Admission Requirements

The MS in Applied Health Informatics accepts applicants for admission each summer.  The program admission requirements are as follows:

  • A baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university
  • An overall 3.0 undergraduate GPA
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • Essay demonstrating an in-depth understanding of, and commitment to, this dynamic profession
All applications are carefully reviewed by the Applied Health Informatics Admissions Committee and applicants with the most competitive academic preparation are invited for a personal interview. Candidates are evaluated on a variety of factors including, but not limited to, academic achievement, references, communication skills, and knowledge of profession.

Note: Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is not required for admission

For applicants with an overall GPA less than 3.0 but substantive coursework (minimum of 14 credits) that is directly applicable to the study of health informatics, applications will be evaluated by faculty based on the GPA of this coursework to be considered for conditional admission. If by the completion of the first enrolled semester, a conditionally admitted student is able to maintain a 3.0 graduate GPA, the applicant will be recommended for full admission to the master’s degree program.
