Interview and Selection Process

Doctor of Health Science Degree

If after reviewing the completed admissions file the applicant is considered eligible for an interview, the applicant is notified of available interview dates and invited by the Office of Admissions to schedule an on-campus interview.

A typical interview day involves participation in the following activities, which are coordinated by the Office of Admissions: an interview with at least one DHS faculty member and an opportunity to meet with an admissions counselor and the financial aid office.

During each interview session, the interviewer questions the applicants about their academic, personal, and professional aspirations and preparedness for admission, and rates prospective students on a standardized evaluation form. These evaluations are included in applicant files provided to the Doctor of Health Science Admissions Committee. The Doctor of Health Science Admissions Committee meets periodically to review the completed application files of applicants who have been interviewed and then submits recommendations to the Dean for final approval. The Dean, via the Office of Admissions, notifies applicants in writing of the decisions of the Admissions Committee.
