Apply to the MHI Program

Admission and scholarship decisions are made on a rolling basis. The application for admission automatically provides scholarship consideration; there is no separate scholarship application. Please review the requirements and instructions before beginning the application process.

Applicants from any academic or professional background are welcome and encouraged to apply to the Master of Health Informatics program. While there are no prerequisites for the master’s degree program, it is recommended that applicants acquire or refresh their knowledge of a relevant analytic discipline, such as basic statistics or computer programming, prior to enrollment. Applicants are not discriminated against on any basis, including age, race, ethnicity, disability or sexual orientation.

All undocumented individuals are eligible for admission to any degree program at the University of Michigan and consideration for merit based awards whether or not they have been granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA). The Health Informatics program is taking steps to create a clear path for prospective students to attend graduate school at the University of Michigan regardless of immigration status.
