The University released a dashboard on Monday to track coronavirus (COVID-19) cases confirmed through the Johns Hopkins COVID-19 Call Center (JHCCC) and regular testing of students living on campus. Contact tracing is not part of the website.
U.S. News & World Report ranked Hopkins at ninth best university in the country in its 2021 Best National University Rankings, moving up a place from the 10th place spot last year.
When University President Ronald J. Daniels announced that the semester would be entirely remote in his August 6 email, he noted that tuition would be reduced by 10 percent and that the Office of Financial Aid was allocating $15 million in additional assistance money. Heading into the fall semester, students who requested additional aid are ultimately pleased with their grants, but feel that they lacked support throughout the process.
