As part of my major, I have to take 15 credits at our graduate school. The grad school credits work a little different than out undergrad credits in that 3 grad credits = 2 undergrad credits. Would I include these credits in my undergrad cGPA or would I write them as if I went to grad school but never did a full degree?

I was in a similar boat, as I was in a 4+1 MPH program and had to take a few graduate level courses during undergrad. The graduate level courses I took during undergrad ended up counting towards my undergrad cGPA. The remainder of my MPH classes I took post-grad were counted towards my graduate GPA. I think that those classes would just count towards your undergrad cGPA, because you were an undergrad at the time you took them. I may be wrong about this, so it would be great if others could also share their experiences and perspectives. Best of luck preparing your application!

Since they are required for your UG degree, they get counted as part of uGPA. As for credits, how are the credits assigned to you? how are they weighted on your school's GPA

That is about right. specifically if the grad course work counts towards a UG degree, it is part of uGPA. If you took grad courses while a UG but they didnt count to UG degree, they would would be grad GPA
