Empty computer stationsOur staff is diligently working to launch the new application later this month. As part of that process, please note:

The JHSPH application for admission will be unavailable
Wednesday, August 21 through Friday, August 23.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email us.

Woman at ComputerWe know some of you are anxious to begin your application for programs beginning summer and fall 2014. I have good news for you!

The 2014-2015 Application will open September 1 --  less than a month!

What can you do now?

  1. Learn about all the degrees and programs the Bloomberg School has to offer!
  2. Review the newly posted 2014-2015 application requirements and deadlines!
  3. Start requesting your official transcripts and test scores!
  4. Tell your favorite admissions coordinator how much you appreciate them!
    (I’m afraid this won’t affect the outcome of your application, but our coordinators could always use the encouragement!)

Woman using computerEach year, for a variety of reasons, we receive a few repeat applications.

If you wish to reapply to the Bloomberg School, you will need to create a new online application account (including a new login and password) and pay the application fee ($45). 

Pay close attention to the application instructions as our policies sometimes change.

 If you applied within the past two application cycles, you will not need to submit duplicate copies of supporting materials such as transcripts or test scores.  You may, however, wish to submit an updated statement to clearly identify your goals, as well as an updated resume/CV. 

Right now, Admissions is holding materials for those who applied to either the 2012-2013 or 2013-2014 academic year. If you applied before that, you will need to submit all new materials.

If you are a current Bloomberg School student or recent graduate, we should be able to access your original application materials now housed with the Office of Records and Registration.

Those who reapply are required to submit one new letter of recommendation. However, if your previous letters were specific to another department, you may wish to submit all three new ones.

If you completed additional college-level coursework since you last applied, we will require updated transcripts.

Lastly, in the Academic History section of the online application, there is the question "Have you applied to JHSPH previously?"  Please be sure to check "YES" and provide the correct academic year.

Once your application is submitted, our hardworking coordinators will match your old documents with your new electronic file.

Best wishes to you and your new application!

Application unavailable from 9 p.m. Saturday, June 29, 2013 to 5 a.m. Sunday, June 30, 2013.

Our application vendor needs to make a few updates and will take the application system down Saturday night. During the time stated above, you will not be able to access your online application.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

question markWelcome to another edition of our popular monthly series, “What You’re Asking.”

A quick recap:  I scope out emails sent to and tally the most frequently asked questions. I answer a few of the most popular questions in a blog post.

Here we go. . .

When can I apply for the 2014-2015 Academic Year?

The application for Bloomberg School degree programs beginning summer or fall 2014 will open September 1, 2013. Updated application deadlines and requirements will be posted by August.

Can I talk with someone in admissions about the timeframe, courses I’ll be expected to take, and/or possible field work associated with my program of interest?

Our admissions staff are a friendly bunch. They’re happy to chat about the School, its programs and our application process.  You may reach them by email or by calling 410-955-3543 Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 12 noon (we reserve the afternoons for the concentrated processing of applications). 

That said, when it comes to specific questions about a specific program, you would best be served by contacting the academic coordinator listed for your department or program. These folks may be found on the website or you can email us and we’ll help you locate an appropriate contact.

I attended an academic institution in France/Nigeria/India/a place physically located outside of the U.S. Do I really need to have my records evaluated by a credentials evaluation agency?

Yes. We’re in the process of updating the details and that information will be available in August. But in most cases, the answer is still yes.

We hope this helps! Thank you for your questions!
