Admission to college programs in health professions is limited to a specific number of candidates each year because of requirements imposed by accrediting agencies and by the availability of faculty, college laboratory, and clinical agency resources.
To insure that all applicants are evaluated in the same way, within each discipline, criteria for acceptance has been developed by the Division of Health Professions and Student Affairs.
These criteria will be utilized in determining the candidates who will be offered admission.
Admission will have a step process: academic eligibility will be determined, as well as a criminal history background check, and admissions examination for the Dental Hygiene, Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Nursing, Paramedic Science, Radiography, Respiratory Care and Veterinary Technology programs.
