We are delighted that you are considering graduate studies at Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals. Get ready to elevate your career and build your network of engineers. 

General guidelines and ​​admission requirements for graduate programs are below.

Carefully review your individual program of interest for any additional admission requirements beyond those listed here.

Master’s Degree, Graduate Certificate, and Special Students*

  • Except as provided herein, applicants must be in the last semester of undergraduate study at or hold a bachelor’s or graduate degree from a US regionally accredited college or university. While there is no automatic prohibition of the admission of students from US nationally accredited colleges or universities, EP retains the right to assess an applicant’s courses and/or degrees earned from one of those institutions to determine their academic readiness for the Program. Applicants who hold degrees from international institutions are encouraged to apply and must meet requirements found on EP’s International Applicants webpage.
  • Admitted students typically have earned a grade point average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (B or above) in the latter half of their undergraduate studies (when reviewing an application, the candidate’s academic and professional background will be considered).
  • Applicants must submit official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended.
  • No GRE is required. Should you choose to submit scores, use code 4655.

*Special students are non-degree seeking applicants who take individual courses at Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals without enrolling in a program. Courses taken as a special student do not necessarily count toward fulfillment of degree requirements if the student is later accepted as a degree candidate. Cases are evaluated on an individual basis.

Post-Master’s Certificate Candidates

In addition to the requirements listed above, applicants must have earned a master’s degree in a relevant engineering or science discipline.


Official transcripts are due once you are given an offer.

*Note that undergraduates from JHU do not need to submit official transcripts.

Submitting Transcripts

1. After you submit your application, you can login to the student status page to add additional transcripts, but these will not be considered official.
2. Admitted applicants who initially submitted unofficial transcripts must have their official transcripts submitted prior to registering for their first course.
3. Transcripts are only deemed official if they are received directly from the degree granting institution or third party provider to [email protected].
