Apply for admission

Application to the biomedical engineering program will be made through Johns Hopkins University Undergraduate Admissions.

Applications are accepted from August through January for the following academic year. Freshman candidates can apply with the Universal College Application or Common Application. Students should submit their application and Johns Hopkins Supplement using the same method.

Both the Universal College Application and Common Application require a Johns Hopkins Supplement (available online through each application site.)

Early Decision candidates must sign and submit the Early Decision Agreement found in whichever application they have chosen to use to apply.

In all cases, the $70 nonrefundable application fee is due, by check or money order (do not send cash) payable to Johns Hopkins University, or by credit card if applying online. You may also submit a College Board fee waiver form, a NACAC fee waiver form, or a need-based fee waiver request from your high school guidance counselor.

Quick Facts about Admission to Biomedical Engineering

  • Each application to the University is carefully reviewed by Office of Undergraduate Admissions. The admissions committee is interested in students who have challenged themselves academically and have demonstrated that they have the determination, dedication and commitment to impact the world in which they live.
  • Students must indicate BME as their first-choice major on their application. Students are admitted specifically into the BME major, based on evaluation of credentials and space available. Students can be admitted to the University without acceptance to the BME major. No separate application is required.
  • Students who wish to transfer to the University from other academic institutions are not eligible for transfer into the BME major. We encourage transfer applicants to review the other bioengineering program options that are available.
