The Admissions Committee extends interview invitations around the last week of March to those applicants believed to be a strong match for the MSMHA program. Invited applicants are encouraged to interview on campus, however faculty are happy to interview via Skype if visiting campus is not a viable option. Applicants who are able to visit campus have one interview with a small group of faculty members (2-3), and have the opportunity to meet current students and tour the campus. Again, an on-campus interview is not required for admission.12
