Home to Hopkins allows you all the benefits of beginning your Johns Hopkins’ graduate education from home, while still allowing you to take full advantage of the F-1 Visa once you arrive in the U.S. to study in-person.

You will enroll in online courses for the initial portion of your master’s degree program. However, to still fully qualify for Optional Practical Training (OPT) and Curricular Practical Training (CPT) as a part of your F-1 Visa, you will need to complete the program with both a Fall and Spring Term where you are enrolled full-time in on-campus courses. (Full-time status is defined as nine credits per semester.)

Here is a list of the degree programs that qualify for this opportunity, the total required number of courses can be found on each program’s main page:

These four Dual Degrees will also qualify, however please note that the Master of Business Administration portion of your Dual Degree would be front-loaded within the online-course portion of your Home to Hopkins schedule:
