As of Fall 2022, the submission of GRE scores are optional for all candidates applying to MPH and MSPH programs. We do not have specific GPA or GRE requirements for admission. If you choose to submit test scores, they cannot be more than five years old. Please Note: International applicants from non-English-speaking countries must meet the RSPH standards for English language competency.
In addition, we seek students who are passionate about global health and wish to improve the health of their local and global communities. Our students have demonstrated this commitment through careers, service, or training in advancing global health. This might include working with underserved communities or within a local state or regional public health entity (either domestically or internationally), volunteer or mission experience, or service with Peace Corps, AmeriCorps, etc.
