Please contact us if you're unsure of your student type. The application process is different for each student type. Follow the application instructions detailed on the application page for your student type.

Note: Admission to the HIHIM program is competitive, with preference given to students who've completed the prerequisite coursework by the time they apply, have a strong GPA and statement of purpose, and have relevant volunteer or work experience. Please read the requirements carefully before applying. 

Early and General Acceptance

The HIHIM program has early acceptance and general acceptance application periods. We accept early acceptance applications from November 8 to February 15, and general acceptance applications from January 1 to May 15. 

You can apply for early acceptance only if you have completed all prerequisite coursework and meet the minimum grade and GPA requirements at the time of application. 

Applications must be submitted by the early acceptance or general acceptance deadline to be considered for that application period. 

After You Apply

Your application will be reviewed and evaluated by a committee. If you applied for early acceptance, you'll be notified of an admissions decision by early April; general applicants will be notified by early July. Admitted students will be invited to attend new HIHIM student advising in August and will be required to attend both sessions of New Student Orientation on September 20 and 21, 2023, from 5 to 8 p.m.
