Important Announcement: Fall 2013 admission to the HIMT Two Year degree program and the certificate programs is full. The admission process for Fall 2014 will be posted to this website December 2013.
Please note the following process is to be followed for students wishing to pursue the HIMT 2-year degree program or the Medical Coding Certificate program.
Take the COMPASS test.
Complete the required admission courses (ie., CSCI 1001 and CSCI 1101) with a grade of “C” or higher. By completing these courses, the prerequisites to HIMT 1111 will be met.
Complete HIMT 1111 - Introduction to Health Information Management with a “C” or above. HIMT 1111 is the entry point into the HIMT 2-year degree program, the Medical Coding certificate program, the Health IT certificates, and the Health Data Analyst certificate.
Complete a drug screen and background check. Information on the process for the drug screen and background check will be provided when the student takes HIMT 1111.
Once the student passes HIMT 1111 with a "C" or above and passes the drug screen and background check, he/she will be accepted into the program.
Register For HIMT 1111
It is important to note that once you have completed admission requirements for the program, you should not procrastinate in registering for the HIMT 1111 course. The number of seats available in HIMT 1111 is limited and classes tend to fill quickly.
Additionally, please note that although the HIMT programs are primarily web-based, students are required to come to campus for proctored tests and for occasional class meetings. Also, students are required to attend 2 professional practice experiences (PPEs), which require students to report to assigned health care facilities.
