Admission and Schedule
At Saint Francis University, we appreciate that our students come from a wide variety of academic and professional backgrounds. As such, we aim to maintain minimum admission requirements that allow for varying backgrounds but still reward and encourage previous educational achievement.
Applicants to the program must have graduated from an accredited institution, having obtained a bachelor’s degree. A cumulative GPA of 2.75* from the student’s previous academic work is required for full acceptance into the MHSc program.
They must also submit the following:
- Completed MHSc application (electronic)
- 1-2 page Statement of Purpose essay
- Two letters of reference
- Current resume/curriculum vitae
- Non-refundable application fee of $50.00
- Official undergraduate transcript(s)**
- A non-duplicated email address (a personal email address unique to each applicant)
*Applicants with an undergraduate cumulative GPA of 2.5 to 2.74 may be accepted to the MHSc Program on a provisional basis.
**If undergraduate education has been obtained outside of the United States, an independent educational assessment may be required as part of admissions process.
Once admitted and before beginning the online masters degree in health science program, you’ll participate in an interactive, online orientation. This orientation is designed to help you learn about available resources, acquaint yourself with the only learning system, and prepare yourself for graduate-level coursework. The orientation is easy to complete and provides useful directions, not to mention effective study and time management techniques.
Our goal is to ensure that each of our students feel welcome and comfortable with their learning environment before they start completing coursework. For those who may not have been a student in some time, the orientation is also an excellent opportunity to re-acclimate to collegiate academic standards.
If you have any questions about the orientation, our enrollment team is available to help address any issues. They can be reached by phone at (866) 305-8038, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
