Request for Master's Degree
To receive the Master of Health Administration degree upon successful completion of all degree requirements, students must submit a "Master's Degree Request". The degree request should be submitted (online) within the designated time frame during the quarter in which students expect to complete their course work. Registration must be maintained through the end of the quarter in which the degree is conferred. Please review the Graduate School's Master's Degree Request web page to learn more about this process.
Concurrent Degree Requests
Students completing concurrent degrees in the same quarter must submit two separate degree requests --one for each degree using the relevant program major code(s). The MHA major code is "HA G". A manual audit will be conducted by the Graduate School. They will request an unofficial transcript on which you should indicate which courses apply toward each degree by using colored markers to differentiate each degree. You may submit this information (to: G1 Communications/Box 353770) without waiting for the Graduate School's email request if you so desire. For additional information, see Graduate School Memorandum 35
Deadlines and Penalties
Please note: students with prior "incompletes" (i.e., courses yet to be graded and recorded on their transcripts) must complete the relevant course work by or within their final quarter of the program. Otherwise, they will be required to register (even if all other degree requirements are met) during the quarter in which they complete their incompletes. If you are not sure if this applies to you, please contact the MHA Program Manager.
Information regarding MHA and Executive MHA degree requirements can be found at Curriculum Information. Information regarding Graduate School degree requirements can be found at Master's Degree: Summary of Requirements .
