The Health Information Management Bachelor of Science is a 120 credit hour program. Students must earn a C or higher in all courses and maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher to graduate.
Students are responsible for completing the degree requirements for their particular plan of study. Transfer students should consult a School of Informatics and Computing academic advisor regarding potential course exceptions and/or substitutions.
The plan of study is subject to revision. We encourage all students to meet with an academic advisor prior to registration each semester.
Some classes are only offered annually. Please work with your academic advisor to plan classes if you started in a spring semester.
Students are required to obtain an AHIMA annual student membership.
