International Applicants

We strongly encourage international students to start the online application process as soon as possible due to the extra time and paperwork involved in managing the student visa process. Admissions for the Public Health & Professional Degree Programs is on a rolling basis and applications are reviewed as they are received.

However, to prevent visa delays and to ensure you can begin your program during your desired semester, we strongly encourage international students to submit all application documents a minimum of two months prior to the beginning of the semester.

Information on arriving, VISA and frequently asked questions is available through our International Affairs Office.
