  • Students must complete the graduate program application for admission into the MPH graduate program (available on the university website)
  • Applicants must submit official transcripts from all universities and colleges attended, including community colleges. Applicants should have an overall GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. (If you do not meet the minimum GPA requirements, it is possible to be admitted on a probationary status.)
