Applications for admission to the Master of Public Health (MPH) degree in the Department of Health are accepted at any time. Please contact Marlaina Kloepfer,MS,College of Health Sciences Graduate Recruiter at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.The following materials are required from all applicants:
The applicant is responsible for assuring that all necessary materials are received by the Office of Graduate Studies by the recommended application deadlines. While the Department of Health accepts applications at any time, a student's ability to schedule desired courses may be impacted by the timing of application processing. All application materials become the property of West Chester University and may not be returned or forwarded to another institution.
Please be aware that an undergraduate statistics course is a prerequisite for two core courses in the MPH program. Students may begin the MPH Program (without the undergraduate statistics requirement) if other academic requirements are met, however students will be admitted under provisional status. To remove the provisional status and be eligible to register for HEA 520 and HEA526, proof of statistics course completion or the Statistics Competency Examination score is needed by submitting a copy of a transcript or score to the Department of Health and the Office of Graduate Studies.The Statistics Competency Examination is held by Dr. Stacie Metz (email@example.com).
Students who complete HEA520 and HEA526 without the undergraduate statistics course will not able to obtain Degree Candidacy and will remain in provisional status. We strongly encourage students to complete this undergraduate course as soon as possible. If students do not obtain Degree Candidacy they will not be able to complete the degree.
The Office of Graduate Studies (firstname.lastname@example.org) collects application materials as they are received. When a student's file is complete, and not before, the application is sent to the Department of Health. Departmental faculty evaluate the application then recommend either full or provisional matriculation or denial, as appropriate, to the Graduate Dean. A student is admitted to graduate study at West Chester University only after final action by the Graduate Dean.
