Statement of Intent
Applicants must include a statement of professional interest and related goals in public health not to exceed 1000 words in length. This statement of professional interest must include the following:
In the application, you will need to identify your previous institutions attended. You will also need to contact those institutions and request official copies of your transcripts to be sent to Saginaw Valley State University.
All transcripts must be sent from university to university. For expedited processing, please select e-delivery and when possible send them to our Grad Admissions office: firstname.lastname@example.org
SVSU alumni do not need to request official transcripts as they will already be part of your student record.
Before you submit your application, you will be prompted to add recommendation providers. You will be asked to provide the contact information for each of your one (1) recommender. Upon receiving this information, Graduate Admissions will email your recommendation providers with an online recommendation form that can be completed and submitted electronically.
This recommendation requirement is WAIVED for graduates of SVSU's undergraduate Public Health program.
SVSU's MPH offers admission each Fall semester.
Each year the MPH's application will open on November 1 and close the following August 1, with the new class beginning coursework in the Fall semester.
If you are new to SVSU or haven't applied since 2018, please complete the option to create your account.
If you have recently applied to SVSU (since August 2018), please log in as an existing user. If you don't remember your login credentials, select Forgot Username/Password to continue. Please note that your application credentials are not tied to the SVSU system and would remain the unique username/password used in your previous application.
Application forms and all application requirements must be submitted in order for the application to be reviewed for admission.
If you have any questions about the application process, please contact the Graduate Admissions at (989) 964.6096 or email email@example.com.
