Apply for Financial Aid

New for 24-25: FAFSA Application Changes

The FAFSA Simplification Act brought changes to the FAFSA application. Learn more about what that means for your application.

January 31, 2024 Update: Due to technical difficulties with accessing the FAFSA, the timeline and some application deadlines have been extended. Visit your school’s financial aid pages below to learn more.

There will be a delay between the date you submit the FAFSA and when we receive it. Hopkins will not be able to confirm receipt until mid-March. If you have submitted the FAFSA, please check the To-Do List on the Financial Aid tab in SIS in March for confirmation of receipt. Your aid will not be jeopardized if the receipt is not confirmed until after the due date.

For Maryland residents only: The Maryland Higher Education Commission has extended the Maryland financial aid deadline to submit the 2024-2025 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to June 1, 2024. However, students are encouraged to submit the FAFSA by the priority deadline of March 1, 2024 to receive notification of eligibility by April 15, 2024.

Students must apply for need-based financial aid every year.

Students who receive financial aid must be in good academic standing and continue to make Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) toward obtaining their degree or certificate.
