Arnold School of Public Health

Change of Major

Are you a current student at USC who would like to join the Arnold School? We can help!

If you are currently enrolled in another college on the Columbia campus, you must apply to change your major to the Arnold School of Public Health.

The next round of applications will be considered for Spring 2023 admission. 

If you need assistance making immediate academic plans, please see an Exploratory Advisor in the University Advising Center located in the Close-Hipp Building. 


Students must attend an Arnold School of Public Health New Major Information Session prior to applying. Sessions will be offered during the Fall 2022 semester. 


The ASPH admissions policy is based on the following guidelines:
  1.  Students must have a minimum UofSC cumulative GPA of 2.75 and a minimum of 12 earned UofSC Columbia credit hours. 
  2. Students must attend an ASPH New Major Information Session and submit a Change of Major Application.
  3. Applications will NOT be accepted after deadlines.
