The Health Administration, Management & Policy Centralized Application Service (HAMPCAS) is a web-based system that expedites the process of researching, selecting, and applying to graduate health administration programs. HAMPCAS is designed to simplify your application experience while easing administrative burdens for universities.

Using HAMPCAS, you can browse universities and apply to multiple programs by completing just one application. You will upload transcripts, letters of recommendation, and other documents just one time.

What is HAMPCAS?

The Health Administration, Management, and Policy Centralized Application Service (HAMPCAS) is designed for students applying to graduate programs in health administration, healthcare management, and health policy. This national centralized application service enables you to apply to multiple colleges and universities through a single web-based application.

How Does It Work?

HAMPCAS provides you a convenient way to apply to multiple programs through one standardized system. Rather than uploading materials (general information, transcripts, test scores, etc.) for each application separately on multiple systems, you can complete all of your information in one place and then send your application packet to multiple programs.

Benefits of Using HAMPCAS

  • Reduces time and cost when applying to multiple programs; you pay $115 for your first application and $40 for each subsequent application
  • Eliminates the duplication of efforts, as the system only requires one set of credentials (transcripts, test scores, etc.)
  • Facilitates student exposure to a variety of schools
  • Provides a user friendly web application that allows you to:
    • Pay via e-commerce;
    • Update with new information after the initial submission;
    • Conduct "on-line" status check and have real-time access to application status and progress;
    • Download and print worksheets, allowing you to organize your material; and
    • Save progress and continue later.
