Student Disclosures

The U.S. Department of Education requires that we report and disclose certain information about our school programs in a clear, prominent, user-friendly, and easily understood manner. The intent of the requirement is to enable students to make an informed choice about a program of study. To this end, we have provided the following information:

  • Salary Data: Prospective students are encouraged to conduct research to determine actual earning potential, as it may vary depending on location, level of education, and experience.
  • Job Outlook Data: The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics profession or industry growth projections are based on nationwide data from a given time. Prospective students are encouraged to conduct independent research regarding local job growth rates, as they may vary from the national average.
  • Suggested Careers: Careers suggested in association with the health informatics graduate programs on this website are not intended to imply any guarantee of employment or qualifications for specific positions. As with all employment decisions, the requirements for a specific career may vary depending on any number of factors including, but not limited to, employer, location, level of education, and experience.
  • Industry Growth: Job growth continues to be strong in the health informatics field, particularly for upper-level management positions. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts a 10% increase for Medical and Health Services Managers and an 18% increase for Computer and Information Systems Managers between 2019 and 2029, much faster than the average for all other occupations surveyed.
  • Course Specific Information: The course description, objectives and learning outcomes are subject to change without notice based on enhancements made to the course. Consult your USF Health student success representative for the most current information.
  • Military and Veteran Education Assistance Information: Information provided as to the availability and eligibility for military or veteran education assistance programs is for general informational use only. Please check with your Education Services Officer or local Veterans Affairs Representative for eligibility, benefit amount and application processes specific to your situation.
  • International Student Credentials: University of South Florida does not provide any kind of assistance in obtaining student visas or in translating documents.
  • Acceptance Process: To be officially admitted, all documents and transcripts must be reviewed and approved. A formal letter of admission will be sent to your University of South Florida email account. Please note that individual situations vary, and your student success representative can confirm where you are in the admissions process.
  • Non-Discrimination Policy: The University of South Florida does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, color, religion, creed, national origin, ancestry, marital status, age, disability, sexual orientation, Vietnam-era veterans status or any other discrimination prohibited by law in the admission of students; administration of its educational policies, scholarship and loan programs; employment policies; and athletic or other university-sponsored programs or activities.
  • University Policies: University policies are subject to change. Please refer to the University of South Florida Graduate Catalog,, for the most up-to-date information.
  • Completion Time: Completion time of degree or certificate programs differ for each individual, based on the number of courses taken consecutively. A USF Health student success representative can help you to estimate your individual completion time.
