Students are strongly encouraged to complete most, if not all, of the MPH core course requirements in the first year. 

Students may petition for exemption from any course for which they can demonstrate competency. Only the instructor for the course can grant an exemption. Student should check with instructor for requirements, and if exempted, have instructor sign form (available on YSPH website), then submit the form to the YSPH registrar. Another course will need to be taken to complete the number of required course units for the MPH degree. 

Full-time student status is considered 4 course units or more per term.
