The DePaul MPH Program admits students once per year in the fall quarter. We are accepting applications for fall 2021 in SOPHAS (centralized application system for public health programs).
The following are required for students applying to the program:
Students educated outside the United States must present proof of English proficiency. The college requires a minimum TOEFL score of 80 on the TOEFL iBT, 213 on the computer-based test or 550 on the paper-based test. While applicants who meet the college minimum will be reviewed, the MPH admission committee prefers TOEFL scores of at least 96 on the TOEFL iBT, 243 on the computer-based test or 590 on the paper-based test. A minimum 7.5 on the IELTS may be submitted for this requirement.
The MPH program admits for the fall quarter only. The preferred application deadline is March 1, 2021. 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.
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
