Student Life


Because the advisor-student relationship is so beneficial to the student's academic progress and career planning, MyPublicHealthDirect students are assigned an advisor immediately upon acceptance to the program. Students will meet virtually or in person with their advisor before beginning the program to discuss course enrollment and sequencing and answer any questions about how to register for courses. This advisor will be in contact with the student throughout the completion of the program.

Student Organizations

Participating in student organizations builds career skills and professional networks. Student groups in the School of Public Health-Bloomington welcome online students’ participation.
