For Applicants who plan to apply ONLY to Texas Woman’s University for the master’s program in Health Care Administration. It is probably more appropriate for you to use the “Texas Apply Online” application. There are benefits to this approach if you plan on submitting your application only to TWU. It costs less and is a bit faster that the national centralized site described below.
If you are applying only to TWU, instructions for that process are available in the Apply Texas link: http://www.applytexas.org
For Applicants who plan to apply to several universities for the master’s program in Health Care Administration. It may be most efficient for you to complete the HAMPCAS application.
HAMPCAS is a centralized application service. For example, if you wish to be considered for admission to multiple universities, you can apply to health management, administration, and policy programs across different colleges and universities throughout the U.S by way of a single, web-based application.
Instructions for that (multiple applications process) are available in the HAMPCAS link: http://www.hampcas.org
· Applicants who are applying through the HAMPCAS portal will still need to complete a supplemental Texas Apply Online application if they are accepted to attend Texas Woman’s University. This will require submitting original transcripts and official GRE/GMAT test results directly to the Office of Student Records in Denton, Texas. However, the admissions committee will recognize and use the reference letters, resume and personal goal statement that were submitted with the HAMPCAS application. There is no need to duplicate those documents.
Please read carefully the instructions below.
The HCA program requires that prospective M.H.A students provide:
- Completed application submitted to the Student Records.
- Evidence of an earned bachelor’s degree with a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 on last 60 hours of the undergraduate degree and a minimum GPA of 3.0 in all prior graduate course work with accompanying transcripts for all previous institutions attended.
- Scores from GRE or GMAT tests with preferred scores of 150 on the verbal, 141 on the quantitative and 4.5 on the analytical portions of the GRE or 450 on the GMAT*
- Resume to the HCA department
- Three letters of reference to the HCA department and
Career goal statement for seeking the M.H.A. degree.
In addition, applicants who have earned an undergraduate degree from a foreign university must complete the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Please see the Graduate School requirements
*Applicants may request a waiver of the GRE/GMAT requirement when applying to the Health Care Administration program. Waivers may be granted if the applicant has completed a graduate degree from an accredited US college or university with a grade point average of at least a 3.0.
Admission for graduate study in Health Care Administration is available to applicants who have attained an undergraduate degree with a GPA in the final 60 hours of 3.0 or greater. Applicants who have undertaken prior graduate study must also have achieved a minimum of 3.0 GPA. In addition successful applicants will submit evidence of outstanding academic and work or life experiences that demonstrate potential for leadership in the health services environment. Prior health care experience (employment, internship or volunteer) is preferred but not required.
Provisional admission may be considered for an applicant who did not attain an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 but who demonstrates potential for graduate study based on GRE/GMAT scores, as well as work and/or life experiences that show evidence of leadership qualities. Provisional admission is not guaranteed and will be based on an evaluation of the applicants’ record of accomplishments and potential. Students admitted provisionally must achieve a grade of B or better in each course taken during the first 12 course hours of study. Failure to meet the conditions of provisional admission will result in removal of the student from the degree program without possibility for readmission to this program.
