For unconditional acceptance into the Master of Arts in Health Promotion applicants must:


  • Hold an undergraduate degree with a minimum 2.75 GPA from a regionally accredited institution

  • Provide official transcripts from all undergraduate institutions (with the exception of Concord University).

  • Provide two (2) general letters of recommendation

  • Complete the general Application for Admission (Word document), and submit it with a $30.00 fee.



Applicants who do not meet admission requirements may submit a letter of appeal to the graduate director which will then be reviewed by the Graduate Council. If the Graduate Council approves the appeal, they will specify requirements for conditional admission to complete up to nine graduate credits with specific stipulations such as earning a GPA of 3.0 or better in the Master of Arts in Health Promotion.

A candidate may apply to the program and take nine (9) credit hours of courses before all admission requirements must be met. However, application and fee, and transcripts are necessary for conditional acceptance. Failure to complete all admission requirements after nine (9) hours of coursework may result in administrative withdrawal from the courses or credit may not be applied toward graduation in the degree program. Once all admission requirements are met, the student will receive a letter of acceptance to the Master of Arts in Health Promotion program and can then continue coursework. Any candidate who does not earn a “C” or better in a course must repeat the course and is subject to additional disciplinary actions by the Concord University Graduate Council.
