For undergraduate admission, fill out an online application.
There are three ways to apply for admission to our graduate programs at the Saint Louis University College for Public Health & Social Justice:
1. Saint Louis University's online application
2. Schools of Public Health Application Service (SOPHAS)
A centralized application service allowing you to apply to multiple schools of public health with one application to save on both time and cost savings.
3. If you are interested in applying to our Master of Health Administration program, you may use the Healthcare Administration, Management & Policy Centralized Application Service (HAMPCAS). This service also allows you to apply to multiple schools using one application.
Dual Degree Admission
Applicants of any of our dual degree programs (i.e., the dual degree programs with medicine, law, social work, nursing, business or nutrition and dietetics) must apply to the non-College for Public Health & Social Justice college/school or program separately. Dual degree applicants may apply to the College for Public Health & Social Justice using SLU's online application, the SOPHAS service or the HAMPCAS service.

Application Requirements for Masters and Doctoral Applicants:
If you are applying through SOPHAS or HAMPCAS you will not need to send any documents directly to SLU, send them all directly to those services.
- A report of your GRE, GMAT, MCAT or LSAT scores (The test requirement is only waived for applicants with a doctoral degree from a U.S. university or for physicians with a license to practice medicine in the U.S. or who have, at a minimum, been accepted in to a residency program)
- Official transcripts from all academic work beyond secondary level
- A 1-2 page double-spaced essay describing your interests in the field, your career goals and objectives, and how the planned degree will benefit you (if applying for the PhD program please include a detailed description of your research interests so we can determine if we have a suitable faculty mentor for you)
- A copy of your resume or curriculum vitae including all your current contact information
- Three letters of recommendation from individuals qualified to write about your potential success in a graduate program. If you are currently a student or a recent graduate, at least one letter must be from one of your professors, preferably two or all three. If you have been out of school for a while, we strongly recommend that you attempt to get at least one academic reference letter.
