INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS PLEASE NOTE: For the upcoming 2019 cohort, the Consortium of Eastern Ohio Master of Public Health is moving to a webinar/online-based curriculum. Because classes will no longer be 50% on the campus, we will NOT be able to issue student visas so that you can study in the U.S. We can still accept students with international credentials if you have an immigrant-type visa (including permanent resident alien, conditional permanent resident, temporary resident, refugees and asylees, temporary protected status, and parolees) as well as certain non-immigrant statuses, including H, K, N, T, U, and V. Email for questions.

Admission Requirements

All admission application materials are collected and processed through the CEOMPH program office at the Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED).

Tuition and Financial Support

Tuition is uniform for CEOMPH students and may differ from other university programs; university fees (other than tuition) will differ among the universities.


Students wishing to apply for the program that do not have a U.S. or U.S. equivalent masters or doctoral degree must take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Students wishing to apply for the program that have international credentials must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) exam.

International Student Resources

Resources are available at each of the consortium universities to international students.
