Registered Health Information Technician (RHIT) Credential Requirements:

  • Individuals who do not have the RHIT credential and graduated longer than two years previously from an HIT or HIS program must attain the RHIT credential prior to being accepted into the University of Cincinnati HIM program.
  • Recent (within two years) graduates of an HIT or HIS program who have not attained the RHIT credential will be conditionally accepted to the UC HIM program. Conditional acceptance will be lifted after the student completes the first semester of the program and attains a grade of a C or above in both courses.
  • Students who have stepped out of the UC HIM program because of unsuccessful completion of the RHIT credential will be allowed to re-enroll in the program as a conditional re-acceptance. All other re-acceptance rules must be applied as well and each case will be reviewed by the Program Manager and Program Director. In addition, bullet item #1 and #2 must be met. Upon completion of the next semester and attainment of a grade of C or above in both courses, the conditional acceptance will be lifted.
  • It is highly recommended that students attain the RHIT credential upon completion of an HIT accredited program. Unsuccessful attainment of the credential, however, will not be a barrier to acceptance to the UC HIM program.
