Some School of Health Sciences programs 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 an information session. Some programs offer virtual sessions or in-person sessions. Other programs offer both virtual and in-person sessions.

Attending an information session is strongly recommended. For some programs, attendance at an information session is required before submitting an application. Information sessions are 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. For your attendance to count, you must attend the session for the entire amount of time that it is conducted. Signing in late will not count.

2. Apply to AACC

3. Submit a Program Application

Admission to the Health Sciences programs listed below is separate from admission to the college. Program applications are either accepted on a rolling admission basis or by an application deadline for competitive selective admissions. Applications for rolling and selective admission programs are available as PDFs for download on this website. The Registered Nursing program application is online using the same application portal as the online AACC credit application. For programs that have an application deadline, the application will be available on this webpage once the admission cycle opens. All admission and academic requirements must be complete prior to submitting an application.
