Coterminal MS Program

Application Instructions

We accept applications to the co-terminal Masters program annually by April 10 of the student’s junior or senior year for admission the following fall. Undergraduates must complete 120 units before they can apply for the co-terminal program.   Under unusual circumstances you may petition to have the Epidemiology Admissions committee review your application after the deadline for applications has passed, but you must have all your application materials completely prepared. If you lose your undergraduate status prior to the completion of the application for the co-terminal MS, you must apply as a regular candidate to the masters program.

Application procedure

  1. Download and fill out the Co-terminal Application Form.
  2. Submit your academic resume or curriculum vitae.
  3. Submit a one page Statement of Purpose describing how and why the Epidemiology masters program is well matched to your interests.
  4. Submit two letters of recommendation (see below).
  5. Submit Stanford transcript

Applicants to the Co-terminal MS programs are not required to submit GRE or TOEFL scores. Applicants are required to submit three letters of recommendation but you may submit more if you feel this enhances your chances of admission. (The form is in the application file from the Registrar's Office.) Faculty can submit the letters directly to us at the address below, or you can submit their letters if sealed and signed across the envelope seal.
