  • Our faculty will work with you to customize your educational experience to meet your unique goals. Our students take courses from across the School of Engineering, as well as at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, and our Schools of Medicine and Arts and Sciences. We also offer exceptional dual-degree opportunities.
  • Qualified students may benefit from unique scholarship opportunities, including the Information Security Institute Fellowship, the National Science Foundation Scholarship for Service and the Department of Defense Information Assurance Scholarship Program.
  • Our technology and recruitment seminar series provide direct access to technical and business leaders in the field, and to the latest trends and challenges in the rapidly changing field of information security.

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.

The following courses still have waiting lists and department consent applied so you will NOT be able to add these courses.

Course enrollment for Spring 2018

Appointments for course enrollment began on Monday 26 March and open enrollment begins on Wednesday 28 March.

For students trying to add CS courses, we encourage you to review the course selection page.

In Computer Science,  we drop the enrolment caps by approximately 15% of the total enrolment number for the course to give advisors room to handle special cases. We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total. WHAT IS A SPECIAL CASE?
