Note to Applicants Affected by the Coronavirus Outbreak

The Rollins School of Public Health is committed to supporting all applicants for admission. We are currently monitoring testing delays caused by the Coronavirus pandemic. Our thoughts are with students and families currently impacted by this situation.

ETS has introduced a solution for students who have been impacted by the coronavirus to take the TOEFL iBT® test and the GRE® General Test at home until test centers can reopen. TOEFL® testing is scheduled to begin on March 26, and GRE testing will begin on March 27.

Testing will be conducted through the use of live remote proctoring serviced by ProctorU®. This high-touch, real-time human monitoring of test sessions limits the number of seats available. Students can register beginning today in the following countries:

  • United States 
  • Canada
  • Colombia
  • France
  • Germany
  • Italy
  • Spain
  • Hong Kong (China)
  • Macau (China)

For more information please visit the TOEFL and GRE web pages dedicated to this purpose.

Our preferred deadline for admission is July 15. The Executive MPH for working professionals does not require GRE scores. As the situation continues to evolve and we receive further information regarding testing availability, we will be in touch with applicants. If you have concerns about testing availability and the completion of your application for admission, please email us We are here to support you and will offer updated guidance as this situation continues to evolve.

"The men and women who are my faculty here are incredibly talented. Being able to say that I have meaningful conversations and troubleshoot problems with Dean Curran, or being around people who have been paramount in establishing protocols for the elimination of smallpox, or developed diabetes research that is revolutionizing how people think about chronic disease in India is incredible!"
