Before You Apply

Step One: Attend an Information Session

We recommend students interested in the Bachelor of Science in Health Informatics & Information Management (HIHIM) program attend an information session. Visit the Information Session page to sign up for a session. 

Step Two: Submit Your Unofficial Transcript(s) for Review

We recommend you have an adviser review your unofficial transcripts so you know which requirements you've completed prior to applying to the program. Email a PDF of your unofficial transcript from all institutions you've attended in the past with “Transcript Review” as the subject. An adviser will review your credits and respond with a preliminary evaluation.

  • HIHIM online application 
  • One unofficial transcript from every college or university attended
  • Statement of purpose (instructions in the HIHIM application)
