About Our Program
UA - Pulaski Tech offers the Health Information Technology (HIT) as an online Associate of Science in Health Information Technology degree. Our program is in the process of earning the accreditation for RHIT for our AS program. Until we earn our accreditation, students may not sit for this exam, however, it is anticipated that students in the first class will not have to wait more than a few months after graduation before our program earns accreditation. This is not a guarantee, but a note to students applying in the first year of our new program.
The associate's degree program requires 38 semester credits of general education core, and 39 credits of lower division program coursework for a total of 77 semester credits. The degree program is offered year-round with courses offered in the fall, spring, and summer. The associate's degree program is 8 semesters, part-time. Students are admitted to begin the AS program in both the fall and spring semesters. There's a $20 HIT program fee per semester.
