INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS PLEASE NOTE: Starting in 2019, the Consortium of Eastern Ohio Master of Public Health moved to a webinar/online-based curriculum. Because classes are no longer on campus, we are NOT 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.

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

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