Please note that from the day we receive your final document completing your application, it will take a minimum of two weeks for your application to be processed by Admissions Services and sent to the department for review. Once your application is sent for review, please allow anywhere from 6-8 weeks for an admissions decision to be made on your application. You can check for updates by logging onto your online application.
 
Does JHSPH accept transfer credits?

JHSPH does not accept transfer credits. Students may petition a department or program for a waiver of required courses, but a waiver does not exempt students from residency requirements or other academic requirements.

Is it too late to apply?

We have a wide range of application deadlines per department and degree program, so it is essential for you to take note of which deadline pertains to you.

Do I have to take the GRE?

Almost all of our degree programs require the GRE or a comparable test score [GMAT, LSAT, or MCAT] depending on the program area. The institutional code for Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is 5352.

What is the average GRE test score and average GPA?

We do not have a Schoolwide average for test scores or GPA. Your application will be reviewed and considered for admission by the departments in its entirety, not solely based on these factors. However, each department may have their own policies and regulations based on the application cycle. Please contact your department of interest for more information.

How can I set up a visit to JHSPH?

Admissions Services offers guided tours on selected Fridays in every month. We also encourage you to contact the department of your interest to request meetings with faculty, staff and current students as well as inquire about visiting a class.
