Home2Homewood (H2H) is an initiative aimed at helping newly enrolled master’s students get a head start into their degree program.

Through H2H, students will be able to take up to three* relevant and approved online classes through the Whiting School’s Engineering for Professionals part-time and online programs (EP) before they arrive on the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus in Baltimore, MD, to begin their full-time, residential master’s program.

*The number  and types of allowable courses varies by program. Students should confirm with their individual program/adviser prior to enrollment. Also note that enrolling in or above 9 credits constitutes full time status.



Newly admitted international and domestic graduate students who have not yet started in their full-time, residential Whiting School of Engineering graduate program are eligible for H2H. Interested students are encouraged to contact the academic staff in their admitted master’s program for more information prior to the term of desired enrollment.


Visa Information

International students will not be given an I-20 for the period when they are remotely completing coursework, but will be issued one in advance of the semester in which they plan to begin their residential program at the Homewood campus. If a student is unable to obtain a viable visa to begin their in-person program, they will be automatically eligible for admissions consideration to enroll in EP as a remote, online student.



New Students taking online courses taken through the H2H program are subject to the tuition rate for EP online courses.

Per the above information, Full-time residential tuition fees will apply once a student enrolls in or more than 9 credits.
