Step 1: Requirements/GPA
To be considered for the MHA/eMHA programs, you must meet the following prerequisites:
- Hold a Bachelors degree (must be completed by program start date)—no specific discipline required
- Meet a GPA requirement of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale
- Two (2) or more years of supervisory experience (preferred, not required)
- GRE/GMAT (see below) waived for the Fall 2021/Spring 2022 admissions cycle
The GRE/GMAT requirement may be waived for applicants with 5 or more years of healthcare experience or management/supervisory experience. Practicing physicians and others holding a master's, law or doctoral degree may be admitted without the GMAT/GRE or supervisory requirement.
Applicants with less than 5 years of healthcare or management experience, lower GPA, and lack of quantitative undergraduate courses, are encouraged to submit GRE or GMAT scores. For questions, contact Brittney Hicken, M.Ed. at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When meeting GRE/GMAT requirements, 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.
Those under the minimum requirements may still be considered.
