M State’s hands-on programs help prepare students for rewarding careers in computer information systems, which include some of the fastest growing jobs nationwide.
Recent changes in the health care industry mean increased demand for professionals skilled in the use of information technology to enhance medical care.
M State's Health Information - Technology Specialist certificate provides students with advanced skills in health informatics, a merger of traditional health records management and information technology. The required courses are a combination of health information technology and IT courses.
The 30-credit certificate program, offered through eCampus, is designed for working HIT or IT professionals and for current college students enrolled in HIT or IT programs.
This program is eligible for the MnSCU Two-Year Occupational Grant Pilot Program. Participating students will have their tuition and fees paid after Federal Pell and Minnesota State grants have been applied to their accounts.
Grant recipients must be Minnesota residents and meet income guidelines. They also must graduate from a Minnesota high school, complete an ABE program or pass a GED test.
There is no separate application for this grant. Interested students apply by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or, for undocumented students, the Minnesota Dream Act Application. Funding is limited, so submit the FAFSA as early as possible since applicants will be ranked by their application date.
