The application process to SOPHAS is quite lengthy, so we encourage you to apply early!

This page has helpful information on what you'll need to assemble your application.

3. Submit your SOPHAS application.
You can submit your application before SOPHAS has officially received all of your materials. Applicants are encouraged to submit their applications as soon as they have entered their course work and personal statement. The rest of your application materials, including GRE scores and letters of recommendation, can be added to your application after it has been submitted.  
4. We receive your application.
Upon receiving your application (approximately two weeks about submission) from SOPHAS, we will send you a confirmation email and if necessary, request any additional materials to complete our evaluation. Check your application status here.
5. Your application is reviewed.
To ensure the best possible candidates for our program, we have created specialized review committees in each of our departments. Most applicants can expect an application decision in 10 business days. If you have any questions about the strength of your application, we encourage you to contact the department representative.  

While the college has a priority and a final deadline, all applicants are encouraged to apply before the priority deadline. 

Applications made to SOPHAS can take up to four (4) weeks to be processed and released to the college.  Average SOPHAS processing time is two (2) weeks.
