Review our admissions criteria and deadlines:


Funding is not guaranteed with admission. With advanced planning, most new PhD students will find funding through research grants or other non-need based sources for their first year by the time Autumn Quarter begins. First-year funding for MS/MPH students is much less likely, especially without epidemiologic research experience.
