Admission

Our graduate programs are geared toward highly qualified professionals and committed individuals. To be admitted, you must hold a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university and submit:

  •  Application for admission with a $50 nonrefundable application fee
  • Statement of professional goals indicating how a Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) from Suffolk University will help you achieve your goals
  • Current resume
  • Two letters of recommendation from past or present academic or professional colleagues
  • Official transcripts from all undergraduate and graduate schools attended
  • An official GMAT or GRE score. You can waive the GMAT/GRE requirement if you have at least a 3.0 cumulative undergraduate GPA (on a scale of 4.0) or more than 3 years of relevant work experience.
  • International applicants must submit proof of English proficiency via successful completion of the TOEFL, IELTS, or PTE-Academic. Visit the International Students page for full details.

Want to "test drive" the program before applying? Consider taking a couple courses through the CAPS Program. Courses taken in the CAPS Program will count toward your MHA degree requirements after acceptance.
