          How to Apply to a JHSPH Certificate Program as a JHU Student

Application Procedures and Deadlines

All graduate degree students at JHU who wish to apply to one or more certificate programs must review the table of application procedures and deadlines below. Students already enrolled in graduate degree programs at JHU are not required to complete the School's electronic admissions application, but most certificate programs do require notification prior to beginning certificate coursework.  

Certificate programs are generally offered throughout the academic year; however due to when required courses are offered, some certificate programs may have particular start terms. Unless a specific deadline for applications is listed below, certificate programs will accept students on a rolling basis throughout the year.  

NOTE: JHU degree students who do not complete their certificate program by the time of graduating from their degree program will need to apply to the certificate program as a non-degree student in order to complete the certificate program after graduation.

NOTE: Students enrolled in MAS degree programs are not eligible to apply to JHSPH certificate programs until they have completed their degree program.
