Public Health Application (BS)

Apply to the Public Health Program

Thank you for your interest in the York College Public Health Program.

Public Health at York College is a limited enrollment program (LEP). At the time of admission, students who choose to declare a major in public health must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 for all coursework completed and at least 12 credits with a minimum GPA of 3.0 in the following PH courses: PH 201 and PH 210 or PH 215 or PH 225 or PH 320 or PH 330 or PH 340.

While the program accepts applications on a rolling basis, cohorts are admitted to begin in the fall semester each academic year.  Thus, while students may apply and be accepted in the winter, spring, or summer, cohort coursework will not begin until the following fall.

Potential candidates are recommended to apply in the fall or spring semester directly before they plan be admitted to the major (this is the semester in which the student is most likely completing the program prerequisite coursework).

In completing this application, please be sure to answer all questions and provide all materials. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding your application, please contact the program at

**If you are completing an associate degree in public health at BMCC, QCC, or LGCC (CUNY) as part of an articulation agreement, you do not need to complete this application.**
