For 2021 Applicants Only – GRE Accommodations Due to COVID-19
In response to the test accessibility issues caused by COVID-19, the Whiting School of Engineering (WSE) has decided to make the GRE exam optional for the 2021 admissions cycle. This only applies to graduate applications for the following start terms: Spring 2021, Summer 2021, and Fall 2021. For those applicants that have GRE scores ready, we will accept them. Please note, there will be no admissions advantage in submitting GRE scores. Likewise, there will be no disadvantage to any applicant for not submitting GRE scores. Our programs engage in holistic admissions review, and we expect many competitive applications will not include GRE scores this year.
The Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering graduate program at Hopkins is known for its national leadership in biomolecular research, supported by collaborations with the top-tier ranked Johns Hopkins medical institutions and the top-ranked Biomedical Engineering department.
We have added six new faculty in the past year and our leadership role now extends to significant efforts in both computer simulation and machine learning, and in nanoscience.
This is a great place for interdisciplinary research, with many collaborative programs with scientists and engineers, the Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology, the Applied Physics Laboratory, and nearby government laboratories, such as the National Institutes of Health and the National Institutes of Standards and Technology.
Our collaborative partners provide students with the opportunity to conduct research and learn in an extraordinary array of state-of-the-art laboratories and supercomputer-class computational facilities.
We are dedicated to fostering an inclusive, diverse, and welcoming environment for faculty, staff, and students (see our Values Statement)
Come experience the advantages of a city with a relaxed feel and a warm welcoming campus community.
PLEASE NOTE: United States Social Security Numbers are included as part of student tuition information for U.S. taxes (IRS Form 1098-T) and are used for enrollment verification through the National Student Clearinghouse.

NOTE: Professional credential evaluation is not required prior to an admissions decision provided that the applicant submits transcripts in English. However, if you are admitted please be advised that you will need to provide professional credential evaluation. The TOEFL score can be waived if the applicant has received, or expects to receive, a B.S. or M.S. degree from an English-speaking country before starting a graduate program at Johns Hopkins.
The application fee may be waived for applicants with documented (must be uploaded within the application) registration/participation in one of the following programs: GEM, Department Request, SACNAS, MMUF, POSSE, JHU Grad Student, McNair, ABRCMS, Vietnam Education Foundation, IRT, Graduate Horizons, Chocktaw/Chickasaw Scholarship Advisement Program, Baltimore Scholars Program, Leadership Alliance, UMBC Meyerhoff Program, LSAMP, Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship Program, Project 1000, MARC and University of Puerto Rico Students. To request a waiver based on financial hardship please select the option on the application and upload one of the following: FAFSA SAR Report, a letter from a college/university financial aid office, unemployment verification. Do not send tax returns. All documents will be reviewed and verified for satisfactory evidence. If the uploaded document is not accepted you will be contacted to resubmit or to pay the application fee. For further information please contact the Whiting School’s Graduate Admissions team.
The TOEFL score requirement is enforced in most cases. Your application will be reviewed by the admissions committee, but a score below the minimum may reduce your chances for receiving an offer. The admissions process is competitive and most applicants will meet or exceed that minimum threshold.
