- A baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university. A GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale is necessary to be competitive. Previous graduate work should reflect a GPA of 3.0 or above.
* If the applicant does not have a combined GPA of 3.0 from all post-secondary schools, a competitive score on the GRE or the GMAT is required. A GRE score of 1000 (verbal + quantitative) or a GRE score of 301 on the current GRE, and 4 or higher on the analytical section; or GMAT score of 500 suggests a student's ability to be successful in the program.
- Three reference forms from individuals who can comment on your professional background, academic capabilities, and motivation. (Applicants provide the email address of three individuals on the application, and the recommendation form is electronically sent to those individuals to complete.)
- Applicants should have working knowledge of word processing, spreadsheets, presentation software, and databases.
Eligibility for admission is based on the GPA, the GRE or GMAT, the personal statement, work experience, interviews, resume, and references. One or more years of healthcare or IT work experience is preferred but not essential.
Qualified candidates may be interviewed by the Admissions Committee and/or program director; the interviews will be held in person or via distance.
