Health Sciences

Health Sciences programs include those programs that provide direct client care or supportive services to occupations within the medical field. These programs may have limited enrollment opportunities based on available resources and licensure and accreditation requirements. Therefore, additional admission criteria and entrance tests may be required, as well as a competitive ranking system, to determine placement in the program if there are more applicants than spaces available within a program. Students must satisfy all admission requirements and must complete a Health Sciences application each year by the designated date in order to be considered for their program(s) of interest.

If selected for entrance to some programs, applicants may also be required to complete a health physical, immunization requirements, Certified Nursing Assistant I certification, and CPR certification prior to the start of classes.  Failure to complete these additional criteria by the due date may result in removal from the program.

A satisfactory criminal background check and drug test may also be required for participation in the clinical component of some programs. Progress toward graduation might be limited by any inability to complete the clinical portion of the program. Students with certain misdemeanor or felony convictions may have limited license and employment opportunities.

Overview of the Health Sciences Admission Process:
Each Health Sciences program has individualized Pre-Admission requirements that may include some or all of the following criteria:

  1. Completed COA Application on file
  2. All official high school and post-secondary transcripts on file
  3. Minimum English, Math and Reading competencies for the program achieved either through placement testing or coursework
  4. High School or equivalent courses with a grade of “C” or better in Biology
  5. High School or equivalent courses with a grade of “C” of better in Chemistry
  6. Minimal Grade Point Average as designated by the program

Once Pre-Admission requirements have been met, some programs may require additional admission criteria including scoring minimal required scores on the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) and other criteria specific to the program.

Admission Application: When students have met all preadmission, entrance testing, and other specific admission criteria for the program(s) of interest, they must fill out an Health Sciences Application form by the deadline date to officially apply and be included in the pool of applicants for that year and program. A competitive ranking process is utilized when the number of applicants to a program exceeds the spaces available.

Information related to Heath Sciences admissions and curricula are subject to change.
