Admission Requirements

Application Process

Once an application is submitted, our admissions coordinator will review your application to ensure all information and supporting documents have been received. Every application must be marked complete before it can be reviewed by our admissions committee. A complete application consists of the following:

  • Submitted Application and Fee
    • Resume
    • Transcripts
    • Statement of Purpose
  • Timeline
    • We review applications right away and make rolling admissions based on bi-weekly admissions meetings. Admissions decisions are made within 2-4 weeks of submitting your application. Applications submitted around the winter holidays may experience delays.

Application Components

  • Note that the application process is completed entirely online. Please do not mail any application materials to our office.
  • The online application will ask for personal information such as your address, Social Security number, country of citizenship and date of birth.
  • The application includes several questions used to determine residency status for tuition purposes. All students should complete these questions regardless of current or former location. For more information about determining your residency status, please contact the Office of Residency.
  • After submitting the application, you can verify that all materials have been received by logging into the application portal.
  • ALL application requirements must be received and processed by the deadline for consideration.

Start Your Application

MHA applicants must have completed the equivalent of a four-year U.S. bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university.

International applicants holding a three-year bachelor’s degree should contact the International Admissions office to determine if additional coursework will be needed before applying to a graduate program.

  • The average cumulative GPA for our accepted MHA students is a 3.50. Consideration will be made for applicants with less than a 3.25 GPA if they have extraordinary items in the rest of their application. These items may include:
    • Good GRE or GMAT scores that are above the 50th percentile in all of the categories.
    • Strong letters of recommendations from healthcare professionals or prominent people.
    • Specific work experience that has prepared the applicant for the MHA program.
    • Other factors that would distinguish the applicant and demonstrate that they could succeed in the MHA program and do well in their career.
  • If your GPA is below a 3.25, please schedule an appointment with the Admissions Coordinator below.
