The DePaul MPH Program admits students once per year in the fall quarter using SOPHAS. SOPHAS is the online, centralized application service for public health graduate programs nationwide. We are currently reviewing applications to start the MPH program in fall 2023. The priority application deadline is March 1, 2023. Visit the SOPHAS Applicant Help Center for detailed application instructions. There is no supplemental application through DePaul's website- you will only apply via SOPHAS.*
The following are required for students applying to the program:
International student applicants must submit proof of English language proficiency in order to be reviewed for admission. The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences accepts scores from the TOEFL, the IELTS and the Duolingo English Test (DET) as proof of English proficiency. Students who have previously earned an undergraduate or graduate degree in a country where the official native language is recognized as English may be exempt from the English language proficiency requirement- please contact the Office of Graduate Admission with questions about this exemption (email@example.com).
To be considered English language proficient, the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences requires a score of at least 80 on the iBT TOEFL with a minimum score of 17 on each section, or at least 6.5 on the IELTS or at least 110 on the DET.
While applicants who meet the college minimum will be reviewed, the MPH admission committee prefers the following preferred scores: TOEFL (96), IELTS (7.5), and DET (125).
The MPH program admits for the fall quarter only. The preferred application deadline is March 1 annually. It is recommended that applicants submit via SOPHAS 3-4 weeks ahead of the preferred deadline to allow time for verification. Only applications verified in SOPHAS will be reviewed. After March 1, applications will be reviewed until the cohort is filled. The final deadline for international applicants is May 1 annually.
Admission events include Graduate School Open Houses and MPH Program Information Sessions. At these events, prospective students can learn about admissions requirements and program content. Faculty, staff, and students are also available to answer questions at these session. You can view the schedule of upcoming events
