Minimum Admission Requirements
- A Bachelor’s Degree*
- GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale**
- GMAT or GRE scores***
- At least two years of supervisory experience (preferred)
- Practicing physicians may be admitted without the GMAT/GRE or supervisory requirement
* Students with degrees other than health administration or business administration may be required to take leveling courses in statistics, economics and accounting. These courses, if required, must be completed prior to enrolling in MHA 6200 and/or MHA 6320 .
** Applicants below the minimum required GPA may be considered. Please provide an explanation of circumstances regarding your GPA.
*** Significant weight is given to GRE aptitude (verbal and quantitative reasoning) with scores of at least 153 and 144, respectively. The GMAT aptitude score should be at least 500. However, indications of academic ability as expressed by undergraduate grade point average and professional experience will be of greater importance than specific undergraduate background and GRE or GMAT scores. Students considering an additional MBA should take the GMAT.
This requirement may be waived for applicants with 5 or more years of healthcare experience. Practicing physicians and others holding a Master’s, Law, or Doctoral degree may be admitted without the GMAT/GRE or supervisory requirement.
To receive a Master of Health Administration degree, the student must complete all courses in the MHA program (including required leveling courses) with a grade of “C” or higher, and maintain an overall program GPA of 2.7 or higher.
