In a little over two weeks, we’ll be welcoming our full-time MPH students to Orientation. In advance of that welcome, I’d like to make a few introductions to our incoming students.

Meet Student Affairs!

Student Affairs is the department under which Admissions Services, Career Services, Disability Support Services, Financial Aid, Records and Registration, Student Life and SOURCE (Student Outreach Resource Center) all operate. It’s kind of a customer service unit for students.

Admissions Services

If you’re an admitted student, you’re probably very familiar with Admissions Services. Admissions works with prospective students to help them learn more about the Bloomberg School and navigate the admissions process.

Career Services

Career Services helps students, alumni, faculty, staff and employers navigate the world of public health jobs. Among other things, career services staff conduct resume workshops, mock interviews, and host one of the largest public health career fairs in the country.

Disability Support Services

Disability Support Services reviews documentation and provides the appropriate accommodations for students who need them.

Financial Aid

The Financial Aid Office helps with federal and private loans, as well as the Federal Work-Study Program.

Records and Registration

Records & Registration manages course registration, distributes diplomas, provides transcripts to alumni, and helps students with veteran's benefits.

Student Life

The Office of Student Life promotes an atmosphere that embraces the diversity of our academic community both here in Baltimore and abroad.

SOURCE

SOURCE, or the Student Outreach Resource Center, is a tri-school entity providing academic, professional and personal development opportunities for students through community outreach and service-learning partnerships with local organizations.

Incoming students will have a chance to chat with representatives of these departments during Orientation.

They will be pleased to meet you!

REMINDER

Application deadlines vary by program: know your program, its applicationrequirements and deadline. School policy requires your online application and supporting materials (official transcripts, test scores, letters of recommendation, etc.) to be submitted before or on the application deadline.  

Some programs (NOT ALL) are willing to review applications completed soon after the deadline.  However, once the published deadline has passed, Admissions Services can no longer guarantee an admissions review.  Submitting materials after the deadline may also hurt your chances of funding through the department.

Best wishes to you and your application!

After a snowy, slushy February, we have sprung into March!

We have a number of events over the next couple weeks you should know about:

RESCHEDULED 2015 Public Health Career Fair

The Public Health Career Fair, originally scheduled for March 6, was cancelled because of inclement weather. It has been rescheduled for THURSDAY, MARCH 26. You should come! The fair is open to area graduate students and JHSPH alumni. Over fifty employers will attend!

New date for Career Fair

2015 Recruitment Calendar

We are steady adding events to our spring recruitment schedule. Over the next two months, Bloomberg School representatives will be at various venues in Baltimore, Maryland; Washington, DC; Boston, Massachusetts; California and Saudi Arabia. Check out our calendar to see if we’ll be near you!

Admitted Student Events

A number of opportunities exist for admitted students to learn more about our school, community and city. Two Admitted Student Visitors Days are scheduled for March and April. Eight virtual information sessions are scheduled between now and May. Dates, event descriptions and registration may be found on the Admitted Student Website (login and password required).

As always, feel free to contact us with any questions.

We hope to see you soon!
