Hopkins announces 3.5 percent tuition hike for fifth straight year

Tuition for full-time liberal arts and engineering students at the Johns Hopkins University will increase $1,760, or 3.5 percent, next school year, the university announced this week.

The increase will bring tuition to $52,170 for more than 5,400 undergraduates in the Hopkins schools of the arts and sciences and of engineering. The fall semester will begin the fifth straight school year in which tuition for the two schools went up by 3.5 percent.

The rates for room and board on the Homewood campus — a standard double room and 19 meals per week — will increase 2.9 percent this fall to $15,410. That will bring the total for tuition, room and board to $67,580, up 3.4 percent from this year.

University officials said they would also increase financial aid for these students by about 9 percent, to $99 million. Half of Homewood undergraduates will get financial aid next year and pay significantly less than full tuition, officials said. The average aid package will be $42,500.
