Health Information Technology

Program / Course Details

HIT students are required to meet with the program coordinator/director for completion of an individualized course schedule. Students may complete the program on a part-time or full-time basis. The HIT core professional courses are only offered once a year. Deviation from this schedule may place the student in jeopardy of not graduating within the desired time frame.

In order to continue in the HIT program, students must pass all courses with a prefix of HIT, SCI, HSC, or MED with at least a C in each course. Students not receiving at least a B- in the required courses will not be allowed to continue onto the next sequential course. Students may also be placed on program probation. Students must repeat the identified course with at least a B- before being placed into a professional practice experience.
