Some programs through the School of Health Sciences have additional requirements beyond those needed to enter AACC.

The following information is only for students applying to Health Science programs that require an additional application.


1. Attend an Information Session

The first step in applying to a Health Sciences program is to attend a virtual information session. Some programs also offer online recorded sessions, as listed below. If you decide to view an online recorded information session, be sure to sign in with your information at the end of the session.

Attending an information session is strongly recommended. In some cases it's required before submitting an application. Information sessions tend to be informal and cover admission and academic requirements, the application and selection process, curriculum, and career opportunities. Sessions run 60 to 90 minutes and are conducted by the program faculty.
