How to Apply

Apply Now

Applications to most master's or doctoral programs are submitted through SOPHAS, the online centralized application service for schools of public health. Before applying, read the SOPHAS FAQs. Complete applications are processed and reviewed as soon as received. You will expedite the review of your application by submitting all required documentation to SOPHAS as soon as possible.

Applicants to the MHA program may also apply through HAMPCAS.

Tulane undergraduate BSPH students may apply to the combined degree program using an internal electronic application.

SPHTM admits student to MPH, MSPH and MPH&TM degrees for the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. The Master of Health Administration program admits students into a cohort only in the fall semester. Doctoral students matriculate in the fall semester; however, applications are accepted year-round.

We welcome applications throughout the year. To provide adequate time for the processing of the application and financial aid, we recommend you submit a completed application to SOPHAS early, at least three months prior to the semester you wish to enroll.

For doctoral applicants to be considered for Dean’s Scholarships, applications must be submitted by December 1 the year prior to matriculation. Scholarship offers are made in February.

Please note that SOPHAS closes and does not accept applications for two weeks in August. This help page contains more information about SOPHAS re-applicant procedures.
