MPH@GW offers program start dates four times per year, typically in January, April, July and September. Applications are now being accepted for the start dates listed below and admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis.

We asked MPH@GW students for any helpful advice they would give to future applicants. Adrienne Buggs, a current MPH@GW student, responded:

“I would tell them to hurry up and get their application submitted.
As potential applicants begin the process of selecting schools, they will quickly find that the MPH@GW program is rapidly setting the standard for all other MPH programs, online or otherwise.”
