The Bachelor of Science in Information Technology with a major in Health Information Technology (HIT) is a bachelor’s completion degree offered at Miami University’s Regional Campuses.

Students who do not meet given admission requirements will still be admitted but must make up any deficiencies prior to graduating from Miami.

About one-half of the requirements for a bachelor’s in HIT will be met while completing the associate degree at Sinclair. Eligible credits will be transferred to Miami.
