Admission to the MHA Program will be based on selections from a pool of applicants
who meet the minimum undergraduate GPA and aptitude examination scores. All applicants must submit scores for the verbal plus quantitative components of
the Graduate Records Examination (GRE) or the Graduate Management Aptitude Test (GMAT)
unless waived by the Graduate School and the MHA faculty. Millers Analogy Test (MAT) scores are not accepted for admission consideration.
Significant weight is given to the following factors in determining admissions to
the Professional Degree Programs:
- An undergraduate grade point average on a four-point scale from an accredited college
- GRE or GMAT aptitude (verbal plus quantitative plus analytical writing) total score.
- Letters of recommendation from at least two persons (at least one academic) familiar with the applicant’s academic background or experience in health administration, specifying in detail the applicant’s capabilities for graduate study
and for future performance as a health administrator.
- A statement of approximately 500-750 words indicating the applicant’s present interests
and career goals, including why the applicant wants the MHA degree.
- Resume' containing information of the student’s education and experience.
Selection for admission from among the pool of qualified applicants will be made by
the Program faculty. An MHA Admissions Committee, comprised of the MHA Coordinator of Graduate Studies
and at least two faculty members from the MHA Program, will review applicants and
make recommendations for admission to the MHA Program. If the MHA Admissions Committee cannot reach consensus, the admission decision will
be made by the MHA Program Faculty.
A student admitted to the University may be denied admission into the MHA Program
for justifiable cause. The student may be required by the Admissions Committee to take undergraduate course
work prior to his/her admission to the program. Graduate credit is not allowed for courses taken to make up academic deficiencies. Students denied admission to the MHA Program may reapply for admission when they
have completed the recommended undergraduate courses with satisfactory grades.
