Requirements*

We ask that you have a minimum of two years’ professional experience, with management experience (e.g., people, budgets, projects) at the time of application to the program. To complete an application for the MHA program, please prepare the following for submission:
  • Proof of Bachelor’s Degree Completion

    Please submit an official copy of your undergraduate transcript that shows the conferral of your bachelor’s degree. An official copy of your transcript means that your undergraduate institution has submitted your transcript directly to Boston College (electronically, through email, or through the mail). You may upload an unofficial copy of your undergraduate transcript as temporary proof of bachelor’s degree completion for the purposes of admissions review; however, the official version of your transcript will be required prior to your enrolling in the MHA program. Please contact your Application Specialist for further details. Please have your official transcript sent to:

    Boston College
    c/o Emily Raviola
    Woods College of Advancing Studies
    St. Mary’s Hall South
    140 Commonwealth Avenue
    Chestnut Hill, MA 02467

    Official Secure Electronic Transcripts can be sent to mhaprogram@bc.edu

  • Undergraduate GPA

    Minimum undergraduate GPA for full acceptance is a 3.0. Conditional acceptance may be considered for students below a 3.0. For those  students with undergraduate GPAs below a 3.0, GMAT or GRE test scores are strongly recommended. Conditionally admitted students may be asked to complete additional requirements and/or achieve particular grade thresholds for the first two courses at the discretion of the admissions committee.
  • Personal Statement

    Please submit a personal statement of approximately 500 – 1,500 words (500-word minimum). Your personal statement should give us a general understanding of who you are, your career goals and aspirations, your interest in the program, and why you are a good fit for Boston College. If you wish to address any other aspects of your application materials (e.g., undergraduate GPA below a 3.0, etc.), please include this in your personal statement.
  • Resume

    Your resume or CV should contain a summary of your job experience and education. You may also include relevant activities, awards and interests.
  • Two Letters of Recommendation

    Two letters of recommendation from professional and/or academic sources. Our preference is that at least one of your letters of recommendation come from a current or recent supervisor who can speak to your managerial experience and your capacity for successfully completing a rigorous graduate degree program.
  • Optional Standardized Test Scores

    GRE (reporting code 7534) or GMAT (reporting code 4X-HX-7) scores – Please note: it is not required for you to take these exams to qualify for admission in the MHA program. However, if your undergraduate GPA falls below 3.0, this is strongly recommended to help your application. Please contact your Application Specialist if you have any questions or concerns about this option.
  • Additional Questions

    As part of your admissions process, you may be contacted by a member of our admissions committee with additional questions. This is not an indication that anything is amiss; we just want to make sure we have all the information we need to review your file. We are happy to set up a conversation with you in-person, online (e.g., Skype), or by phone as you prefer.

Tuition is $1,144 per credit for a 46-credit program. A comprehensive fee of $25 per semester for fall and spring and $45 per semester in the summer helps to support the cost of providing the online courses, online library access, academic support and career services and more, all of which can be accessed virtually. Students pay the comprehensive fee when they take one or more classes during a module.

Federal financial aid is available. A recommended first step is to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at https://fafsa.ed.gov/. Please use Boston College’s FAFSA school code: 002128.

Payment plans are available. Please visit http://www.bc.edu/offices/stserv/financial/altfin/qppp.html for more information.
