The MS in HIIM is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM).

Both courses should have been completed within five years of applying to the program. If computer programming experience is needed, it is recommended that applicants take CS 2310/2311 Algorithmic Problem Solving and Programming Laboratory. This course is offered during the spring semester at East Carolina University.
