MPH Courses for Non-degree Students

Nonmatriculated part-time study in the MPH program is available with the course instructor’s permission. Nonmatriculated part-time students are individuals who attend classes and participate fully in a course; complete assignments, papers, or examinations; and receive a transcript attesting to completion of the course, credit hours, and a grade. A nonmatriculated student is limited to no more than two courses per term and a maximum of three courses total. All course requirements will be completed by the end of the term. Exceptions must be negotiated with the course instructor.

Part-time nonmatriculated students pay tuition on a per-course basis. In the event a nonmatriculated student is accepted to and enrolls in a degree program at the Yale School of Public Health, the student is permitted to apply the maximum three courses toward the degree. However, there will be no modification in tuition. Taking YSPH courses as a nonmatriculated student does not guarantee acceptance into any program at the Yale School of Public Health.

To find courses of interest at the School of Public Health, visit Yale Course Search and select the appropriate term as well as “Public Health” from the School dropdown, to view course offerings for that particular term.

Due to the space restrictions as well as health and safety concerns associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, non-degree students are asked to attend courses online only for the spring 2021 term (all courses will offer an online component).
