Application Procedures for Graduate Students
Application to the MPH program is a two-step process. All applicants must apply to and be accepted by the NMSU Graduate School. At the same time, you must apply to the MPH program by completing the appropriate application and submitting it directly to the Department of Public Health Sciences. Please note that there are two different departmental application forms; one for the on-campus MPH program, and one for the online MPH program. The online MPH program is intended primarily for New Mexico residents, and secondarily for residents of the Southwest United States. Both on-campus and online applications are reviewed by the admissions committee. Please see below for application deadlines. NOTE: Regardless of the program you enter you are required to attend the MPH orientation scheduled prior to the beginning of classes (date to be determined). In addition, for admitted students receiving a graduate assistantship both the department and the graduate school will have their own mandatory orientation (Graduate School typically hosts their orientation on the Monday prior to classes).
We only accept students for Fall semester. Applications for on-campus admission are due February 15th; on-line applications are due March 15th. Graduate Assistantship applications are due March 1. Unofficial transcripts are acceptable for the review process, however, the Graduate School will require official transcripts showing completion of the undergraduate degree prior to admittance.
