All applications for the Master of Public Health program are submitted online to the Colorado School of Public Health through the Schools of Public Health Application Service (SOPHAS). No required admissions documents should be sent directly to Colorado State University. Individuals can choose up to two concentrations within the MPH program and these are considered as a first and second choice. Applicants are not reviewed for both simultaneously. The second choice is considered if an applicant is seen as admissible, but cannot be offered admission to their first choice.
The preferred application deadline is January 15. Those whose applications aren’t reviewable until after January 15 may miss out on some financial aid opportunities. An application is determined to be reviewable once all required documentation is received and verified by SOPHAS. Applicants should plan accordingly knowing that it can take SOPHAS up to 4 weeks to verify an application.
