Combined/Concurrent Degree Application Process

Johns Hopkins University undergraduate students currently enrolled in a bachelor’s program and interested in pursuing a master’s degree should apply using the combined/concurrent application. Review process and policy information for the Combined Bachelor’s/Master’s in Engineering. Additional details and program-specific policies can be reviewed on Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs.

Dean’s Master’s Fellowship

Every JHU student enrolled in a concurrent degree program will be awarded a Dean’s Master’s Fellowship, covering half their full-time tuition in semesters when (1) enrolled in a full-time status, and (2) after they have completed eight semesters at JHU or an adjusted time at JHU as a transfer student (six or four semesters, depending on transfer status). This fellowship does not cover intersession or summer terms when enrolled in a part-time status. Contact your program directly to determine if this option is available to you.

When to Apply

JHU undergraduates interested in pursuing a WSE master’s degree concurrently should check with the prospective graduate program to determine its application deadline, application requirements and degree requirements for the concurrent degree program.

The Whiting School requires that:

  1. an undergraduate student applies to a combined student status no later than the end of the first semester of their senior year (typically a student’s 7th semester), or in other words, their second-to-last semester of undergraduate study, and
  2. an undergraduate student be admitted and enrolled to a combined bachelor’s/graduate program no later than the start of their eighth/final undergraduate semester, and
  3. an undergraduate student cannot apply to a combined bachelor’s/graduate program for a start term beginning after their undergraduate degree has been conferred.

Application Type and Start Term Reference Charts

Any combined applications received during the 8th/final semester of a student’s undergraduate degree or after an undergraduate has received their degree conferral will be returned to the department to be reprocessed as a new graduate student application and enrollment. JHU undergraduate students are eligible for the Dean’s Master’s Fellowship regardless of the type of application they use to apply.

Apply Using the Combined/Concurrent Bachelor’s/Master’s Application

When applying before or during your second-to-last semester of undergraduate study, use the Combined application and select the appropriate start term based on the chart below.

In the Program Information section of the application:

  1. Select the Combined Bachelor’s/Master’s option.
  2. Select the appropriate department, program, degree type, and degree.
  3. Select the appropriate “Anticipated Start Term” based on when your undergraduate degree is expected to be conferred. Reference the chart below, but be aware programs may request combined students apply during an earlier semester, for example, during the fall semester of your junior year.
  4. Combined applicants are required to enter their current Hopkins ID as shown in SIS to complete and submit the application.

How to Submit Your Application 

Once you begin your application, you may log-in at any time to complete and submit your application. Complete and answer all required questions and upload all required materials. Applications must be submitted by the degree program’s application deadline. View the chart below for combined/concurrent application deadlines by degree program; all dates are valid for applications submitted for 2024 start terms.

After your application has been submitted, log in to your status portal to check the receipt of all materials on your requirements checklist. 

Application Submitted vs Application Complete

You will see a confirmation page once the application is successfully submitted. Our application system takes approximately 60 minutes to refresh after submission before all supporting materials display as received. You will receive a confirmation email that your application has been successfully submitted, and an additional email when your application is complete with all required materials, including letters of recommendation and official test scores, which may arrive later.

Application Materials

All application materials must be submitted directly in the application portal and are due at the time of submission. Official test scores, credential evaluations, and letters of recommendation will automatically populate to an application, even after submission.

We do not accept updated or replacement materials after submission or via email. This policy includes but is not limited to Unofficial Transcripts and Supporting Documents, e.g., Resume/CV, Statement of Purpose, Personal Statement, Sample of Work, or additional materials like a recently published paper, adding a new internship to resume, or a typo found in a supporting material.

Decisions

Application reviews are conducted directly by the degree program you applied for. Most programs do not begin review until after the deadline for submission has passed. Some programs wait to release decisions until all applications are reviewed.

Once a decision has been made, you will receive an email sent to the address registered with your application account to check the status update in your online portal. Contact the program you applied to directly for a specific timeline estimate.
