    I am a current health information professional with my RHIT and will be going for my RHIA soon. After I complete the RHIA I want to look at MHA programs. Do you have a large portion of your students come through the program that are health information professionals?

    • Margo Eagon says:

      Hi Ryan,
      Yes we do! A large number of students from the HIM background come to our program when they are looking to learn advanced business, management, and leadership skills in health care. This MHA is well matched for health information professionals. For additional information, please feel free to contact me at 877-398-3050. Thank you

    Is there any flexibility on the GPA requirement. I am just below the required 3.0 but meet all other requirements.

    • Margo Eagon says:

      Hi Betsy,

      If your cumulative undergraduate GPA falls below a 3.0, there are a couple recommendations to consider before applying. One suggestion would be to take non-matriculating (non-degree seeking) courses at the graduate level from a local school. This would give you the opportunity to show your recent academic experience and performance in graduate level courses. I recommend that you take a look at our curriculum on our website ( to get an idea on what health care related courses you could take. Unfortunately, we do not offer non-matriculating courses online. Second, you can also take the GRE exam and submit your scores to be considered for admission. At present, we do not offer provisionary admission to the MHA program. For additional questions, please contact an advisor at 877-398-3050 ext. 5038.
