Fee Assistance

All application fees are charged directly by SOPHAS, the centralized application service for the schools of public health. SOPHAS charges $145 for the first program you apply to and $55 for each additional program. There are a number of programs available to reduce the cost of applying.

SOPHAS Fee Waiver Program

SOPHAS offers a limited number of financial-based, service-based, and international-based fee waivers to eligible applicants. Waivers are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, so applicants are encouraged to apply early.
