The graduate programs in Healthcare Administration offer rolling admissions with 3 starts per year

UNE has a rolling admissions policy for the healthcare administration degree program, with three start dates each year (summer, fall and spring semesters). We process applications and accept students as we receive applications, so it’s beneficial to apply as soon as you’re able. Class sizes are kept purposefully small, and they do fill up.

Each semester consists of two eight-week terms. Click here for our Academic Calendar for a visual representation of what that means. Read more about what rolling admissions means for online graduate students.
