economic background," Daniels said.
