*An official transcript is required for full admission to a summer course or program at The Johns Hopkins University. We will take action on an application with an unofficial transcript by providing provisional admission. Full admission must be obtained no later than one week prior to the start of the course or program. Admission will be revoked in instances where applicants do not resolve their provisional status. No refund will be permitted.

**A high level of proficiency in English is expected of applicants for summer programs and courses at The Johns Hopkins University. Applicants should typically receive a minimum of 100 total for the Internet-based TOEFL (iBT) with preferred sub-scores of 26 (Reading), 26 (Listening), 22 (Writing), and 25 (Speaking). A score of 7.0 or higher on each band is expected on IELTS, and a score of 75 or higher is expected for the Duolingo English Test (DET). International applicants who have attended an English speaking school (high school or college) for a minimum of two years are waived from the proficiency requirement.
