How to apply

Applicants apply through SOPHAS, a centralized public health application platform used by most schools and programs of public health. The SOPHAS application fee can be found on the SOPHAS website. Oregon State requires a supplemental application in addition to SOPHAS. After the application deadline, the supplemental application will be sent to you via email. The supplemental application fee is $75 for domestic students and $85 for international students.

Current public health practitioners and other professionals interested in pursuing professional development may be interested in the online graduate certificate in public health.
