Non-matriculated students are not eligible for financial aid. All MPH courses have limited enrollment; priority and permission are given to matriculated students. The program determines which courses are open to non-matriculated students as well the number of students allowed in each course.
Non-matriculated to Matriculated Application Process.
If the non-matriculated student subsequently wishes to apply to the program, s/he must complete the formal MPH application process (detailed on website), and be accepted based on the delineated criteria. Credits from the courses taken as a non-matriculated student will apply to the student's MPH course credits. An application to become a matriculated student does not guarantee admission.
