Application Process

Admissions Office Correspondence with Candidates

Unless otherwise stated, virtually all correspondence is conducted via email.  Please be certain that you are able to receive emails from "@tu.edu" addresses and be sure to monitor your junk mail folder.

We have noticed several occasions where email messages are not delivered to hotmail.com or other Microsoft owned/sponsored domains.  To ensure you do not miss important messages, we strongly recommend that you create an email account using Gmail or other similar services.

Rolling Admissions Cycle

The Master of Science in Medical Health Sciences program utilizes a rolling admissions cycle, which means applications are reviewed and decisions are rendered throughout the admissions cycle until the class is full.  A waitlist will be utilized to fill openings as they occur following the close of the application cycle.

Application Submission

Applications for this program are submitted through PostBacCAS, the central application service for post-baccalaureate/master's programs.  Before beginning the application, make certain you have access to transcripts from all colleges attended, contact information for those who will be writing your letters of recommendation, and standardized test scores (if applicable).  Interfolio Users may request that letters of recommendation be sent to PostBacCAS using Dossier Deliver.  Please refer to the Interfolio website for how this is done.  Please also make certain to compile information regarding your research, clinical, employment, and volunteer experiences.

Application materials will be accepted up to the close of business on June 1st, 2019 but applicants are advised to apply early.

Application Review and Decisions

When all application materials have been received and verified, the applicant file is forwarded to the Admissions Committee for review.  The Committee will determine whether the candidate is to be accepted, wait-listed, or denied.  Notifications will be made via email and/or US Mail within approximately three weeks of the submission of all required application materials.  Accepted candidates will be required to secure their seat in the cohort by returning a response form and required non-refundable deposit.
