Applications to the UNT Health Science Center School of Public Health are reviewed holistically. Applicants are encouraged to submit their strongest application as each applicant and application will only be reviewed once a cycle. Upon submission of your application, there is between 4-8 weeks before you can anticipate a response to your application. In that time, all requested items must reach the application service. This includes recommendations, official transcripts, and test scores.

Once applications have been verified, application materials will be sent on to UNTHSC School of Public Health. You will receive an automated email when your application reaches our system. SPH Admissions will then process and review the application before presenting it to our Faculty Admission Committee. We appreciate your patience as your application is taken through this process.
