We are excited that you are interested in applying to the University of Wisconsin Bachelor of Science in Health Information Management and Technology program. Below, please find information about application deadlines, admission requirements, and how to apply.
If you have a question or would like help with your application, call a friendly enrollment adviser at 1-877-UW-LEARN (895-3276) or email us anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll be happy to guide you through the process.
All application materials need to be completed two weeks prior to the semester start to be considered for admission.
Starting your application early will help ensure you have plenty of time to gather required materials (such as transcripts), transfer credits, apply for financial aid, and complete the University of Wisconsin System Online Admission Application.
Due to COVID-19, many institutions have transitioned to remote operations. When ordering transcripts, it is recommended to order e-transcripts only, as physical (mailed) copies may not be available in a timely manner.
Please see our Course Schedule for course dates.
A Multi-Campus Collaboration
The UW Bachelor of Science in Health Information Management and Technology is a collaboration of the University of Wisconsin Extended Campus and four University of Wisconsin degree-granting institutions: UW-Green Bay, UW-La Crosse, UW-Parkside, and UW-Stevens Point. This partnership allows us to bring you a truly multidisciplinary curriculum taught by knowledgeable and experienced instructors from across the UW System.
Choose a “home” campus
Although you will take courses taught by faculty from all four partner campuses and complete your program entirely online, you will be asked to choose a “home” campus from the degree-granting institutions. Your home campus is the institution from which you will receive financial aid (if you qualify), advising, career services, and ultimately, your diploma. Admission and graduation requirements may vary across these institutions.
- Approximately 45-60 transferrable general education credits with a 2.0 minimum grade point average (GPA). There are options available for those who do not meet this general education requirement, such as starting with one of these associate degrees. Please contact an enrollment adviser for more information.
- Prerequisite coursework in college algebra, communications, and biology; anatomy and physiology suggested but not required
- Official college transcripts
How to Apply
While you are free to apply on your own, many prospective students find great value in speaking with an enrollment advisor first. Our friendly staff is here to answer your questions, talk with you about your career goals, and help you ensure that this program is a good choice for you.
Step 1. Select a “home” campus: UW-Green Bay, UW-La Crosse, UW-Parkside, or UW-Stevens Point. Choosing your home campus is an important decision. Please contact Student Services to discuss which home campus may be the best match for your professional certification and career goals.
Step 2. Apply to your preferred home campus using the University of Wisconsin System Online Admission Application. There is no application fee for all undergraduate degree seeking applicants (domestic and international), with the exception of UW-La Crosse, where there is a nonrefundable $25 application fee.
Step 3. Send official college transcripts from all institutions attended directly to the home campus admissions office to which you are applying. If you have an associate degree, bachelor’s degree, or equivalent coursework, the ACT or SAT is not required.
Formal admission to the program will be determined by the campus to which you apply. Please refer to our FAQ page regarding any specific requirements.
Financial Aid Options
Financial aid is available to students who qualify. See our Tuition and Financial Aid page for details.
