The University is located in a residential community on the south side of Chicago and reports to a local board of trustees. The 161-acre campus can be reached by public transportation and parking is available for student vehicles. The student body of the University is multiracial and includes part time and full time students, many of whom are older than the traditional college age. There is one student dormitory on campus. Most students commute to campus. Chicago State University welcomes applications from prospective freshmen, transfer, international, non-traditional and professional students. The Department of Health Information Administration is a part of the College of Health Sciences and is located in the Business and Health Sciences Building. The Department offers a baccalaureate degree and post baccalaureate certificate. The College has three other academic departments Nursing, Occupational Therapy and Health Studies. The college also houses the HIV/AIDS Research and Policy Institute and the Campus Wellness Center. Programs in health sciences are committed to the preparation of competent health professionals who possess a sense of personal, social and professional responsibility. The Health Information Administration Department The Department of Health Information Administration personnel include full time and part time instructors who have expertise in their area of teaching. Most faculty members also have extensive leadership experience within the profession. Students are assigned to an advisor who will help to ensure that they are making progress towards program completion. The small class size provides opportunities to interact with faculty and fellow students. Students enjoy dedicated classroom and computer lab space. The HIA Club exists to connect pre-professional students with professional students and faculty. Applying for Admission to the Professional Program Entering freshmen and transfer students must meet the general admission requirements of the university and successfully complete the required university examinations and courses in English and reading. The mathematics examination is required for statistics but might be waived for students who have previously completed college algebra and a basic course in statistics at an accredited institution.

Applicants who apply early will be advised by mail of their admission status by June 1. Course of Study The baccalaureate degree curriculum is divided into the pre-professional phase (freshman and sophomore years) and the professional phase (junior and senior years). 124 credits are required for the Bachelor of Science Degree with an overall GPA of 2.0. The pre-professional curriculum includes completion of the University s general education requirements as well as the basic science courses and prerequisites for professional course work.

The semesters of the professional years should be taken in sequence beginning in August of each year. The professional curriculum focuses on health information administration theory and its application. Clinical application is simulated on campus and provided in health information centers during a junior year professional practice experience (PPE) and a senior year management PPE. Junior students may complete their PPE as a directed practice one day a week along with course work during spring semester, or in a three-week block during the summer following the junior year. The Junior PPE is scheduled for a total of 120 hours. The Senior Year PPE is scheduled for one month (a total of 120 hours) during the spring semester of the senior year. Seniors must complete all courses in the curriculum except for the RHIA Prep Course in order to register for the Senior Year PPE. Achievement of a grade of C or better is required in all junior and senior level courses and in any health information administration course offered in the pre- professional phase. A grade of C or better is also required in all science courses in the preprofessional phase. Health Information Administration courses may be repeated only once. Students who receive less than a C in three Health Information Courses will be dismissed from the Department. Students who receive less than a C in a repeat Health Information Administration course will be dismissed from the Department. Students must score at least 75% on each of two comprehensive examinations during the professional phase of the program. The first comprehensive examination consists of junior year course material given at the end of the junior year. Students who score less than 75% on the exam will have an opportunity to take a second exam prior to the beginning of senior year study. The exam must be passed prior to beginning the senior year. The second examination is given at the end of the HIA 4700 Exam Prep course. This examination covers all of the professional content and must be passed in order to receive the Bachelor of Science Degree or Certificate in Health Information Administration. Students failing to achieve a score of 75% on this examination will be given one opportunity to repeat the examination. Students who fail the senior comp exam a second time must repeat the course. 3
