Tuition and Health Insurance

Since MSEM is a professional degree, most Master’s students will be expected to cover their own tuition and expenses, though some merit aid may be available at the discretion of the admissions committee.

Applicants who completed their undergraduate degrees at Johns Hopkins will receive a WSE Dean’s Fellowship waiving 50% of tuition.

Tuition for full-time students at Johns Hopkins for the 2022-2023 academic year is $60, 480 or $30,240 per semester.

More information on the typical costs of a JHU graduate student can be found here, along with instructions on how to apply for additional financial aid in the form of loans.

All students in the MSEM program are eligible to receive coverage through the University-sponsored Student Health insurance.

MSEM students also have the opportunity to become Teaching Assistants in their second and third semesters. These positions pay $16.50/hr.
