If you are looking for a Bachelor of Science in Health Information Management program outside of KU's program, the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics & Information Management Education website can be very helpful with the search process. For admission requirements for individual programs, check the college/university website.
The following items are required to be considered for admission into KU's health information management program:
Prior to entering the program, students must complete two (2) years of undergraduate college course work with a total of 60 semester credit hours. Please see the complete list of prerequisite courses for details. No grade lower than a "C" is accepted in any prerequisite course.
Grade Point Average
An overall grade point average of 2.5 (on a 4.0 scale) for college course work is required to be eligible to apply. In addition, student transcripts must document an individual course grade of no less than "C" on each biology, chemistry, and math prerequisite course.
An applicant is considered an international student if he or she requires a visa, or currently resides in the U.S. with non-immigrant status, or currently resides in the U.S. while applying for permanent residency. Additional requirements and documentation, such as proof of English language proficiency, are required for international students to become eligible for KU programs. Please review the information for international students before applying.
All individuals admitted to the program will be asked to verify that they can meet the technical standards with or without accommodation(s). Applicants who disclose a disability are considered for admission if they are otherwise qualified.
The Joint Commission requires all incoming students to pay for a background check. This one-time fee must be paid directly to the company performing the background investigation. Students will be asked to provide information and make payment once officially accepted into the program. For more information, please see the School of Health Professions background check instructions.
