In order to apply to the HPA MHA program, you must submit an application through the Schools of Public Health Application Service (SOPHAS) system or the Heathcare Administration, Management & Policy CAS (HAMPCAS). 

Application materials for applying through SOPHAS or HAMPCAS include:

  1. Completed SOPHAS or HAMPCAS Application and fee
  2. UIC Supplemental Application and Supplemental Fee: UIC requires a brief supplemental application and non-refundable supplemental application fee ($60 for Domestic and International applicants). The supplemental application can be completed here:
  3. Personal Statement
  4. Resume or CV
  5. Three letters of recommendation
  6. Transcripts:
    • Domestic Applicants must submit transcripts issued from the University for all undergraduate and post-baccalaureate work directly to SOPHAS. Students who have completed course work at foreign institutions should follow the instructions provided for international applicants for submitting those academic credentials.
    • International applicants have two options for their transcripts. One is to submit a course by course WES evaluation directly to SOPHAS or HAMPCAS. Second is to upload the transcripts directly into the UIC system after completing the Supplemental Application. Under either scenario, students admitted to the UIC School of Public Health will need to provide sealed, official transcripts to the UIC Office of Admissions prior to their second term at the university.

  7. Official Standardized Test Scores: Required of all MHA applicants.
    • GRE Scores sent to code 7931 will be forwarded and shown as official on the SOPHAS application. GRE Scores sent to code 6965 will be forwarded and shown as official on the HAMPCAS application.
    • Scores sent to code 1851-0616 will be received by UIC only.


Applicants are advised to carefully follow each step in the application process as mistakes can delay the processing of your application.

Applicants must submit their application by the SOPHAS or HAMPCAS deadline, no later than 11:59 PM Eastern Standard time.

If you have any questions regarding this process, please do not hesitate to contact the UIC School of Public Health at or (312) 996-6628.  We look forward to receiving your application.
