How to Apply

The Health Information Management program has a separate admissions process from other undergraduate degrees. Students apply to the program in sophomore year from the Pre-HIM program, other Temple programs or other educational institutions. Freshmen are strongly encouraged to enter the Pre-HIM program, which helps them prepare to apply for the BS.

Applicants are required to have completed (or be close to completing) several prerequisite courses and must have a GPA of 2.8 or higher when they apply.

Transfer students

The BS in Health Information Management has program-to-program transfer agreements with several community colleges in the area (Delaware County Community College, Montgomery County Community College and Camden County College). Students enrolled at these community colleges might receive transfer credit when they enter the BS in Health Information Management program. If you are considering transferring to Temple and are interested in the HIM program, please contact the College of Public Health Office of Admissions at or 215-204-5200 for information about transfer credits and guidance on prerequisite requirements.

Admission to Temple University does not guarantee admission into the HIM program, which requires a separate application.
