Many students complete one of the four-course certificate programs before seeking admission to the master's

4-course graduate-level certificate programs:

designed to help professionals acquire advanced knowledge and skills while pursuing studies beyond
their Bachelor's Degree. They allow individuals to explore graduate education without committing to the
full master's degree program. The courses completed in the certificate program with a grade of "B" or better can also be
applied towards the Master's Degree in Health Informatics and Management, if the certificate candidate
decides to continue on with his/her studies. Students who complete one of the certificate programs with
a GPA of 3.5 or better are not required to complete the GRE for admission into the master's degree program.
