All policies are documented in the Program's Academic Handbook and Orientation Handbook, found below. These can also be accessed by current students by logging into our Learning Management System, OWL.

Our policies are derived from Western's School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Regulations, which can be found on the Western Graduate & Postdoctoral Studies website.

Deferral Policy

The Master of Public Health Program at Western University does not grant requests to defer offers of admission. Applicants who cannot accept their offer of admission are encouraged to apply for the next admissions cycle and note on their application that they received an offer of admission the previous year.
