Application Review and Admissions Process
Details of Process
Each degree and certificate program has its own admissions committee composed of faculty members from that area of study.
The committees review completed applications for evidence of the applicant’s intent and purpose in studying public health, past academic performance, program-specific academic potential, professional and life experience, English fluency (where required), and other factors such as an applicant’s compatibility with faculty expertise and program directions.
Selected applicants to the Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) program may also be invited for an interview.
Length of Process and Notification Procedure
This process may take up to six weeks in the peak application season of December/January. At other times, committees may make admission decisions more quickly.
All applicants are notified of the committee’s decision via email and/or letter.
The University of Minnesota is committed to the policy that all persons shall have equal access to its programs, facilities, and employment without regard to race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, age, marital status, disability, public assistance status, veteran status, or sexual orientation.
Admitted applicants will be directed to our Admissions website to make their decision on our admission offer. Those accepting admission will be required to make a $250.00 non-refundable admission deposit, which will be applied towards their student account at the beginning of their admission term.
