SAT Score Choice Policy

Johns Hopkins University considers your highest section scores across all SATs taken—even if they were on different test dates—in our evaluation of your application. We therefore encourage you to update your application with new test scores each time you take the SATs. This policy corresponds with the College Board’s "SAT Score—Use Practice Highest Section Scores Across Test Dates—Version 2."
Transfer Applicants

SAT Reasoning Test or ACT scores are optional. SAT Subject Tests are not required.
English Proficiency

The TOEFL requirement is based on the linguistic background of applicants, not citizenship. TOEFL is required of all applicants who have not attended an English language school for the last five years and whose primary language is not English. Applicants who score 670 or higher on the Critical Reading section of the SAT or 30 or more on both the ACT Reading AND English sections do not have to submit TOEFL scores. Students who meet these testing requirements are still encouraged to submit TOEFL scores, as it will often present them in the best light for their language preparation. Non-native English speakers attending English language schools for the last five years are not required to submit a TOEFL score but may do so to supplement their application. IELTS will be accepted from applicants who live in countries where TOEFL is not administered. A score of 7.0 or higher on each band is expected on IELTS.

Johns Hopkins prefers a score of 600 on the written test. The preferred sub-scores for the Internet-based TOEFL (iBT) are 26 (Reading), 26 (Listening), 22 (Writing), and 25 (Speaking) A score of 670 or higher on the Critical Reading section of the SAT Reasoning Test waives the TOEFL requirement for all students.
