Students complete 16 months (four semesters) of on-campus coursework and have opportunities to interact with health care executives from the local community. On-campus study is followed by a 12-month Administrative Residency where the student works and studies at a health care organization under the direct supervision of a senior-level administrator. A faculty advisor is assigned to each student and makes on-site visits during the residency. The Administrative Residency provides students with the practical learning experience to apply the theoretical knowledge attained in the classroom. The On-campus Program usually takes 28 months to complete.
The Department of Health Care Administration requires that all applicants to the On-campus Program:
1. Have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university. All undergraduate majors are considered.
2. Complete a three-credit-hour undergraduate course in each of the following subjects: Accounting, Economics, and Statistics. An applicant must complete these prerequisite courses prior to entering the program; however, if this requirement is not met at the time of application, an applicant must submit a written notice of intention to complete the courses as described here.
Grades of A or B are expected in the prerequisite courses. A grade of C is evaluated on an individual basis. An applicant may submit an acceptable score from the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) for any of the prerequisite courses in lieu of enrolling in the course. Any exceptions to the above will be considered only by individual petition to the Admissions Committee.
3. Submit an aptitude test score from either the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT).
