Hello again from the JHU Office of Undergraduate Admissions! This post is just for our transfer applicants. Each year, we welcome a group of highly talented transfer students into our sophomore and junior classes. (Interested in applying as a transfer student next year? See for details.)

As you should know, we will be releasing admissions decisions for transfer decisions TODAY. Please see below for more details:

  • Decisions will be released in batches starting this afternoon. You will receive an e-mail letting you know when your decision is ready to view.
  • You will access your decision through the decision release site, In order to get the log-in information for that, you’ll need to set up your account through the Johns Hopkins University Integrated Student Information System (ISIS). At this point, all applicants should have received instructions on logging into ISIS, either through our office or the Office of Student Financial Services if you’ve applied for aid. We’ve sent several e-mails throughout the month with the subject “Important Information about JHU Transfer Decision Release.”
  • Follow the instructions in the log-in e-mail carefully. If you get stuck or run into problems, call our office at (410) 516-8171 and we’ll talk you through it. Some things you can try if you are having issues: Refresh your browser. Close out completely and re-open the page in a new window. Or, even if you think you haven’t been able to set a password, try the password recovery link anyway.
  • Once you receive the e-mail letting you know your decision is ready to view, follow the link to and use the ID and password you set up to log-in. There, you’ll see your decision and will be able to follow any pertinent instructions.
  • There is one exception to this process: A small group of students have been chosen to remain on a wait list for transfer applicants. Those students will receive an e-mail informing them of their decision and will receive instructions on how to remain on the wait list if they would like to do so.
  • If you haven’t yet received your e-mail with log-in instructions, try the following things:
    • Check all e-mail accounts, including your parents’ and any others you might’ve used throughout your college application process. We’ll send all official communications to the e-mail you supplied on your application.
    • Check your spam/junk folders. Sometimes (rarely, but sometimes) our e-mails get caught up in spam filters.
    • If you still don’t have the e-mail, call or e-mail us at and we’ll get it figured out.

Good luck to all of our transfer applicants!
