How do I find out the status of my application?
Please note that applicants can only check their document status by using the online application 'checklist', which is updated very often during the admissions season. All applicants will be notified formally via email by the end of April/early May as to their official application status.
Can I call or email the office to find out the current status?
Due to the high volume of applications that are being processed, phone calls and e-mail inquiries will not be responded to. Please use the application online checklist to see your document status, wihch is updated frequently during the admissions season.
When will I find out if I was accepted to the program?
An email will be sent to each applicant in due course indicating the final status of your application. This is not available on the online checklist (which is just to see document status).
Letters start to go out in March and can still be going out until May. It is a lengthy process and we do our best to keep applicants updated as soon as possible.
Do you have a wait list?
We do compile a small wait list, as inevitably some applicants offered a spot in the program will decline. Applicants are notified right away if they are on the Wait list and regular updates are sent to them throughout the admissions period.
Can I appeal the decision of the MPH Admissions Committee?
Unless it can be shown that the application information was erroneous through no fault of the applicant, admissions decisions are final.
What type of a job will I get with an MPH degree?
