Admission Procedures and Requirements

The requirements for admission to the Program are the following: the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or EXADEP (> 475); GPA (> 3.0), five prerequisite courses of three credits each in economics, algebra, finance, accounting, and statistics (approved with A or B); an interview; proficiency in the Spanish language and knowledge of the English language; and a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university. The UPR-MSC Office of the Registrar receives all applications and reviews these for admission exam and undergraduate degree requirements. These are then sent to the Student Affairs Office, which screens them for other School and Program admission requirements. Applications are then sent to the Health Services Administration Program Admissions Committee. This Committee interviews all eligible prospective students, and makes its recommendations to the Department of Health Services Administration Chair. The Chair makes the final recommendation to the Dean, who recommends admission to the UPR-MSC Chancellor, where the ultimate decision for admission is made. Address any inquiries to the Health Services Administration Program Director at the above address. Eligible students for admission must result with composite admission index above 80%.
