Some 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 wait until the last minute – submit now!

QuestionsIt’s the final “What You’re Asking” of 2014!

In this (mostly) monthly series, I scope out emails sent to jhsph.admiss@jhu.edu and tally the most frequently asked questions. I then answer the most popular questions here on the blog.

This month’s questions are:

I completed my undergraduate degree in [choose a country outside the U.S.]. Do I need to submit those transcripts and if so, do they need to be evaluated?

Yes and yes.

The Bloomberg School requires official academic records, transcripts, or mark sheets from all colleges, universities, graduate, or professional schools attended. That includes the records from your undergraduate institution, even if you didn’t finish your degree.

In addition, regardless of your citizenship, language or home country, if you attended a college or university outside of the United States, you must have your academic records evaluated by an external U.S.-based credentials evaluation agency.

There are some exceptions for study abroad and English-speaking Canada, but you should carefully review our international applicant page for details in fulfilling this requirement.

I submitted my application, but my test scores may be late. Is that going to be a problem?

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 your program. 

You should contact your department of interest to discuss how any late materials might affect your application.

Lastly, remember: application deadlines vary. Know your program, its application, requirements and deadline.

Best wishes to you and your application!
