SOPHAS Course Subjects

HOW SOPHAS COURSE SUBJECTS WORK

SOPHAS uses a standardized list of course subjects which cover the majority of classes you may be taking. SOPHAS uses these subjects to then determine which Course Subject GPA Category your courses will factor into. If you cannot determine which SOPHAS Subject to choose based on your course’s title, please default to the department the course is offered through. During the verification process, SOPHAS will change any SOPHAS Subjects which it deems have been incorrectly listed. Your application will not be undelivered for listing the incorrect SOPHAS Subject.

UNDERSTAND: There are many more SOPHAS Subjects to choose from when entering your coursework than in previous application cycles in order to assist you in filling out the coursework section. However, the Course Subject GPA Categories REMAIN THE SAME. Below we have listed which SOPHAS Course Subjects factor into each Course Subject GPA.

The list below has been created in conjunction with the Association for Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH), which has determined which SOPHAS Subjects factor into which Course Subject GPAs. Please use this list to understand how your SOPHAS Course Subjects will factor into your Course Subject GPAs.

IMPORTANT: If you disagree with a SOPHAS Subject given to you during the verification process, please see the “Verification: Grade Point Average (GPA) Calculations” section for detailed instructions on how to properly dispute a course subject decision. Please note that you can only dispute the subject assigned to your course. You can NOT dispute which GPA that subject factors into, as that has been predetermined.
