Admission to the College does not guarantee admission into any of the health science clinical programs. The programs listed below have limited enrollment capacity and rigorous academic standards. Each requires additional procedures for selective admission, initial enrollment, and continuation in the program. Therefore, there is a special process, called petitioning, associated with admission into each program. Interested students must contact an advisor to discuss the petitioning process and the minimum requirements in place for each clinical program.

Program-Specific Nursing and Allied Health Admissions Information
Each health science clinical program requires that students complete certain prerequisite courses, listed below, with grades of C or higher; maintain a specified GPA; and meet program-specific requirements prior to petitioning for admission to that program. In some cases, students may petition while currently enrolled in their final prerequisite courses. Students may repeat a prerequisite course only once to achieve the required grade. A grade of W has no impact on the student's GPA but does count as one attempt at the course. Please note that the criteria listed below are the minimum requirements for consideration. There is no guarantee of admission to any of these programs based solely upon meeting the minimum standard.
