We always welcome visitors to the Bloomberg School, especially admitted students. However, we do understand that sometimes making a trip to Baltimore isn’t always possible (although you’re missing out on a great city). We also understand how important it is to connect with current students and have your questions answered. For all these reasons, we’ve organized some virtual information sessions.

The Doctoral Student Panel will take place on Wednesday, March 23, 2016 from 12 – 1 p.m. EST.

The Master’s Student Panel will be held on Wednesday, March 30, 2016 from 12 – 1 p.m. EST.

A Housing and Life in Baltimore session will take place on Wednesday, May 4, 2016 from 12 -1 p.m. EST.

We look forward to connecting with you virtually and answering your questions!

You can find more information on the Admitted Students website. Please let us know if you need a reminder of the login information.

And for those of you who haven’t applied yet, don’t forget to check out our schedule of where we will be on the road this spring!

This morning, we are welcoming approximately 275 full-time Master of Public Health students to the Bloomberg School of Public Health!

You made it! Welcome!


Earlier this month, I introduced you to the offices of Student Affairs.

Today, I’d like to focus on one of those offices – particularly for you admitted students.

As admitted students become current students, their files move from admissions to the Office of Records and Registration. R&R is the go-to office for so many things: registering for courses, ordering Bloomberg School transcripts, veterans benefits and eventually graduation.

Incoming MPH students (just a few more days!) should see the checklist R&R has provided.

Reminders and the latest R&R information can be found on Facebook or Twitter.

Summer will officially start next week, but no vacations yet!

We’re getting ready to welcome approximately 280 full-time MPH Students!

questions?We are long overdue for a post in our (mostly) monthly series, “What You’re Asking.” In this series, I scope out emails sent to and tally the most frequently asked questions. I then answer the most popular questions here on the blog.

This month our two questions are on opposite ends of the admissions timeline.

Can you tell me more about your public health graduate programs?

The Bloomberg School offers TEN (!) public health graduate degrees.  These degrees include our Schoolwide Master of Public Health (MPH), the Master of Bioethics offered in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics, and eight departmental degrees focused within one of 43 study areas. Also available are combined degrees, certificates, and various non-degree opportunities.

With so many options, we strongly encourage prospective students to take some time exploring the broad public health spectrum covered by our School.

I’m an admitted student and received an email about submitting final transcripts. What is that?

Did you apply while completing your final year of undergraduate studies? Perhaps there were pre-requisite courses you agreed to complete before matriculating. Or maybe you had some very special circumstances and your program of interest agreed to review your application without official academic records.

Regardless of which of the above applies to you, we are required to have final official transcripts on file for all incoming students. Details may be found on the Admitted Student Website (login and password required) or feel free to contact us.
