Must meet University requirements (see Graduate Admissions ) as well as requirements for admission to the major, listed below.
All applicants must take the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) or have taken an equivalent admissions examination within the five years preceding application and must meet the following criteria.
GRE or equivalent (GMAT, MCAT, DATE, or PCAT) required. LSAT is not accepted in lieu of the GRE. GRE scores will be compared to the applicant pool and national GRE norms.
- Applicants who have a terminal degrees such as the PhD, ScD or EdD, and those with advanced professional degrees (MD, DDS, DO, DVM, JD, PharmD, DPT) from accredited institutions and who are individually licensed in the United States in their profession may request to waive the GRE (https://usfhealth.box.com/s/ievl84vasytoc20u3s9xsw59r44fdiyk). The GRE waiver is not automatic and must be approved by the College of Public Health.
- Applicants admitted to the M.H.A. or M.P.H. who have a score on the GRE Verbal or Analytical Writing test which is below the 40th percentile may be required to take REA 2105–Critical Reading and Writing–or an equivalent English composition course, during the first semester of enrollment, with a grade of “B” or better in the course.
Meeting of these criteria per se shall not be the only basis for admission.
