Step 1: Read the Health Sciences (HS) Applicant Information Packet for Degree
Programs.
This packet contains valuable information including a checklist for getting started.
Important notice for students who reside outside Ohio:
Sinclair Community College is authorized to provide educational services to students in specific out-ofstate locations. Please refer to our out-of-state student information webpage for information on how this
may affect you at: http://www.sinclair.edu/online/stateauthorization/index.cfm

Dear Health Information Management Student:
Thank you for your interest in Sinclair Community College and the Health Information
Management (HIM) Program. All courses in the HIM curriculum are offered in the
distance learning online format with the exception of the Professional Practice
Experience (PPE) course in the last semester of the program which is performed at an
off-site clinical location. In addition, most courses will be offered in traditional face-toface, in-class format when possible. Each term, students will choose their preferred
format for each course where available.
The technical portion of the HIM program has restricted capacity. Approximately 35
students are permitted through the process described below to enroll in the Local
Cohort each fall. The Local Cohort area is comprised of the extended Miami Valley
area (including the Ohio counties of Butler, Champaign, Clark, Clinton, Darke, Greene,
Logan, Mercer, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, Shelby, Warren, and Wayne, Indiana). An
additional 35 students are permitted to enroll in the Remote Cohort each fall. The
Remote Cohort area consists of anywhere outside the counties listed above.
For out-of-state students interested in our program, please be aware that due to individual
state policies, some states do not allow students to complete our coursework and/or the
Professional
Practice Experience (PPE) portion of the program within their state. The PPE is required
in order to complete the program and receive your diploma. Please refer to our state
authorization webpage for the most current information at
http://www.sinclair.edu/online/stateauthorization/index.cfm.
The HIM curriculum consists of “open” and “limited enrollment/restricted” courses. Open
and limited enrollment/restricted courses are noted on the curriculum sheet within this
packet. Any student may register for “open” courses any semester offered as long as the
required prerequisites for those courses have been met. In order to register for a “limited
enrollment/restricted” course, you must complete the prerequisite courses for cohort
eligibility.
Due to the limited number of resources and Professional Practice Experience (PPE)
sites for the Local Cohort, there is an eligibility waiting list. Students that meet the
requirements to qualify for limited enrollment courses are assigned to a cohort on a
space available basis from an eligibility waiting list. As of March 2014, we currently
have a wait for limited enrollment course registration for the Local Cohort
program of approximately two years and no wait for the Remote Cohort.
Cohort eligibility letters permitting registration for limited enrollment courses each fall
semester are mailed to the first 35 eligible students for each cohort during spring
semester. Some eligible students may choose not to enter the cohort; therefore
enrollment letters will continue to be sent out until the 35 slots are filled for each cohort.
All non-HIM prefix courses required for the HIM program are offered online and in the
traditional classroom setting during the daytime and in the evening. All HIM prefix
courses are offered online. In addition, most limited enrollment courses are offered in the
classroom on the Dayton campus during the daytime with very limited scheduling
flexibility.
Once notification of eligibility to enroll in your first limited enrollment course is confirmed,
you will be required to schedule an appointment with a HIM faculty advisor to review the
3
Revised 8/18/2014
program and complete an academic plan. This can be done via telephone if you live more
than 60 miles from Dayton.
After the cohorts are filled for the fall cohorts, students that remain on the waiting list will
receive an email indicating their status for future enrollment.
For more information regarding online learning and for students residing further than 60
miles from Dayton, please refer to the Distance Learning Website at
http://www.sinclair.edu/online/. You may also reach an advisor at 1-888-226-2457, or by
email at [email protected]
If you have any additional questions, please contact the HIM office at (937) 512-2973 or
800-3153000 x2973.
Sincerely,
Karen Motley, MBA, RHIA
HIM Chairperson

Differences between Local Cohort and Remote Cohort:
All students, local and remote cohorts, are able to take their classes online, face-to-face
in the classroom, or a mixture of both. It is up to the student to decide how they prefer
to take their classes.
The only difference between the local and remote cohorts is the HIM 2252, Professional
Practice Experience (PPE) course which is taken in the last semester of the HIM
program. Students in the local cohort are assigned to PPE sites within the 14-county
area surrounding Dayton. Students in the remote cohort are required to seek and
secure their own site outside the local 14-county area for this class. The HIM
department will supply remote cohort students with detailed procedures for securing a
remote PPE site once they are eligible for the restricted classes.
Students are tracked for the local or remote cohorts according to their county of
residence on file with the college. However, all students may elect to participate in
either cohort (students in a local county may elect to participate in the remote cohort
and students a remote Ohio county or out-of-state may elect to participate in a local
cohort).
Students who prefer to switch cohorts must contact the HIM department at
[email protected] to confirm their choice and receive additional
information.
Local Cohort Counties are:

Note: There may be exceptions to the above dependent upon the individual clinical site
requirements
Mental and/or Physical Requirements for the HIM program:
Prior to the Professional Practice Experience (PPE), a student must provide a physician
health certificate that verifies the student:
1)
is free of communicable disease and in good physical and mental health.
2)
has no physical abnormality, defect, disease or emotional problem which might
interfere with the student’s attendance and progress in the Professional Practice
Experience.
Criminal Background Checks
Many healthcare facilities have begun to require criminal background checks for
students. In addition to some state regulations, the Joint Commission Manual requires
hospitals to implement "a process to ensure that a person’s qualifications are consistent
with his/her job responsibilities." This standard "applies to staff, students and
volunteers," and it further states that the hospital is responsible for verifying "the
following according to law, regulation or hospital policy: information on criminal
background." As such, Sinclair Community College students who participate in
professional practice experiences in the Health Information Management program may
be required to undergo a criminal background check prior to placement at the facility. In
addition, the facility may require students to undergo a physical examination (on-site at
the facility or by the student's primary care provider) prior to beginning the professional
practice experience that may include drug screening. Students may be required to incur
the costs associated with the criminal background check and/or the drug screening.
Please refer to the following link for background check guidelines and forms:
http://www.sinclair.edu/academics/lhs/backgroundcheck/index.cfm

Process for Entry into HIM Cohorts
and Limited Enrollment/Restricted Courses
1. Once a student has HIM added to his/her transcript as a program of study, he/she is
recognized as a HIM student as of that date.
2. The student’s transcript is reviewed by the HIM department for cohort eligibility (limited
enrollment/restricted course eligibility).
3. Students who have completed the requirements for cohort eligibility will be added to the
limited enrollment/restricted course eligibility waiting list in the chronological order in which
the requirements have been satisfied. The following procedure is used to establish cohort
eligibility to permit students to register for limited enrollment courses.
a. Completion of developmental courses, if any, resulting from Placement Test Scores:
DEV 0012 (reading), DEV 0032 (writing), DEV 0024 (math)
b. Completion of BIO 1121 or equivalent with a “C” or better (5-year rule applies)
c. Completion of HIM 1101 or equivalent with a “C” or better
d. Cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or better
i.
In the case that multiple students complete their requirements at the same time,
students will be ranked according to the date HIM was recorded as the student’s
program of study.
ii.
If more than one student has the same recorded date, the students will be ranked
according to the number of courses (total credit hours) in the HIM curriculum they
have successfully completed.
4. Students who have indicated HIM as their program of study and have not completed the
requirements for cohort eligibility will continue to be monitored for eligibility each academic
year. If no progress is made toward completion of the cohort eligibility requirements within
one (1) year of becoming an HIM student, the student will be removed from the HIM
program.
a. Once removed, if the student is interested in the HIM program in the future, the
student must start over with seeing an academic advisor to begin the process again.
