- The health informatics program places no restrictions on the number of credits that may be double counted with credits for your primary program of study. Your primary program, however, may place such restrictions. Check with your primary program to learn its rules regarding double counting of credits.
- The dates/times of required GCHI courses may conflict with courses of your primary degree program; thus advanced planning is necessary.
- GCHI students are not guaranteed enrollment in GCHI core courses, especially those in high demand. Every effort is made to accommodate declared certificate students (especially those in their final semester), but this is not always possible.
- We advise meeting with the HI academic advisor early to make a plan of action for completing the certificate.
