DrPH Admissions & Tuition

The DrPH program is not accepting applications for the 2019-2020 academic year. Please contact the program for more information.

Application Requirements

A complete application to the DrPH program includes the following:

1. A submitted and verified application in SOPHAS.

2. Three letters of recommendation.

3. Official Verified Test Scores (GRE, MCAT, or GMAT scores are accepted).

SOPHAS Application

SOPHAS is the centralized application service for schools and programs of public health. By creating an account with SOPHAS, you are able to apply to multiple public health programs at one time. SOPHAS collects and processes application materials before ultimately sending those materials to individual programs for application review. SOPHAS does not provide the PHPD Admissions Office with access to your application details and materials until you have submitted your application and paid the application fee to SOPHAS. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to submit your application to Tufts via SOPHAS as soon as possible to ensure that we can help you to complete your application in a timely manner.
