International Applicants and Visiting Scholars
Faculty & Staff Affairs - College of Public Health

The College of Public Health continually admits and graduates international students. Our international graduates make important global health contributions upon returning to their home communities.

Federal financial opportunities are very limited for international applicants. The College requests that all International students are fully financially independent. As graduate assistantships and other internal financial opportunities become available, admitted students should apply at that time. Refer to the COPH Tuition and Financial Aid web site or your assigned faculty advisor for more information.

Please see the International Admissions Office for more information regarding the USF Graduate School application procedure and financial assistance. All applicants to the College of Public Health are required to complete a SOPHAS application in addition to submitting a USF Graduate School application.
