Before you start making any formal application procedures, please contact Dr. Gary Slade to make sure the admission procedures have not changed since this Website was last updated.

Admission criteria are applied equally to all applicants regardless of race, gender, national origin or religion. The University of North Carolina encourages minority students to apply.

Applications to the Graduate School of the University of North Carolina must be made by January 1 for entry into the program in the Fall semester (e.g., the application deadline is January 1, 2014 for entry into the program in Fall 2014). Applicants sending their materials later than the January 1 deadline have limited opportunities for admission. The goal of the Department of Epidemiology is to have all admissions decisions made by April 1 for students to begin classes the following fall semester.
