Admission Requirements

Students must be a high school graduate or hold a general equivalency diploma (GED).

Students holding an associate/bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution, with a minimum GPA of 2.3, will be considered for program admission. Students without an associate/bachelor’s degree will be considered for admission provided they have earned 60 or more transferable credit hours, with a minimum GPA of 2.3, and have completed the following general education coursework: Natural Sciences (6 credit hours), ENG 101 or equivalent (3 credit hours), Mathematics (3 credit hours), and Social and/or Behavioral Sciences (3 credit hours). 

Students must have one year prior healthcare experience or be currently employed in healthcare. Students without prior experience or current healthcare employment will be required to complete HCA 404, Healthcare Administration Practicum, as a graduation requirement. Students who may become employed in healthcare while enrolled in the program will not be required to complete the practicum experience. 

The program does not require a physical examination and proof of immunization. However, if a student enrolls in HCA 404, Healthcare Administration Practicum, a physical examination and proof of immunization may be a requirement of the practicum site. Furthermore, students are expected to meet all additional practicum requirements before placement.
