• Frequently Asked Questions - Application Process

    The Online Master’s Degree Program at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center provides answers to frequently asked questions about the application process:

  • Yes, if you are not otherwise exempt by one of the following:

    1. have a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA for undergrad or a 3.2 in prior graduate work
    2. have an MD, DO, PhD or other doctoral-level degree
    3. took the GRE within the past 5 years

    Yes, official transcripts are required minimally from any college or university from which you received a degree.  This is a University requirement and cannot be waived. 

    The University of Cincinnati requires original official transcripts in compliance with accreditation requirements. Student records are audited by the university and the accreditation bodies to ensure that application requirements are being met. An application with missing transcripts cannot be processed.

    It is extremely rare not to be able to obtain a transcript at all from any university around the world.  It may take a little bit of time, but all universities and colleges are able to provide an official transcript. Even when a university or college closes, there are arrangements made for students to obtain transcripts.  If your university or college is truly unable to provide a transcript for some reason, please contact the program coordinator before submitting an application.

    No, unfortunately applications are not transferable. You will need to reapply and pay another application fee.
