Johns Hopkins, one of the most expensive universities in the country, is about to get a little more pricey– 3.5 percent more pricey, to be precise.
The university announced that it would raise tuition by $1,650 to $48,710, an increase of 3.5 percent. Factoring in room and board means that the sticker price of one year at the university is a whopping $63,250 next year. The tuition hike is about average for schools of similar caliber; for comparison purposes, Dartmouth raised prices by 2.9 percent and Brown upped theirs by 4.4 percent.
Of course, as with most private universities, plenty of people are paying less than the sticker price. Just under half of all undergrads at the university receive some level of need-based financial aid.
