  • Dr. Betancourt, BHA Program Director is available to answer all questions regarding Healthcare Administration as a major. You may email Dr. Betancourt at for an appointment.
  • All students are required to complete a residency for the BHA. The Joint Commission requires accredited healthcare facilities to complete criminal background checks on all employees. Therefore, a background check is required during your 3rd semester (enrollment in HA 4141) prior to the residency semester. If there is any reason that could prevent your placement at a facility, you will be asked to meet with the BHA Program Director and/or the Field Placement Coordinator to determine if you will be able to complete the residency requirement.

If you are NOT already a student, contact the Undergraduate Admissions Office.
