The Bloomberg School Application and supporting materials for the following programs are due:

Remember: school policy is that your online application and supporting materials (official transcripts, test scores, letters of recommendation, etc.) must be submitted by the application deadline.  

Some of our programs (NOT ALL) are willing to review applications completed soon after the deadline.  However, once the 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. 

Don’t take that chance – apply early!

Deadline alertWe're coming into the home stretch of the application season with a few more deadlines to bring to your attention.

Some programs (NOT ALL) will accept applications and materials after the posted deadline. However, once the deadline has passed, applications may close at any time. We do our best to keep you informed of these closures, but if you haven't completed your application before the posted deadline, we can't guarantee that your application will be reviewed.

Question markIt’s time for another edition in our series of posts: “What You’re Asking.”

Here’s how it works: I scope out emails sent to and tally the most frequently asked questions. I answer a couple of those popular questions here.

So, without further ado. . .

Where do I send my official transcripts?

Please have your institution send your official transcript to our office:

Admissions Services
615 N. Wolfe Street, Suite E1002
Baltimore, Maryland 21205

Paper transcripts should arrive to our office in an envelope sealed by the issuing institution. No personal photo copies, please.

If your institution has a secure electronic delivery system for transcripts, they may email login information to Please note, such a delivery system is not the same as a copy sent as an email attachment. Emailed attachments are not considered official.

If you have transcripts from an institution physically located outside the U.S., please see our credentials evaluation requirement.

I just took the GRE. If my test scores don’t arrive by the deadline, will my application still be reviewed?

The Long Answer:
The Schoolwide policy is that the online application and all supporting materials such as official transcripts, test scores, and letters of recommendation must be submitted by the application deadline.

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

Some of our programs (including the Schoolwide MPH) have priority and final deadlines. Applicants who complete their application by the priority deadline have a better chance of receiving funding.  Once the final deadline has passed, incomplete applications may not be reviewed.

You may wish to contact your department of interest to discuss any late materials and their possible effect on your application.

The Short Answer:
Why risk it? Schedule tests and request transcripts well in advance. Submit all your materials before the deadline.

Alarm ClockAugust?!  How did that happen?

In case time is sneaking up on you too, here’s an alert for you:

The online application (and all supporting materials) for the online/part-time Master of Public (MPH) beginning in Baltimore in January 2014 is September 1!
