(PHILADELPHIA) - JCPH and Rutgers University–Camden (RUC) recently signed an affiliation agreement that facilitates priority admission of RUC students to the JSPH Master of Public Health (MPH) degree program.  RUC students graduating with a bachelor’s degree who meet certain criteria with respect to GPA and previous coursework will be assured a space in the MPH program and will automatically be considered for merit-based scholarships. Eligible RUC students also have the opportunity to take certain courses in the MPH program during their junior and senior years at a reduced tuition rate.  Students who take designated RUC graduate level courses while completing their undergraduate degree at RUC are eligible to transfer these courses directly into the MPH program, thereby reducing both the time and cost of completing the MPH degree.
