The Johns Hopkins Alumni Association launched OneHop, our upgraded online alumni directory and networking program. OneHop builds on our previous GoHopOnline platform to offer improved alumni-to-alumni networking, an easily-searchable alumni directory, and opportunities to connect with our many alumni communities. OneHop will be your one stop to connect with fellow JHU and Johns Hopkins SAIS alumni and to support current undergrad and grad students.
If you were a previous GoHopOnline user, your profile will transfer to OneHop, and your registration process will be fast-tracked.
Visit to see what OneHop has to offer – we can’t wait to see you there!

The Johns Hopkins SAIS experience is incomparable, made even more rewarding by the remarkable students we attract from around the globe. No one knows better than you what it takes to be successful as a student, and that is why we are asking each of you to spread the word by referring at least one exceptional person to the school.

We are excited to launch a new “Alumni Profiles” feature to better highlight our diverse, accomplished, and connected global alumni network. We encourage you to complete the Alumni Profiles Online Form for consideration. While we hope to feature as many of our amazing alumni as possible, please note submission does not guarantee a profile; if you are selected a representative from the Office of Development and Alumni Relations will follow up with further details.

Many more benefits are available to you through the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association. Visit the university's alumni services and benefits page to learn more.
