Health Information Technology (HIT)


HIT Admission for Fall 2020

Students interested in joining the Health Information Technology (HIT) associate degree program should contact Jonathan Eastabrooks at jeastabrooks@tacomacc.edu. Please include any applicable unofficial transcripts and we will develop a plan to have you take any remaining pre-reqs during the Summer so that you can begin on time in the Fall. Remember that you must have the equivalents to the four pre-reqs completed PRIOR to beginning the program in the Fall. If eligible, Jonathan will provide conditional permission codes to help you enroll for the program while you are either finishing your remaining pre-reqs or getting official transcripts submitted to the college for evaluation. Registration opens on Tuesday, May 12th for currently enrolled students and on Monday, May 18th for open enrollment (non-TCC students).

TCC’s nationally accredited HIT associate degree program is among the leading programs in Washington State. We provide a combination of medical and business knowledge that prepares graduates for successful administrative careers in hospitals, clinics, physician practices, skilled nursing facilities and state and federal health agencies.

The TCC HIT program offers several options, including one degree program and three certificate programs. All programs are offered in a full online learning format.
