Note About COVID-19

Due to the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on communities in Georgia, nationally and abroad, all on-campus activities have been suspended for the summer months. Therefore, all summer events listed below are scheduled to occur virtually. Recorded sessions of each event will be made available for those unable to speak with us live.

The University of Georgia is expected to resume on-campus activities in the fall, including classes. In anticipation of the return to campus, we are including in-person activities for the fall and spring semesters. However, we do realize that many people may still be concerned about traveling and/or visiting campus, so virtual sessions have also been added to accommodate those concerns. Should you have any questions, please reach out to the CPH admissions team at mph@uga.edu.
