After a snowy, slushy February, we have sprung into March!

We have a number of events over the next couple weeks you should know about:

RESCHEDULED 2015 Public Health Career Fair

The Public Health Career Fair, originally scheduled for March 6, was cancelled because of inclement weather. It has been rescheduled for THURSDAY, MARCH 26. You should come! The fair is open to area graduate students and JHSPH alumni. Over fifty employers will attend!

New date for Career Fair

2015 Recruitment Calendar

We are steady adding events to our spring recruitment schedule. Over the next two months, Bloomberg School representatives will be at various venues in Baltimore, Maryland; Washington, DC; Boston, Massachusetts; California and Saudi Arabia. Check out our calendar to see if we’ll be near you!

Admitted Student Events

A number of opportunities exist for admitted students to learn more about our school, community and city. Two Admitted Student Visitors Days are scheduled for March and April. Eight virtual information sessions are scheduled between now and May. Dates, event descriptions and registration may be found on the Admitted Student Website (login and password required).

As always, feel free to contact us with any questions.

We hope to see you soon!

Flag at Ft. McHenryAre you an admitted student eligible for veterans’ educational benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs?

If so, those benefits are administered for Bloomberg School students by the Office of Records and Registration. That office has asked us to let you know about the detailed instructions they’ve posted on their website for applying for benefits from the V.A.

There are instructions for your initial enrollment and future re-enrollments, information regarding standards of progress and tuition assistance. There is also a Resource Toolkit.

Welcome veterans! And thank you for your service!

It doesn’t seem possible, but Fall Orientation is less than a month away!

Are you ready?

If you’re a new student starting this fall, check out the Orientation section of the Admitted Student website (login and password required). There you will find a checklist, information on parking, a tentative agenda and much more!

Don’t forget to double check when you’re expected to attend. We break Fall Orientation down by departments and you likely only need report two of the three days.

Fall Orientation August 27-29, 2014
- BMB, EHS, Epi, HBS and IH only August 27
- Biostat, HPM, MH, MMI and PFRH only August 28
- All departments August 29

We look forward to seeing you!

Are you an incoming student?

Young woman registering for IOLDo you plan to take a combination of online and on-campus courses?

If so, I have a very important message for you.

All Bloomberg School students must take Introduction to Online Learning (IOL) before enrolling in an online course. IOL is a free, non-credit, online mini course and it’s offered once a month for most of the year.

For additional details including course description, objectives and assignments, review the online IOL syllabus.

Please note: IOL is not required for those taking courses through Coursera.

application files with final documentsIn a few very specific circumstances, applicants are admitted without submitting final official documents.

Maybe they were in the process of finishing their degree and submitted “in-progress” transcripts. Perhaps their department granted an exception and reviewed their file with unofficial test scores. Whatever the reason, before beginning a degree program, applicants must submit final, official documents.

This isn’t just our rule, it’s a federal one.

All students must submit final documents, but if you receive federal aid, this rule has additional meaning. Federal law requires students to submit complete application records prior to receiving federal loan disbursements. If your application file is incomplete as determined by Bloomberg School admissions standards at the time of a disbursement, a hold will be placed on your financial aid disbursement until the School receives all required documents.

How do you know if your application is complete?

  1. Students admitted to the 2014-2015 academic year should log in to their online application.
  2. Look under "Other Supporting Documents."
  3. If you see “Not Received” it means you need to submit a final transcript, official transcript or official credentials evaluation.
