MPH Admissions Process

In addition to measures of academic preparation and readiness for graduate studies, the MPH Admissions Committee considers individual experience and commitment to public health when evaluating candidates. We welcome applications from students who hold a baccalaureate degree (or higher) from a college or university regarded as standard by a regional or general accrediting agency, and have at least a B average (3.0 GPA) in undergraduate course work. The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is not required. If desired, you may upload a publication and/or writing sample.
