*Beginning fall 2020, the Master of Health
Administration program is planning to
offer the degree on both the Armstrong
and Statesboro campuses through the use
of synchronous classroom technology with
WCHP faculty instructors based on the
Armstrong Campus. Prospective applicants
to the MHA program for fall 2020 will be
required to designate their home campus
preference in HAMPCAS. .

All initial applications must be submitted through HAMPCAS, a centralized application system.

Admission Standards

Once an applicant is accepted through HAMPCAS,  the applicant must completed a Georgia Southern University Graduate Studies application for admission, submit official copies of all academic transcripts related to undergraduate coursework at the time of program application, submit official GRE or GMAT scores, prepare a formal Letter of Intent and submit an updated professional/personal resume detailing educational and work experiences for a period of not less than three (3) years from the time of application to be considered for admission into the MHA program.  The applicant must also have satisfactorily completed requirements for the baccalaureate degree from a regionally-accredited institution, and must also score a minimum of 70 out of 110 possible points according to the following formula (NOTE: scoring the minimum required DOES NOT GUARANTEE acceptance to the MHA program, only CONSIDERATION for admission):

  1. Cumulative undergraduate GPA multiplied times 10 (max 40 points); and
  2. Verbal and Quantitative GRE scores divided by 25, or Verbal and Quantitative GMAT scores divided by 12.5 (max 50 points).  For persons who have taken the revised GRE exam after August 1, 2011, scores are converted to the traditional GRE score scale for formula purposes based on the the most current GRE Concordance Table data available as of the date of the submitted admissions application.
  3. Number of years of relevant work/internship/volunteer experience (healthcare, administrative/management, or both) multiplied time 4 (max 20 points). Note: The MHA program reserves the right to determine the extent to which submitted experience(s) is/are relevant under this criterion.
