NEW & IMPROVED APPLICATION PROCESS — STARTING SEPTEMBER 2018

Thank you for considering Johns Hopkins School of Education (SOE) for your graduate education.

The Johns Hopkins School of Education is launching a new application on September 4, 2018. Our new application will allow you to create an application account, upload required documents, and monitor your status through the process.

Please identify your application status:

APPLICANTS WITH APPLICATIONS SUBMITTED PRIOR TO SEPT. 4, 2018

For applicants who have completed an application BEFORE September 4, 2018, and have questions about their application or accepting an offer in our former application system, please visit our SIS applicant instruction page. If you have questions about completing an application in our SIS legacy system, please contact the Office of Admissions at soe.admissions@jhu.edu.

NEW APPLICANTS SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION ON/OR AFTER SEPT. 4, 2018

Please follow the steps below to successfully submit and complete your admissions application.

Your application may be submitted after you have answered all required questions. Additional application sections (test Scores, writing sample, and other requirements) will appear after you have selected a graduate program on the “Program Details” tab of your application.

You do not have to complete your application in one sitting–you may access and edit your application as many times as desired until submitted by logging in with your username and password. To navigate through the system, please use the navigational links located on the left of your screen.

Programs have different deadlines and requirements. Before you begin working on your application, please review important program specific information located in the Admissions Deadlines & Requirements section of our website

To start your application, create a user account by clicking on the link below. You will be emailed a temporary PIN to log into the SOE Application.  (Be sure to check your junk mail folder if you do not see the email.)

Log in using your birth date and this temporary PIN. Once logged in, you will be prompted to create a password.  Use this password along with your email address in subsequent logins.

How to Apply

Step 1

Review the specific admissions requirements and deadlines for the program you are seeking admission.

  • Our degree programs have different deadlines. The online application closes after 11:59 p.m. Eastern (EDT)) on the day of the deadline. John Hopkins does not extend or waive application deadlines for any reason, including technical issues experienced by applicants who have missed a program deadline. Please check our Admissions Deadlines & Requirement page for specific information on timelines.

Step 2

Apply online and submit your application fee.

Tips

  • Please use your legal name (first and last name/surname). International applicants, please list your full name as it appears on your passport.
  • If your previous academic records list a former last name, please list the name your records are listed in the “Previous/Other Name field”.
  • Please use a single email address that will not expire before your desired term of entry, as it will be used for all Office of Admissions correspondence.
  • List all your previous college-level institutions on your application. You are required to report all institutions attended, including but not limited to: community college courses, military academies, post-baccalaureate, graduate, and doctoral work.  If the Office of Admissions determines that an institution was not reported, you will receive a request to submit an official transcript. This can significantly delay the processing of your application. (NOTE: It is the policy of the School of Education that submitted application materials such as transcripts, test scores, CV, letters of recommendation, essays, and other items are neither returned nor forwarded on to a third party. This includes to other schools within Johns Hopkins University.)
  • All letters of recommendation must be submitted through the online application system. Letters dated more than one year from the term you are applying will not be accepted.

Step 3

Request official transcripts from all institutions and test scores (if required by your program-see below).

The Office of Admissions accepts certified electronic transcripts directly from issuing institutions to the following email address: soe.admissions@jhu.edu or you may request your official transcripts be mailed to the following address:
