In addition to submitting the documentation as outlined in the section on General Admission Requirements, Health Information Technology applicants must complete the following steps by application deadline.

Submit official transcripts showing that they earned a minimum grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale in high school and on all college work attempted. (Applicants transferring from other colleges will not be required to submit high school transcripts if they completed a minimum of 30 semester or 45 quarter credit hours of study at one or more colleges).

Applicants transferring from other colleges must confirm the transferability of credit for these courses with the college's director of registration and records by the application deadline.

Students should be aware that the commission of a felony before or during their enrollment in this program may prevent them from participating in practicum or externship courses, which will ultimately prevent them from completing the program and will jeopardize their ability to sit for the RHIT certification examination.
