About 12% of students at SPH are from countries other than the United States. They are an important part of our community and make valuable contributions. Applicants who are not citizens or permanent residents of the United States do have additional considerations and steps to complete when applying to a program at UM SPH. As a result, it is extremely important for these applicants to submit an application early.

The hard deadline for applications from international students is January 15th.
