The minimum academic requirements for admission are as follows:

  • A bachelor's degree from a regionally-accredited college/university,
  • At least a 3.00 or higher undergraduate/graduate weighted mean GPA*
  • Complete an internal certificate application
  • Registration options:
    • Option 1: Enroll in a graduate program. If you are a matriculated student in a graduate program you must receive permission from your home program to earn the certificate. Please submit the agreement form to Hailey McCormick after permission is granted.
    • Option 2: Enroll as seeking second bachelors. If you do not have a graduate program, you must apply through the Office of Admissions as seeking second bachelors, i. Intended Major – undecided
  • International Students
  • International students must have an H visa to be eligible for the certificate program if a graduate program is not indicated. F1 or J1 visas are only acceptable if the student is in a graduate program. Students who hold an F1 or J1 visa and do not have a graduate program are not eligible for the certificate programs.

After all of the steps have been completed, your file will be reviewed and you will be contacted by the Division of Public Health. 

*Please note our deadlines are later than the University of Utah Admissions office and you will be responsible for any late fees.

The certificate is granted through the Division of Public Health; therefore, tuition and fees fall under the resident and non-resident tuition rates of the Division of Public Health.
