Admission Requirements

Admission requirements for the MS degree include:

  • a baccalaureate degree at a regionally accredited college or university,
  • a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above (or superior endorsement),
  • two letters of reference from individuals who have the oppor­tunity to observe the applicant's work output,
  • official undergraduate and graduate (if applicable) transcripts, and
  • an interview with the chairperson.

It is recommended applicants have a minimum of three years of experience in a health care or health-related organiza­tion as either a practitioner or manager. Applicants who do not meet this requirement may be asked to complete certain under­graduate health systems administration courses as a bridge for the content knowledge required for the graduate program. They may also be required to complete a graduate level internship in health care prior to graduation.

All credentials must be submitted and reviewed by faculty prior to the completion of 12 credit hours of graduate work in the program.
