Admission and Degree Requirements


Admission criteria established by the UCLA Graduate Division require a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution comparable in standard and content to a bachelor’s degree from the University of California. A scholastic grade-point average of B (3.0 on a 4.0 scale) or better is required — or its equivalent if the letter grade system is not used — for the last 60 semester units or last 90 quarter units of undergraduate study and in any postbaccalaureate study. Additional requirements for international students are explained in the Graduate Study chapter.

Applicants must submit their application to both the centralized Schools of Public Health Application Service (SOPHAS) and UCLA Graduate Division. For additional admission requirements, see the school application web page.
