Residential (on campus) degree programs use SOPHAS for the application. You will need to create an account on SOPHAS in order to apply. 
Materials required in SOPHAS:

  • Official transcripts sent directly to SOPHAS from all institutions attended
  • A personal statement that clearly and directly address the following:
    • Why are you applying to Tulane SPHTM, and the specific program/option/concentration you chose?
    • How will earning this degree help you achieve your professional goals?
    • What have you learned from successes and/or challenges in your past educational, professional, and/or personal experiences? Please use specific examples, as applicable.
  • Resume/CV
  • Minimum of 2 letters of recommendation (3 required for PhD)

All application materials must be received in SOPHAS in order for your application to be reviewed.

Earned your degree abroad? International students (or students who have earned their degree outside the US or Canada) must submit a WES evaluation of international coursework. WES evaluations can take a month to complete from the time WES receives your international transcript(s), so we recommend getting an early start on this process in order to ensure the WES evaluation is received in SOPHAS by the deadline for which you are applying. To start this process, please click here and select SOPHAS from the dropdown list. If you already have an international credential evaluation completed by another company such as ECE, please email us at sphtmadmissions@tulane.edu
 

Online Programs

Online programs have separate deadline dates.

Online degree programs use the Tulane Fastlane application (scroll down to Submit an Application). Once you have created an account in Fastlane, select School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine and then select your desired program.
Materials required in Fastlane:

  • A personal statement that clearly and directly address the following:
    • Why are you applying to Tulane SPHTM, and the specific program/option/concentration you chose?
    • How will earning this degree help you achieve your professional goals?
    • What have you learned from successes and/or challenges in your past educational, professional, and/or personal experiences? Please use specific examples, as applicable.
  • Resume/CV
  • Minimum of 2 letters of recommendation
