Trinity University's Executive Program in Health Care Administration seeks well-qualified individuals with management-level experience in the health care field for admission into the program. Academic excellence, demonstrated aptitude, and health care experience are criteria used in the highly selective admission process.

Application Deadlines

  • Executive Program—July 1st

Application files are evaluated on a rolling admission basis; therefore, the earlier an applicant submits all of the materials described below, the earlier he or she will receive an admission decision. For optimal consideration, applicants are encouraged to apply much earlier than summer deadlines.

All application materials should be submitted electronically via the graduate student application available September 15.

Application Process

Required application materials include:

  1. Completed Trinity Executive Program application form for admission to graduate study. 
  2. A $50.00 non-refundable application fee, payable by check to Trinity University. 
  3. Official transcripts.
  4. A résumé or autobiographical sketch detailing your educational background and employment experience.
  5. A brief statement of purpose (1-2 pages typed and double-spaced) explaining your reasons for selecting a career in health care administration.
  6. Two letters of recommendation from individuals who are familiar with your academic and/or employment performance.

Once an applicant's file is completed, the Admissions Committee reviews it on an individual basis to determine if academic criteria are met. If the initial review is positive, the applicant is invited to the Trinity campus to interview. Shortly after the interview date, the Admissions Committee makes a recommendation to the Chair of the Health Care Administration Department. The applicant receives a letter notifying him or her of an admission decision as the last step of the admission process.

The above information and further details about university policies are available in the annual Trinity University Courses of Study publication. Assuming an applicant meets the academic criteria for graduate admission, Trinity does not discriminate in admissions on the basis of race, color, age, religion, sex, marital status, national origin, or disability, veteran or disabled veteran status. Any questions or complaints relative to discrimination should be referred to the Director of Human Resources. The Section 504/Americans with Disabilities Act compliance officer is the Associate Vice President for Fiscal Affairs. Questions or complaints relative to facilities, services, and accessibility should be referred to the Office of Fiscal Affairs.
