How Do I Apply?

We’re so glad that you’re interested in pursuing a Public Health degree! Details on the application process and fee waivers can be found here. We encourage students to begin their applications early so that they have adequate time to prepare. The last day to submit is November 30. Prior to application, please confirm that all admission requirements (freshman or transfer) have been satisfied. Additional undergraduate admissions information is available here. Transfer students who wish to major in Public Health should complete the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) at their community college. Transfer students may not be admitted to the Public Health major without specific major preparation.

If you are a current UC Merced student who would like to declare a Public Health major, change to a Public Health major, or declare a Public Health minor, details can be found here. We encourage students to meet with their BAC academic advisor before making these changes.
