The DePaul MPH Program admits students once per year in the fall quarter. We are currently reviewing applications to start the MPH program in fall 2022. The fall 2023 application will open in SOPHAS on August 16, 2022. SOPHAS is the online, centralized application service for public health graduate programs nationwide. 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 students should also see the International Admission page for additional application requirements. Students educated outside the United States must present proof of English proficiency. The college requires a minimum TOEFL score of 80. While applicants who meet the college minimum will be reviewed, the MPH admission committee prefers TOEFL scores of at least 96. A minimum 7.5 on the IELTS or 125 on the Duolingo English Test (DET) may be submitted for this requirement.
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
