HEALTH SCIENCES COVID-19 FAQ >>


1. Attend an Information Session

The first step in applying to a Health Sciences program is to attend an information session. Some programs — but not all — offer online information sessions. If you decide to view an online information session, be sure to sign in with your information at the end of the session.

Attending an information session is strongly recommended, and in some cases, 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 one to 1 ½ hours and are conducted by the program faculty.

3. Submit a Program Application

Program applications are accepted on a rolling admission basis with a few exceptions. Applications are available in the Florestano Building Room 100 or online. Only complete applications will be processed. Admission to the program is separate from admission to the college. Conditional acceptance is given to qualified applicants who meet all admission and academic requirements.

Information in the program requirements booklets is subject to change. Refer to the application for the most current admission requirements.
